Further information

A bit of information about Group Therapy:

Most people are less familiar with the idea of group therapy than they are with individual psychotherapy or counselling. And I have found that there are some common misconceptions, often derived from how 'group therapy' is portrayed in films, on the tv etc.  So I hope that a brief outline here will provide a bit of information.

Group therapy can provoke some anxiety initially; this is natural. But most of the time group members go on to experience the group as both a supportive and enlightening place. As time goes on, a group matures into a thoughtful and containing space of exploration.

Group analytic therapy provides a setting in which up to eight people meet at a set time each week for an hour and a half; to address issues they bring and to work through the process of personal change. Much of the distress we feel comes from the way we have learned, through life, to relate to others. Human beings have always lived in families and social groups ad analytic therapy groups provide an ideal setting in which these issues can be explored. The group enables its members to better understand their own patterns of thought and behaviour in relation to others. Members are encouraged to question, explore and re-examine their thoughts and experiences. Through this we can come to an understanding of how past patterns of behaviour affect current relationships and take the opportunity to explore different ways of being. A group can help members to feel less alone with their problems and feel worthwhile to others.

A group will have up to 8 members who meet weekly for an hour and a half. As members leave, new members join.  It is the group experience that is therapeutic; with each member's development and progress enhanced by the presence of others.  The therapist will help to ensure a balanced group through a process of assessment before people join and taking into consideration the group's needs at any particular time.
