Some problems are very successfully treated in small therapeutic groups. Many people find the group setting makes them feel more confident, it reaffirms that people are not as ‘neurotic’ or alone as they might feel when experiencing life’s difficulties.
Unlike individual therapy sessions, (small) group therapy offers participants the opportunity to interact with others with similar issues in a safe, supportive environment.
Participants can try out new behaviours, role play, and engage with others in not only receiving valuable feedback and insight from other group members, but also in giving it.
Many people are quite apprehensive about the idea of being in a group. Rosalind ensures high quality experiences by screening each possible participant privately, for suitability to this mode of treatment. Only people who will flourish in a well-facilitated structured group program are enrolled. If people do not want to participate in a group, or are not suited to group counselling, they will of course be treated in individual private sessions.
