Group therapy services are offered face to face for groups either at the Centre for Emotion Focused Practice or offsite. These services are underpinned by person-centred, existential and humanistic philosophies, utilising process experiential emotion focused techniques.
The centre’s therapists are all fully qualified and strive for empathy, genuineness, respect and a positive working alliance which has shown to be the best predictor of a curative outcome.
Practitioners are relationship focused and affirming of each member of the group’s needs, beliefs, values, feelings, and natural tendencies towards growth and healing.
Therapeutic groupwork can be powerful and effective along an individual’s personal recovery journey. Alongside the actual therapeutic content of the particular workshop or group, valuable modelling, social connection, group witness, validation and support, and wisdom and experience can be shared within the group leading to empowerment, change and healing.
There are also some self help support groups running at the Centre.
GROUP THERAPY EVENTS AT THE CENTRE INCLUDE:
The Centre for Emotion Focused Practice holds community and private events in which the clients can take part as an ongoing process of emotional development and healing. Here, they can also get a first hand experience on the various treatment modalities offered by our practitioners.
