Counselling groups address personal and social concerns. The goal is the  resolution of specific issues. Severe psychological and behavioral disorders are usually referred to individual counselling.

Group work may encompass a psychoeducational focus or group counselling process. Psychoeducation develops a group member’s individual cognitive, emotional, and behavioral skills within a structured process. The goal is to help individuals develop a more effective way of living by increasing their knowledge of skills. The process involves an educational component, group discussions, and feedback by group members and facilitators.  

Group work focuses on:

  • Enhancing interpersonal skills to improve interpersonal relationships
  • Learning to manage disabling emotions such as anxiety and depression.
  • Increasing personal insight and awareness of ineffective emotions and behaviors and learning how to manage them.
  • Enhancing problem-solving strategies through improved understanding of one’s own feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

Group work uses Attachment therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness techniques

In our practice we facilitate:

  • Connect Parent groups  for parents of adolescents ages 13–18 years. This is an Attachment-based model that includes CBT and Trauma therapy principles.
