Small group therapy session at H-L Therapy

Our popular small groups therapy sessions for people with disabilities and mental illness are now operating face to face and online from our office in Modbury, South Australia.  This means that we can now offer support for anxiety, depression, and emotional well-being without being restricted by geographical boundaries.  The groups include therapeutic meditations and positive psychology groups and TAM Group.

Nothing makes a human feel more alone than being socially isolated. For many people living with mental illness and disabilities, this social isolation has nothing to do with Coronavirus, although our current climate of self-isolation does not help either.  Even before the pandemic, for many people life was a challenge full of emotional ups and downs that tended to undermine even the strongest of desires to build and maintain friendships and relationships. 

Although in the past some people have joined various social and interest groups to access social support, this option is no longer available as easily as it was in the past.  This means that many peiople has limited opportunity to enjoy the benefits of social interaction, and companionship.  For many, the feeling of loneliness and despair is becoming an everyday occurrence.  Struggling with daily anxiety, depression, and chronic lack of confidence many people have isolated themselves even further and given up on their goals, dreams, and aspirations.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can re-connect once again in a friendly, supported, therapeutic athmosphere, either face to face or online.  Our group therapy sessions can offer social support, companionship, and therapy to aid our emotional wellbeing.

The MEDART Group Program

The MEDART Program combines the practice of guied meditations and artistic expressions for a greater personal awareness and insight, confdence buiding and improved emotional regulation.This group is especially recommended for people who experience challenges with confidence, stress and anxiety management.

 

The TAM Group Program

The TAM Group Program, Therapy, and Movement for Self Improvement is one of the most important offerings we have ever developed because it helps people who face anxiety, depression, and mental illness to develop greater confidence, skills, and strategies to constructively manage the fluctuations of their emotions, enabling them to improve their emotional wellbeing and connect with other people.
