Welcome to Online Group Therapy. As days are growing shorter and nights colder what can be better than spending time in a warm circle of caring supportive people? Especially in the present, when new restrictions on socializing are being introduced every day my online therapy group offers a friendly hub where you can feel safe to voice your concerns, share your feelings and find understanding.
Group Therapy can be helpful in many ways. This is what one person says about his experiences of group therapy:
“For me the main thing about therapy group was the opportunity to learn about other people’s lives and witness their fluctuating emotional states. This can be quite a surprising eye opener. Sometimes quite cathartic. You can be profoundly moved. It certainly helped me to become more attuned to other people and more empathetic.”
Most importantly, Therapy Group allows us to interact with others in a safe and nourishing space and thus can be very effective in enabling us to
- Improve our interpersonal and social skills
- Express and explore our emotional challenges in a supportive environment
- Overcome loneliness and create the sense of connectedness
- Alleviate anxiety
- Develop our self-awareness and empathy
I ran therapy groups for many years and both myself and the participants found it to be very enriching and gratifying experience. Now I am introducing the online format which opens the group for people from different parts of the country and indeed of the world! I want to keep the group fairly small though (6-10 people) and would be grateful if you could let me know soon whether you (or a friend of yours) may be interested in attending.
Here are a few essential details:
When? The group is intended to start in early November, meeting fortnightly in the evenings.
How much? The cost is £12 per session payable by Paypal or bank transfer.
How long? I would ask the participants to commit to 6 initial meetings (1,5 hours each) and then review.
The first session is a taster and you can decide not to attend after it.
Can I join later? Once the core group is established and going the question of newcomers will have to be put to
Please share with others and feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
Look forward to hearing from you.
With warmest wishes,
