Group Psychotherapy – an attachment-based approach

How Can Group Psychotherapy Help?

Would you like to be able to cope better in personal relationships, in your family, at work and in other group settings?

The aim of an attachment-based approach to Group work is to provide a therapeutic, safe space to share feelings and give and receive support on an ongoing basis.

The Group, of no more than 8 participants, will enable you to work on:

  • Understanding and finding strategies for coping with stress, hurt, anger, and anxiety.
  • Finding ways to nurture and care for yourself emotionally in your relationships with others and build self-esteem.
  • Sharing feelings with others in a safe environment and giving support to each other to work on current issues of concern.

What Does Being In an Attachment-based Therapy Group Involve?

Participation in a Therapy Group involves attending sessions on a weekly basis and exploring the feelings that come up in your interactions with others in the Group in a safe and supportive environment.

There will be an initial Assessment Session just between you and the Group therapist/s. This is an opportunity for you to talk about your difficulties and problems and how the Group can support you in order to explore together if it is right for you.

How Long Does It Take?

Groups are for a fixed term usually lasting 10 weeks meeting for an hour and a quarter on a weekly basis. There is also the opportunity to join a longer term group in consultation with the Group Therapist/s spaces permitting upon completion of a short term group.

Where Do Groups Take Place?

Currently Groups are based in South East London, in several locations within easy reach of West Norwood, Tulse Hill, Dulwich, Streatham, Balham and Crystal Palace. There are mainline rail services from Croydon, Victoria and London Bridge.

What About Cost?

Sessions cost £25.00. There is also a fee of £25.00 to cover the cost of the initial Assessment Session, which is only payable if you join.
