Group Therapy & Workshops

Group Therapy focuses on a specific theme or topic that is processed and discussed in a group with other individuals or couples for 1-2 hours each week, over a period of 4-10 weeks.

Workshops are focused on skill development; and therefore, are generally a one time event that lasts 2 hours to 2 days. The objective is to learn about a specific topic or learn a skill.

Group counselling session-capacity varies and depends on the specific group. Group sessions are appropriate for pre-teens, teens and adults. Group topics may include: identity, coping/self-soothing, mindfulness, self-esteem/self-worth exploration, parenting topics, as well as, many other possibilities. Do you have an idea, theme, or topic for a group counselling session or workshop you would like to attend? I would love to hear about it, contact me today for a free initial consultation.

Groups are also a more affordable method of counselling if the cost of one-to-one counselling is not within your budget.

The View From Over Here - Couples Workshop

Schedule:

SIGN UP TODAY TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT

Description:

Come learn new skills and gain insightful understanding about creating a healthy and exciting relationship. People in challenging relationships often see communication or lack of communication as the problem; they blame an affair for coming between them; or they complain that compatibility or even unhappiness is the reason they have a struggling relationship. The truth is that these are symptoms of a greater issue in the relationship. They are the result of a significant issue in your relationship, but they are not the problem. The benefits of a group setting is that you will have more opportunity to practice different skills with a variety of people, which is sometimes easier than with a emotionally charged partner or spouse. It also provides a safe space to share experiences and grow from other members’ learned experiences and knowledge.

Cost: $80/per couple for each 90 minute group therapy session – groups can run anywhere from 4 weeks to 10 weeks

Spots are limited to 8 couples – Workshop must reach minimum of 4 couples to run.

Are you between 11-16 years old? This group is for you. This is a safe place to come and discover who you are. “Who am I?” is a complicated question.

This is a place to come and discover who you are and how to walk confidently in who you are even when other people try to get you to be something you don’t want to be. In this group you will grow in your confidence and identity while learning to build healthy relationships with other teens your age. We will also discuss ’emotional intelligence’ and learn to identify our own emotions and what to do with them when they feel too heavy to carry.
