What is group therapy?
Group therapy gives you the opportunity to learn about yourself through your interactions with other group members.
As with individual therapy, confidentiality is the foundation of any therapy group. Having this strict boundary facilitates an atmosphere of trust and safety.
Through the relationships which develop between group members, authenticity and openness in these and their other relationships grows.
As a group matures, members connect, gain confidence, receive and provide support, and learn about themselves.
The group is there to support and gently challenge you. Expect to feel stretched, to discover new perspectives, and to celebrate the differences and similarities between you and others.
Current group work
I run a weekly, long-term psychotherapy group for refugees and asylum seekers as part of my role at the grassroots NGO, Room to Heal.
In private practice, I co-facilitate the Dalston and Hackney Therapy Group with my colleague, Lucy Watt, an accredited Humanistic Counsellor.
