Confidentiality in the group is essential, and you are asked to commit to never discuss other people in the group or to reveal their identities. You do not have to use your real name, but you are asked to have both camera and microphone on unless you are interrupted or your space is noisy.
You are asked to attend at least two individual assessment sessions online to help prepare for the group. This is to enable us to begin to make a working alliance, and so that I can understand and support your needs and wishes in the group. The cost for two assessment sessions is £130.00
The sessions are Thursday evenings 7.30-9pm UK time, 35 sessions a year, with breaks during school holiday times. The fee is £73.00 per calendar month, paid on the 20th of each month. There are no sessions during August but the fee is averaged out over 12 months. Sessions are currently held on Zoom. An individual link for each session is sent to you in advance, by email. Times and dates can sometimes be negotiated with the agreement of the other group members.
You are asked to make a commitment for three months at the outset as the group cannot function if people drop in and out. The format of the group is “slow open” which means new people are invited over time as others leave. The minimum number for the group is 4, and the maximum 9.
If you may like to join the group, please complete the form, and we can arrange a phone conversation.
