Practising new skills and decreasing your isolation
The Power of Groups
I regularly run group sessions for clients who share similar issues. While the thought of attending a group may sound like the last thing you want to do, groups can also offer clients an concentrated opportunity to support the learning of new skills while also providing increased support.
Groups usually run with a minimum of 6 people and are based on strict confidentiality.
