Connecting Space

Therapy Groups and Workshops

These are designed to activate greater depth connections between individuals and couples, all workshops/groups are offered as taster days or evenings with the opportunity for further sessions and the possibility of forming a flexible, secure network group. By being part of this “creative space” there is the potential to meet others without the personal baggage that so hampers ordinary relationships.

All aspects of relationships can be explored

  • The inter-personal — what goes on between you and others
  • How you relate to yourself — what you say to yourself about who you are
  • How you view the past, present and future on a meta level
  • Being able to speak out what seems unspeakable.

Workshops are created to suit the unique needs of each group. Groups are formed for individuals and/or couples, with a flexible structure.

Three types of group:

  1. Couples Exploring Intimacy: managing difference
  2. Individuals day workshop Assertiveness Awareness and effective communication
  3. Individuals evening group Who am I when my Partner is in the Past

There is a choice of joining a mixed gender or single sex group. From Nov 2005 to Sep 2008 Kate and Jill ran a women’s survivors group, which met monthly. If you are interested in being part of a new group please contact us.
