Group psychotherapy takes place in small groups of four to six people. Most problems that we experience in life, and that bring us to counselling or therapy, have as a basic common difficulty that of making and maintaining close and satisfying relationships with others. In a psychotherapy group we have the opportunity to explore how we relate to others and the difficulties we experience in this, and also to experiment with changing how we relate for the better (for us). The group is a kind of ‘social laboratory’ for us to do that. The insight and changes we make can then be ‘carried over’ to our relationships with others in our lives outside the group.
Those wishing to join a psychotherapy group at the Porchlight Practice should first work individually for a minimum of six sessions before joining one of our groups. Please contact the practice for more details.
