Group Psychotherapy

What is Group Therapy?

 

The therapeutic dynamics and strengths of a group are the foundation upon which group therapy is built. Focusing upon a central communal theme, the aim of the group is to facilitate an experience which enhances self-awareness, coping skills, resilience and emotion management.  Groups help us to discover roles and patterns of communication within relationships, allowing us to reflect in a safe space with our group and find support.  By sharing, listening and the discovery that others relate to our experiences we are comforted by the feelings of support and the knowledge that we are not alone.

 

The success of Group psychotherapy is characterised by acceptance, empathy and belonging through which we experience joint co-evolution through co-operation.
