The intention behind this group is to create an arena for Personal Development and self discovery through group therapy.
It is intended for people from various walks of life, from the generally interested and curious to both new to and practitioners of the following disciplines: NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Psychology, Philosophy, Life Coaching, Self Help, Personal Growth, Personal Therapy, Group Therapy, Self Actualisation, Spirituality, Meditation, Self Awareness, Reiki, Yoga, The Secret, The Law of Attraction, etc.
This is a space in which real discovery is made – dropping all the masks and revealing who we really are. We share our true selves, gain feedback and insights and grow through experiencing others and ourselves. The goal of our work together will be to identify and transcend our limiting patterns and beliefs and to enhance our interpersonal relationships. Therefore, sincere, honest, and authentic participation is necessary.
We will be meeting once a week, share ourselves and grow through feedback and insight. This is a process group that will run for 10 weeks at a time, will take place in a supported environment, and be facilitated.
The cost of the course is £400 so please only request to join if you are serious about this experience.
Although anyone can join, there will be an assessment process before members can attend the group sessions.
For more info on group and how it works, please read this extract:
In group therapy approximately 6-12 individuals meet face-to-face with a trained group therapist. Interaction between group members is highly encouraged and provides each person with an opportunity to try out new ways of behaving; it also provides members with an opportunity for learning more about the way they interact with others. It is a safe environment in which members work to establish a level of trust that allows them to talk personally and honestly. Group members make a commitment to the group and are instructed that the content of the group sessions are confidential.
It is not appropriate for group members to disclose events of the group to an outside person. When people come into a group and interact freely with other group members, they usually recreate those difficulties that brought them to group therapy in the first place. Under the direction of the group therapist, the group is able to give support, offer alternatives, and comfort members in such a way that these difficulties become resolved.
During group therapy, people may begin to see that they are not alone and that there is hope and help. It has long been recognised that we can often feel awkward when viewing ourselves on videos or listening to our own voices on tape recordings. Group therapy explores this anxiety around how we appear and how we are perceived and provides an opportunity to begin to understand how we may be experienced by another person, in a safe and secure setting. Of course it can just be comforting to hear that other people have had similar difficulties.
