What does individual therapy entail?
Our counsellors can work with you to make sense of long-standing patterns of thinking and behaviour, increase your understanding, and confront destructive patterns, working towards beneficial change. We maintain that for meaningful change to take place, it can be important to explore the origins of a problem, rather than focus only on the symptoms. This is where a skilled facilitator can help to identify deeply held, often unconscious, beliefs or attitudes that can impact on the issue. Individual psychotherapy can work on building a fuller or more appropriate way of living, which better expresses us individually in relation to the world.
Many of the personal problems faced can arise in the context of our relationships and family background. The Grove offers sessions for couples, adolescents and families to help work through their difficulties and find more fulfilling ways of relating to each other.
