Fortnightly therapy group

With Jan Cassidy and Dawn Wilson

This group is a regular space to explore life themes and learn more about ‘how I relate to others and the wider world’. Being in a group offers a unique opportunity to explore, share, support and work on themes as they arise in the here and now. We will explore thoughts, feelings, wishes, longings, reactions and experiences. There is the chance to develop new relationships and a shared sense of purpose and journey. Potential themes include: intimacy, isolation, anger, anxiety, difference, joy, fun, shyness, shame, guilt, grief, loss, belonging, love, fear, spirituality and sexuality. There is space for individual interests and whatever is brought alive by your experience within the group. We will attend to relational processes in the group, whilst inviting creativity and curiosity.

This group can provide therapeutic experience in itself, or provide additional support to the work of individual therapy.
