Group therapy caters to a wide range of issues – high dependency needs, reactions to traumatic life events, relationship and character problems, problems of identity and meaning, occupational issues, career problems. A therapy group provides a safe and nurturing space to relate and explore your problems and feelings. It offers a microcosmos of the larger world: the people you meet in the group offer a relationship experience, while you in turn offer a relationship experience to each of the other group members.
Though group members are dealing with different problems, they share the experience of being in exile. The group provides support and challenge in order to find one’s place in the world. Our weekly group accepts members who speak English as their mother tongue or who speak it fluently enough to feel comfortable working only in English.
The block group may be a solution if you are seeking reliable therapy and would consider joining a group – yet have circumstances in your life which make weekly attendance difficult, e.g., a demanding job with long hours, or you live far from Berlin or outside Germany. You yourself may be a professional in the field seeking formal development. The groups also provide a training base for psychotherapists and for those who might have earlier found their way to growth and understanding through individual psychotherapy / psychoanalysis.
“In group therapy you can deepen your understanding of why you are the way you are, and how that unconsciously affects you in relationship situations.”
