What we're about
ARE YOU TIRED OF SMALL TALK? Are you bored by platitudes or politeness? Is it frustrating never really knowing what’s truly going on for people, or sharing what’s actually going on for you? Are you fed-up with being an inauthentic version of yourself? Do you long to talk deeply or laugh genuinely with others, without filling every second of silence?
ARE YOU READY TO TRY BEING MORE REAL? Would you like to really connect with others and relate more authentically? Are you interested in exploring this thing of being you, and of being human? Do you dare to challenge yourself, to tip-toe or step out of your comfort zone, to grow?
If you can relate to the above, you might want to consider joining a:
REAL RELATING GROUP: A laboratory for being yourself with others
2 hour weekly meetings, for 10 weeks
£20 per person, per meet
*Some personal experience of individual counselling/therapy required*
These groups can help you:
- Develop personally
- Reduce or share isolation
- Experiment with being yourself
- Understand your place in the world by using the group as a mirror
- Heal, and help others
- Enjoy your life more

Individual therapy can be important and impactful for understanding and accepting more of who you really are, and yet there can remain a hunger or a need for something else, something more. Real Relating Groups provide a uniquely insightful opportunity to explore how to BE who you are with others.
This experience will consist of a closed group of 6 - 8 people that commit to meet together, each of whom will have some experience of individual counselling or therapy. I will also be there in a facilitative role. These meetings will last for 2 hours and take place at a regular time and place on a weekly basis, for 10 weeks.
Over the course of the 10 weeks, the group members will come together to learn experientially about being themselves with others through the group work process. By design, the meetings are relatively unstructured: there is no real plan, agenda, topic or pre-arranged direction. This is a key element that helps keep things refreshingly real, as there aren’t the formalities and restrictions that we’d usually find in more structured meetings. This helps ensure that whatever is most important or alive or pressing in the moment has space to emerge and can be explored for and between group members.
The content of such a laboratory may include the sharing and exploration of the highs, lows and in-betweens of people’s current lives, past experiences, and experiences in relation to each other in the group. We may also end up exploring wider human, social and cultural themes that seem relevant in amongst all that, and any other elements that arise from the unpredictable turn of events of such a group process.
As part of the joining porcess, a free 25min suitability assessment (without obligation) will be arranged before a place in a group is confirmed as available. Once confirmed, a payment of £200 will be required to book onto the group.
