THE NATURE OF GROUPS

About groups....they can be as powerful as individual counselling. There are some processes for which individual counselling is more suited. For example processing a specific traumatic event. However, for many the power of a group, of belonging, of journeying together, and of the isight of others who are on similar terrain can be incredibly healing in a way that is entirely unique to a group setting. Groups can take different forms, either psychoeducational (teaching skills etc), or process (the content that is brought by the unique members), or guided (creative activities and promoted discussions). The following groups take different formats and are geared towards different specific populations and age groups (e.g., refugees) . However, it would be possible to adapt the material to fit other settings and populations if requested.
