Group Work

Creative & Therapeutic Groups

As a group therapist and experienced workshop facilitator, I have experienced numerous times the healing and transformation that can happen through the collective. When individuals feel safe and supported in a group, they can begin to allow themselves to be who they are, feel held enough to take risks, to open to greater intimacy.

Some of what you might expect to gain from group work is:

  • being able to express your feelings through creative forms
  • feel safe and grounded in your body
  • develop intimacy with others
  • learn to take risks
  • develop insight into your relational patterns
  • find your voice
  • begin to relate authentically with others
  • have greater awareness around your boundaries
  • integrate the ‘shadow’ parts of yourself, moving towards wholeness
  • reconnect with and begin to heal your inner child- access playfulness, joy, freedom
  • connect with the essence of who you are, hearing the voice deep within
  • feel part of a creative, conscious community

My approach to group work involves both creative art therapy forms and relational group process. Through movement, enactment of stories, myths and fairy tales, drama, role-play, voice, rhythm, poetry and art materials, we go on a journey of creative, embodied exploration. On the other side of this journey, we process the feelings and insights that came up for us, by sharing them in the group. This relational processes involves support, intimacy, constructive challenges, an opportunity to experience different ways of relating and opening up to something bigger than ourselves.

Reflections from souls I have journeyed with

  • “Müge has a wonderfully welcoming and positive presence; her smile puts you at ease and helps you open up to her and others, and to yourself..”

  • “Müge was inspirational. She somehow connected to my inner world, saw my worries and felt my wounds. She helped me to find a way to heal myself and get grounded...”

  • "Müge brings a playfulness and beauty to her work, also has a real soulful depth to it. She is able to hold this lightness and depth in a way that feels safe and supportive."

  • “....the question of 'where / what is home?'...I realised so much from such depth within me and my childhood in that day about what makes me feel safe and how important that is.”

  • "Müge is heartfelt facilitator, who gracefully held the group, allowing a deepening and opening, with something wonderfully surprising emerging through the dance and enactment. Highly recommended."

  • “ It was an immensely rewarding journey...”

  • "From one of the workshops i attended, I remember the 'unbearable lightness of' being a feather....still to this's probably been 10 years...and I remember it often when I feel particularly stressed."
