What is it?
Groups are a way of one or more practitioners delivering therapy with several people at a time rather than on a one-to-one basis. Each group will differ depending on the focus of the work and the therapy method used.
Why do we do it?
Being part of group allows people to see that they are not the only one experiencing these difficulties and that they are not alone. Group members are also able to help each other by sharing information and learning from the experience of one another.
Who is it for?
Each group will focus on a particular difficulty and as such will have different suitability for people.
What does it involve?
Groups will involve meeting regularly, in a group setting. It gives you a chance to share and learn from other people as well as from the therapist.
What is required?
- Commitment to attending sessions
- Openness to new perspectives
- Practising tools and techniques away from the sessions
- Ability to set limited achievable goals to work on during treatment
