I am currently recruiting participants for a 10-week Mini Focus Group on Personal Development. Please see details below:
Aim: Develop participants' skills and confidence regarding self-care and self-management, clarify personal direction and raise awareness of participants’ goals and dreams.
Venue: The Healing House, 24 O’Connell Avenue, Phibsborough, Dublin 7
This will be a mini group, held in my therapy room in The Healing House, and will have two to three participants only.
Day & Time: Mondays 6pm – 7.30pm. In the first meeting we will identify what each participant needs and wants from the group sessions. Each following session will be structured around those identified themes, also incorporating psycho-education needs that arise as we progress through the weeks.
Dates: 11th Jan, 18th Jan, 25th Jan, 1st Feb, 8th Feb, 22nd Feb, 29th Feb, 7th March, 14th March, 21st March. The group will meet for 10 Mondays, with a break on 15th February (school mid-term).
Topics for sessions may typically include but are not limited to: Family; Relationships; Managing Your Time; Managing Your Budget; Self-Care; Assertive not Aggressive; Personal Goals for the Next 6 months, 1 Year, 3 Years; Positive Thinking; Life Direction.
The themes for each group will be determined by the participants’ needs and they may bring other topics that we will work on instead of drawing from the list above.
I am running these mini-groups drawing on my experience of developing and running psycho-education groups in Clondalkin with Serenity Counselling (www.serenitycounselling.ie) in 2013, and with the Rise Foundation (www.therisefoundation.ie) in 2013 and 2014.
Cost: The price is 45.-euro per session. Participants are asked to commit to the 10 sessions when they join the group.
