Group members stay for as long as they are finding the group useful. In order to support group stability and cohesion, you are encouraged to commit to attending for at least 9 months.
I am sure you will agree that it takes a little time to settle into any new group. A therapy group is no exception. In the early days it is natural to feel anxious. The group will support you in this. Everyone has been a 'new member' at some point.
There is no set agenda or subject for the group. The discussion is determined by the members and what is on their minds. Group members are encouraged to bring what is going on for them elsewhere, but also to talk about the experience of being in the group alongside other members. It can for example, be interesting and helpful to explore the role we typically adopt when in a group.
You will never be asked to talk about anything which you don't want to talk about.
There is a shared understanding in the group that what is discussed in the group remains confidential.
Regular attendance is important as it supports group cohesion and stability. Generally members find that once they get started they don't want to miss a group. The group meets for 42 weeks of the year, with breaks notified in advance.
