Group Therapy

for your personal development

Group Therapy

Groups normally have between 5 and 8 members.

Group therapy offers a unique experience of sharing your therapy. Through the unfolding relationships in the group, you will gradually learn about your relationship patterns and establish new affirming ways of being with others.

Being in a group can help you to develop relationship skills as well as providing you with a real sense of belonging. If you are interested in people and want to develop your interpersonal skills then this could be the therapy for you.

The group meets on a weekly basis in Sheffield on Thursday evening from 5.30pm – 7pm.  New members have the opportunity to join the group when a place becomes available. Normally there will be up to eight members in a group.

Currently there are places available for new members to join.

Being in a group can help you to develop relationship skills as well as providing you with a real sense of belonging.

How do I join?

If you’re interested in joining the group, or would like to find out more about group therapy, you can book an exploratory appointment. Just leave me your details in the contact form below and I will get back to you to offer you an exploratory appointment.

What is an exploratory session?

Like all types of therapy, it is always helpful to take a little time to explore if this type of therapy would be beneficial to you. I normally offer three exploratory sessions before making a decision about people joining a group.

When are exploratory sessions offered?

Exploratory sessions are available on Thursdays between 4.15 – 5pm.

How do I book an exploratory appointment?

If you’d like to find out more information about group therapy and whether it might be helpful for you, you can book an exploratory appointment. Please see the calendar below.

When could I start group therapy?

If you are offered a place, you will be given a time frame for when you could join. This is dependent on the circumstances of the group at any given time, but could vary from a few weeks to a couple of months.

How long can I stay in the group?

You get to decide when you leave the group but as a rule of thumb it is helpful to stay in group therapy for a minimum of one year. This will give you and the group time to get to know one another. It will also give you an opportunity to work through some of the issues that come up for you whilst you’re in the group. Normally the longer you stay, the more you will benefit from group therapy.
