Therapeutic Encounter Group

Over a period of time, when the therapist feels that the client is ready to take responsibility for his / her feelings, he / she would be invited to move into a therapeutic encounter group consisting of not more than three / four individuals – all of whom would have emotions manifesting at similar intensities and who have gone through individual therapy for a period of time.

The main advantage of group therapy is that the individual not only gets support, empathy, reaffirmation by members but also gains insights into their behaviour.

Sincere feedback from other group members helps the client in gaining anchorage and authentication of the real world.

These groups do not discuss intimate details of its members outside the group.

This group invites straightforward and authentic confrontation for the growth of its members.

These confrontations address overindulgence in sentimentality of its members.
