How does it work?

Group programs are a fantastic way to implement the strategies and foundational skills learnt in 1:1 therapy sessions. Group programs are run by Therapists and AHAs with a structured program written to target a variety of goals and objectives specific to the group purpose/theme. The therapy team puts time into ensuring each group is appropriate for each individual.

Questions to ask when considering Group Therapy?
  • What goal(s) are you wanting to achieve?
