2017 Group Therapy Weekends As the four seasons move through the year, we can find opportunities for reflection and to make changes in ourselves. Reflecting on the way we feel, what we think & ways in which we behave. As part of this reflective process I am offering you opportunities to open yourself to change, through the dynamics of group therapy. Group therapy sessions are a great way for people to be supported, work though issues and benefit from the company of people who are also seeking to make personal changes. I am offering:

About Group Therapy The weekends will be spent in Group Process Therapy led by Janine Piccirella. The group will

take the format of Transactional Analysis process therapy. What this means is that the group will be a safe and confidential space to develop understanding, awareness and insights about yourself and others. Each group member will have the valuable role of offering

space and along with constructive feedback and perceptions to help one another achieve your desired goals.

Janine will work in the group with the therapeutic relationship(s) to facilitate change and growth for each individual. The use of different methods of therapeutic interventions will help facilitate the change and growth in you, dependent on your individual needs. The group process is valuable and can be profoundly moving as it offers you a chance to be seen, to change and develop new healthy life patterns. To empower your personal growth, which enables you to move towards autonomy.

About Janine

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist and work with Transactional Analysis (TA) as the main therapy model I use. I am qualified at Masters Degree level and hold both UKCP and MBACP accreditation. I have been practicing as a therapist for seven years working privately, in the NHS and with local EAP companies. I offer individual, couples and group counselling, working short, medium and long term. I work with a range of presenting problems including depression, anxiety, abuse, bereavement, relationship problems, identity issues and many more. Integrity, straightness and a willingness to be honest and real with my clients are my

main values. These values help me to be genuine whilst being respectful and helping my clients towards their therapy goal(s). These values shape my style as a therapist, I believe that everyone as the right to expect open, honest and genuine dialogue that encourages recognition of different thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I respect individual uniqueness, whilst encouraging individuals to take responsibility for their own care, learning and development within a safe and structured environment.

About Transactional Analysis Transactional Analysis (TA) is a model of psychotherapy used for understanding human development and facilitating change to life patterns. TA provides a stimulating and engaging framework to understand how we have developed into who we are and how we relate and communicate with others. TA offers explanations as to how we continue to repeat patterns of behaviour, thinking and feeling; that may be self-defeating and painful. TA’s concept of ‘life-script’ explains how we can continue to re-play childhood strategies in life today and this can limit an individual’s potential. Once we become aware of our self-defeating patterns and self-limiting beliefs they become available to change. This is achieved by working together contractually to achieve the desired therapeutic goals. By gaining awareness, intimacy and spontaneity, along with changing out dated and often dysfunctional decisions, we can be empowered and develop positively in our lives. Therefore new healthy life patterns, personal growth and self-development will emerge, which will in turn enable us to reach autonomy.
