GROUP PARTICIPATION

We acknowledge that the idea of attending a group program can sometimes be stressful. Our facilitators create a group atmosphere that is relaxed and non-judgemental, so that each participant can gain as much as possible from their experience.

Whilst a minimal level of participation is necessary, there will be opportunities for you to decide how much (or how little) personal information you share with you group.
