Group work is about experiencing a ‘one for all and all for one’ approach to addressing individual aspirations and problems.
A group is both a refuge and an adventure. By providing every participant with as many perspectives as people in the room the group is a fantastic source of inspiration, feedback and guidance. The group is always changing, at each moment crystallising diagrams like a kaleidoscope. Working therapeutically in a group means to participate with the opening of every individual sprout until a forest is finally grown. And what a great joy a beautiful forest can be!
Goals of Group Therapy: Be nurtured by many perspectives – Stop the isolating belief that “I am the only one who feels this way” – Process difficult emotions safely – Identify old negative patterns and develop new alternatives for being oneself – Review defence mechanisms that have become problematic – Create healthier relationships – Learn how to be more honest – Rehearse new dynamics of interaction with others

“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.” Soren Kierkegaard
