At South Pacific Private we understand the value of building and maintaining healthy relationships and how important they are in supporting a persons’ mental wellbeing.
Participants will gain a unique insight into how their behaviour impacts others, and how others’ behaviour impact them. Building on Yalom’s guiding principles of group therapy through the installation of hope and universality amongst others, participants will have the opportunity to build personal awareness and improve relationships by learning how to deal with interpersonal differences and conflicts in a more helpful manner.
The program is facilitated by skilled therapists who have trained in process orientated groups and are attuned to the interpersonal dynamics that arise within the group environment.
