Group Therapy

Number 42 offers men's and mixed groups of various sizes and theoretical orientations.

Who is group therapy for?

Group psychotherapy can help people with a wide range of emotional difficulties. It is particularly suited to those who would like to improve the way they relate to others, offering the chance to find out how you are seen. A therapy group can be seen as a microcosm of society.  As such it offers an opportunity to examine and understand the impact upon us of the world around us.

What to expect?

Groups at Number 42 can be of varying sizes, a common number is eight, but they can be more. They take the form of an open conversation with no pre-set topics. Group members are encouraged to share their thoughts and feelings in an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality. Relationships in the group develop and provide a way of revealing how past experiences influence the present, offering some choice going forward.

Joining a group

You would have one or more individual meetings with the group therapist to see whether the group would be helpful for you and, if so, to help you prepare to join it.

The group will usually run weekly. Fees are negotiated with the group convener.
