Duration 2 hours once a month.
Our Personal Development group currently meets weekly. The group membership is fixed for one year so we try not to introduce introduce new members until the year has elapsed. In the group we explore our personalities, interactions and contact within a safe, nurturing environment. We strive to provide a work space in which we can develop and grow as human beings, using a mixture of personal therapy, dream work, contact experiments, mindfulness and a small mixture of psychological theory to support the individual to explore all that makes them who they are and help them develop choices for a more meaningful future.
We encourage and support members to use the whole group to explore different layers of contact, to work with each other, to support and challenge one another, to enable the novel to be something to approach with curiosity rather than run from. With the emphasis on the here and now we challenge perceptions and norms, and support you to push your personal boundaries.
If members of the group give themselves to the process, they will not be working in isolation, they will often develop friendships, and a new relationship with their own environment. They will find they have more options when facing difficulties, they will be able to explore difficult personal issues and come away with a clearer understanding of how they are effected, and how they can change moving forwards.
We recommend that if you are joining the group you also undertake some 1-1 therapy. This does not have to be with the therapist running the group. Things may arise in the sessions that you are uncomfortable with and wish to explore in a more personal space before the next group meeting. To talk to someone about this group please call 07724 186 672 or email for a confidential discussion.
