Group therapy

I have run groups for six years based on group analytic principles. Briefly this means that in a group of people with similar troubles we work through a constructive process towards solving the problems that each individual brings up in the group. Trust is developed over time and is strengthened by the group analytic method where the therapist helps the group to a deeper understanding of what hinders the group and its members’ growth and development. Problems which are particularly appropriate for group therapy include trauma, social phobias, relationship problems, divorce and the challenges of sharing children and various forms of anxiety. Group therapy can be used in relation to almost all types of psychological problems or personal development issues (for more detailed information see the article on group therapy and the Tavistock method under ‘disciplinary profile’)
