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!
