At the heart of Group Therapy is the idea that human beings are fundamentally social beings, who spend their lives with other people in one way or another.
One's habitual ways of relating are often reproduced in the group setting. This gives the group the opportunity to examine and understand the difficulties that arise, and this in turn allows new more productive patterns of relating to emerge and be established.
Participants start getting a real sense of how they are experienced by others through feedback from, and interaction with other members.
Participants can discover that despite their differences, other group members have had similar kinds of experiences to themselves, and this tends to reduce the sense of isolation and shame.
The Groups meet on a regular weekly basis with a group therapist and each group session lasts two hours. Our Groups are limited in numbers with new members joining the Group when spaces become available. Group Therapy costs £120 per session, and the therapy fees are paid after each session.
The group is a structured space and programme in which participants are encouraged to speak about their lives and difficulties, as well as to engage with and respond freely to others. Strict confidentiality is maintained regarding the exchanges that take place within the group.
