Psychotherapy offers a space to make sense of our experiences and relationships and how considers how these influence us in our daily lives. As we develop meaning around this we intrinsically find ways to move forward to live our lives in the ways we more naturally want, with less internal constraints
Facilitated Support Groups
Support groups are formed to meet a on specific need and are focused on finding what is common between us. It is an experiential approach where group cohesion and shared knowledge are the primary goals.
Group Therapy is a different way of working to a support group setting. It focuses on more of therapeutic sharing and processing of individual and interpersonal difficulties of each member of the group. The group members and the therapists work together to support insight, compassion and change in the group and individual.
Open Dialogue is a therapeutic approach that works with the family and social system of a person seeking to understand their distress. Two therapists meet with the person and their network in a reflective space that allows all voices to be heard. Distress does not exist in isolation, within an individual, it exists with a social context and through the process of working within the social context new meanings and understandings are identified.
Supervision to individuals and groups. Supervision is an important part of spending time with other people in therapeutic, supportive or helping roles. The principles offered in psychotherapy by HUMANE clinic form the basis for a non directional and reflective supervision space for clinicians and other professionals in the field of health provision and support.
