Group Therapy

 

Is Group Therapy For Me?

If you are thinking about having therapy, and working individually with a therapist feels daunting, group therapy may be for you. Working together in a group, you can explore many types of issues and concerns, often learning from others’ experiences as you listen and observe, and making sense of your own problems at the same time. Group therapy is created as a safe place for you to belong and share things, to be heard and seen by others. Some people attending 1-2-1 therapy may also benefit from joining group therapy, as the group provides an opportunity to experience relationships in a new way.

What is Group Therapy Like?

Joining a group of strangers can sound overwhelming, but many people say how rewarding they found a group experience to be. The group can act as a support network where you and other members can help each other come up with ideas for dealing with difficult situations. Regularly listening and talking to others can help you put your own problems into perspective. You may feel as if you are the only one struggling, but being in a group helps you see how others may be experiencing similar issues, and it can be a relief to know you are not alone. By seeing how others deal with problems and make positive changes, you can find a whole new range of ways to face your own concerns.

Group Therapy at WeightMatters

Group therapy at WeightMatters involves a trained therapist facilitating a group of up to 6 people, with a minimum of 3 people for the group to go ahead. Group therapy sessions are led by a therapist with specialized training, who teaches group members proven strategies for managing specific problems. That guidance can help you make the most of your group therapy experience. Our groups are designed to tackle a specific issue relating to disordered eating in its many forms, but other issues such as anger, loneliness and low self-esteem may arise from this

 

Overeating Therapy Support Group

What is Overeating Therapy Support Group?

This 8-week course is a great introduction to group therapy. It is designed for people who struggle with overeating or binge eating, whether you have just noticed this pattern of behaviour, or if you have been struggling for years.

  • Do you find yourself feeling out of control around food?
  • Are you tired of struggling with weight and body image?
  • Do you find yourself resolving to make changes and then become increasingly frustrated when your good intentions don't seem to stick?

Starting on Sunday 14th January, and meeting on a fortnightly basis, this 8 session therapy group is here to help you explore what may be underlying your unhappy relationship with food and weight. Much of our behaviour is influenced by thoughts, feelings and circumstances, which are often outside of our awareness. This is part of the reason why we sometimes find ourselves acting compulsively around food in ways that can be difficult to understand.

By joining a group of people who are going through a similar experience, you will have the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other. Facilitated by one of our therapists, Sarah Dosanjh, this group offers a supportive and explorative opportunity to transform your relationship with food and understand what may be sabotaging your weight and health efforts.

Our next group starts on Sunday 14th January 2018 facilitated by Sarah Dosanjh. Sessions run on Sundays for a total of 8 weeks, from 11am to 12.30pm. The cost is £240 for the eight-week course.

What are the Benefits of Overeating Group Therapy?

We have designed this group therapy for overeaters to allow you to experience how others’ stories impact you, and for you to notice how your story impacts others. Learning what to do with our experience, our thoughts and our feelings in these situations allows us to build new healthier ways to navigate life. This in turn provides you with alternative ways to be and cope with your feelings and relationships. This can have a positive affect on reducing your overeating behaviours.

Who leads the Binge Eating Group Therapy?

Sarah Dosanjh

Sarah is a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a Transactional Analyst Therapist, and she draws on different, but complementary, theories and techniques, to best tailor the therapy she offers.

Sarah decided to train as a psychotherapist after her own recovery from compulsive overeating, which was made possible through group support. She is passionate about helping people to release themselves from self defeating patterns and believes group therapy can be a powerful catalyst for these changes.

Together, in a safe and non-judgemental space, you can explore your relationship with food and eating, and begin to understand how it intersects with and responds to other relationships in your life, from earliest childhood to the here and now
