Women’s Support Group – Gibsons or Vancouver

Join therapist Sandy Kirkwood in a 4-week women’s support group, online or in person

I once participated in a 3-year therapy group as part of my counsellor training. It changed my life. For me, the experience of group therapy provided many benefits including the opportunity to have deep conversations with others in a supportive, safe environment. It increased my self-awareness, which led to a more grounded self-confidence and better relationships. It also opened my heart and deepened my compassion through witnessing and being inspired by the growth and changes of others in the group.

While individual therapy allows you a focused space to consider your concerns in depth, group therapy provides the opportunity to engage with others who may be experiencing similar issues. As you begin to share how you are viewing your problems, you may find that others in the group have insights, ideas, encouragement and life experiences that can enlarge your perspective. You may also find that the support of others creates a sense of belonging and instills hope that change is possible.

It may sound scary to imagine yourself talking about your private concerns in front of others, but there are ground rules that go with group therapy that include things like confidentiality and how to respectfully give feedback in the group. Creating a warm, safe, caring environment is one of my strengths

This group is for you if you would like to:

  • Have a place to talk about your life, your relationships, your worries, and anything else that has you feeling stuck
  • Focus on improving your life situation in a concentrated space of time
  • Increase your feelings of self-worth and confidence
  • Gain clarity about yourself and your life situation
