Group Psychotherapy

What is Group Psychotherapy?

Group Psychotherapy is a longer term therapy, providing a safe space so that people can talk about their difficulties. This increases self-understanding and improves relationships with others. Being able to express difficult thoughts and feelings makes them less overwhelming, and in time, more manageable.

It is particularly helpful for people with difficulties in their relationships, their self-confidence or in communicating with others. This may be in all areas of life or particularly in work, home life or with friends and family.

Group Psychotherapy is often helpful if you are feeling isolated or alone, finding it difficult to trust others, feeling on the edge of things or struggling to belong, lacking self confidence, feeling depressed, feeling anxious, finding repeating patterns in your relationships, experiencing difficulties with self-identity or knowing who you are, having difficulty understanding your feelings, feeling stuck in a particular role in the family or at work or noticing how early life experiences are affecting you now.
