    Notes: The above information may change from time to time, and is shared with you to understand the background of where the support group comes from.
  • When was your support group founded? How has the journey been since then?
    The group’s founding story is to bridge the gap between need for therapy and affordability of individual therapy, as well as the lack of group therapy spaces in India to better understand oneself and one’s emotional distress in the context of their relationships with others.
  • Who is your support group for?
    This group is for people looking for a therapy group, and not a typical support group. It is designed for anyone looking to work through their emotional distress interpersonally. With other people. It is not narrow in its focus. Therefore it is not catering to one section of people, rather it is open to anyone looking to better understand themselves and their concerns through their relationships with other people in the group setting in a moderated way with the presence of a group therapist.
  • Explain your group's approach towards helping a person's mental health care.
    This space endeavours to help understand your experiences better by bringing your difficulties to the group, finding connection with others with similar or different experiences and making meaning collectively in a safe space.
  • What is your group's approach towards professional mental health care interventions?
    The group is a therapy group rooted in group analytic principles, it is agendal-ess and hopes to meet people where they are. The only ask is to bring oneself to the group space as honestly as possible, and it is through one’s own sharings and others’ sharings that hopefully people can know themselves more, find belonging and also be supportively challenged in their perspectives so one can be best supported.
  • What conversations is your support group not equipped to support?
    The group can support most conversations that come up, if the group is limited in helping with certain conversations, appropriate referrals are made.
  • How does one sign up? What’s the coordination process like?

    Write to us and we’ll guide you through the sign up process.

    Note: There is a detailed intake process of multiple rounds, before you can join the group meetings. Not all participants who sign up may be allowed to enter the group.

  • Walk us through the average format of your group session.
    Just as with individual therapy, there is no format to this group therapy space. It is not regimented, but rather a space where you bring yourselves and it is through relating to the members of the group that something rich emerges that is helpful.
  • What are your home rules/values?
    Confidentiality, regularity and honesty
  • What do you hope for participants in your group to take back with them after a session?
    Just like with individual therapy, group therapy cannot have quantifiable or definite takeaways after each session. It is a process which requires engagement over time. The hope is that it lends support, a feeling of belonging and allowing oneself to be challenged when thinking about emotional difficulties!
