Personal Development Groups
This group is for anyone who would like the opportunity to explore their emotional issues and concerns and gain a deeper understanding of themselves in an atmosphere of safety and trust. It is also more cost effective if one to one therapy seems un-affordable.
The group aims to enhance your:
- self- awareness,
- self knowledge,
- self-esteem and confidence
- quality of life
- awareness of how you relate to others and learn how you are seen by others
- resilience and ability to cope with issues
- self compassion and compassion and understanding for others
The group aims to reduce:
- self criticism,
- stress levels,
- shame and guilt
- the influence of past experiences that prevent us moving forward
Participating in a group will benefit you by helping you to see that by sharing your experiences and hearing other people’s experiences you can be of support to each other and reduce feelings of isolation with an issue. You give each other acceptance and a sense of belonging. It helps you to explore how you relate to others and are perceived by others. You will be encouraged to experiment with new ways of relating and making connections with others. You will learn to take responsibility for your actions and your impact on others.
What will happen?
You will need to be willing to commit to a minimum of six sessions and to keeping the confidentiality of the group, the other group members and the issues brought to the group. There is no pressure to speak until you are ready and the sessions will be based on whatever emerges from the group that week.You will be encouraged to share your story and issues and your responses to what others are bringing. This includes sharing what you are thinking or feeling as someone else speaks. You will be encouraged to build respectful relationships with the other members. This then forms the basis of the support the group can offer you and the support you will be able to offer.
My style of working is embodied, relational and creative. I aim to use my creativity and authenticity to support and inspire you to live the life you want and to connect with others with kindness and respect. My hope is that my presence, experience and integrity grounds our relationship, and as a result, you too feel more centred, supported and exhilarated in your relationships with each other and outside of the group.
My intention is to nurture enough of a meaningful connection for you to engage in the group process; and feel completely comfortable to bring whatever you need to. In this way I hope to encourage you to stay with difficult issues and feelings and offer you sufficient challenge to lead to reflection and personal growth.
The cost of the group is £40.00 per person for two hours. There will be a maximum of 8 participants. If you would like to register your interest please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07787242442
