There is something very special about being part of a healthy, well functioning group whether that is a work based team, a sports team or the family group which is the core group in most of our lives. A much loved part of my work is using groups for personal and/or professional development. These groups are managed using group analytic understandings.

Group analytic understanding is based on the view that people are fundamentally social and that each person is determined by the world they live in. The individual is thought to be a nodal point in a network of social processes. Symptoms of distress are as such thought to reflect blocked connection and communication with the group.

'The experience of belonging to a group over time can in itself be healing. To be oneself and to have a sense of belonging: these are valuable achievements in a pressurised, at times alienated existence.' Morris Nitsun

Currently my events are featured on Eventbrite and workshops delivered via the ZOOM platform.
