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:
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.
