Groups: Time Being Women

Groups of individuals encountering one another provides a particular kind of personal development and healing process. The theme of each session is developed by the group members within each session, this will allow the group to meet the needs of its members. Being in a group allows members to learn to express feelings, needs and explore experiences. Such interactions within a group provides members with an opportunity to explore new ways of expressing themselves and learning more ways to be with other, this learning can lead to more satisfying, nurturing relationships.

Of course coming along to a group maybe daunting and the Time Being Women Group devotes time to welcome new members. Issues are raised and experience shared in what we hope will be an atmosphere of openness and mutual trust. However, conflict does occurs in groups and feelings may become hurt. Group members in training or in practice usually have the support of a personal counsellor and/or supervisor. You may come away from a group session feeling distressed or confused, happy or energised, this is part of the process of being in a group.

Some advantages of group therapy:

  • Can be more powerful and changes happen faster than in individual one to one therapy
  • You will have two therapists and other members of the group to support you, so there is more safety to explore difficult feelings or experiences as more than one person can hear and understand you
  • The feeling of belonging and sharing can be a healing factor in itself
  • Cost effective
  • Flexible , you can come to the sessions as and when you need it

All members make a commitment to keep the content of the group confidential. Please contact us to express your interest in joining our group.
