Connected

Connected explores themes around loneliness. It is for those who feel they lost connection with the world around them, with others or simply with themselves. Connected is a space for you to look at what feelings come up when you feel lonely and isolated and share it with a group of peers who are going through similar struggles. 

How does it work?

The group meets once a week for 90 minutes on Zoom (see dates below). There will be 12 sessions comprising of 6 to 10 participants and 2 therapists.

 

This is a process group, which means it is intentionally unstructured to give the opportunity to all participants to feel free to explore what feels current to them. 

Fees

The full cost is £250, it includes 12 group sessions and two 30-minute one-to-one sessions with one of the therapists, one before the therapy starts and one after session 6 to check in with you how you are finding the group. 

 

At the time of registering, you are asked to pay a deposit of £150. The remaining of the fees can be paid in two instalments, one by 1st February and one by 1st March. There is a possibility to make one full payment as well.
