Meeting an individual counsellor may not be affordable for you. Or your therapist or friend might have suggested the benefits of being part of a group alongside other work you are doing
Therapy Groups exist for alcoholism and drug addiction and possibly in the NHS for anxiety and depression (ie based around a particular subjects) but there is not a culture or history of counselling groups in the UK for people who want to learn more about themselves generally in an affordable way but are not included in the above particular groups.
Low cost Therapy Groups might be a possible option for you. Thursday mornings at 9.30am is the time for this group. Two colleagues are running groups starting at 7pm on Thursdays also, please contact me if either of these two options are of interest
The groups cost £20 for 90 minutes and would have betwween 6 and 12 people in them. Each group runs for ten weeks and new members need to wait until the next 10 week cycle before they can join (ie the group is a closed group once it has started a ten week cycle).
