Weekly Group Psychotherapy Sessions in Totnes, Devon.
I offer weekly group psychotherapy sessions in a private studio space in Totnes, south Devon. These sessions are two-and-a-half-hour long group sessions. The group is long-term and 'slow-open'. This means that there is a stable group of individuals working together in the group, but new people occasionally join, as and when spaces become available.
The group is based in the practice of Psychodrama, Sociometry & Group Psychotherapy. These are powerful methods that help individuals in the group make sense of their feelings and experiences, re-find their creativity, and encounter one another in authentic and meaningful ways.
Group therapy sessions take place every Monday evening from 6.00-8.30pm. Sessions last for two and a half hours and group members pay £150 a month for a place in the group (about £37 per session, most months).
What is Psychodrama?
"Conceived and developed by Jacob L. Moreno, MD, Psychodrama employs guided dramatic action to examine problems or issues raised by an individual. Using experiential methods, sociometry, role theory, and group dynamics, Psychodrama facilitates insight, personal growth, and integration on cognitive, affective, and behavioural levels. It clarifies issues, increases physical and emotional wellbeing, enhances learning and develops new skills.
The word 'Psychodrama' is often used as a generic term when talking about the range of action methods that J L Moreno developed. Action Methods are used to enable past, present and future life events to be explored. Issues or problems and their possible solutions are enacted rather than just talked about. Psychodrama offers the opportunity to practise new roles safely, see oneself from outside, gain insight and change. There is a director, an action area and group members. The director supports groups to explore new solutions to old problems, group members participate in the drama as significant others and share how they personally relate to and can learn from the presenting issue at the end of the session."
