Sometimes, group relationships can become strained.

Whether professional, platonic, social or intimate, group members can end up with arguments and experience uncooperative – or even provoking – behaviour amongst group members.

This would be when meeting with Counsellor Dean Richardson MNCS(Acc) MBACP(Accred) as a group counsellor could be helpful to your group.

Support to work through difficulties & conflicts, and to put into place plans to resolve disputes, both current and future..

Group Counselling Services Summary.

Suitable for…

Suitable for group of related adults: work related, socially related, polyamorous relationship groups etc. When your group is in conflict, group counselling can help you all identify what’s getting in the way of you being able to work out the problems together.

}

Open Ended

Your group’s relationship is not limited by time, so neither is group counselling. We’ll begin by clearly identifying the group’s problems. Then ~ if you choose ~ you can either work on agreed problems with no further counselling, or can work together, as a group, with the counsellor in weekly sessions.

Weekly

Effective group counselling is weekly ~ any more time between sessions can weaken the effectiveness. Every member of the group is encouraged to attend all sessions until the group’s work is done (or done “enough” to bring counselling to an end).

No Waiting

NHS and charitable counselling services often have a long waiting list. As a private counsellor, Dean Richardson often has appointments so that you can begin as quickly as next week. He also has a limited number of low-fee cases too. You can afford to go private…

Why choose Group Counselling?

We all work and live in groups:

  • Teams at work.
  • Family relationships.
  • Flat mates.
  • Neighbours.
  • Giving time to Charity.
  • Business Relationships.
  • Polyamorous groups.
  • Kink/sexual groups.

Sometimes, these groups work well together, and sometimes they don’t.

It’s when these groups are not working well together, but they have to work well, that you’d consider Group Counselling from Dean Richardson MNCS(Acc) MBACP(Accred).

Group Counselling allows the group to:-

  • Collectively identify the group’s problems and behavioural triggers.
  • Work together at defining the group’s objectives & rules.
  • Support each other in resolving the group’s problems.
  • Assist each other when relationships within the group are strained, failing or struggling.

Group Counselling to work Successfully in Teams Once MoreAs an ex-IBM (North Harbour) Group Facilitator, and using methodologies from Family Systems/Milan Associates systemic counselling, plus a Foulkesian group analysis, approach to group counselling, Dean Richardson MNCS(Acc) MBACP(Accred) becomes a (temporary!) member of the group, conducting the group in finding its own way forward when moving forward before wasn’t possible before.

Working weekly in sessions of 90 minutes a time, and at Dean’s Widley & Purbrook Offices, Dean’s aim is to become redundant, eventually exiting from the group leaving the group able to work successfully through matters – existing  and new – on their own.

About Counsellor Dean Richardson MNCS(Acc) MBACP(Accred)

You could choose any counsellor.

But… when you consider that this is probably the most personal and the most vulnerable that you're going to be with someone, you'd choose someone you'd trust, who demonstrated adept professional skills, who spoke plain English (who's happy to use as much swearing/plain language as you use yourself), and who works in partnership with his clients (he doesn't sit in silence, or just says "Hmm" for 50 minutes)

…then you'd choose to meet with Dean Richardson.

Seems a simple choice, really.

How my counselling fees work

Unlike NHS services (where you have already paid through NI taxation), private counselling will cost you some money.

The fee shown is per individual group member per weekly session (whether attended or missed). Each group session lasts 90 minutes. Groups are a minimum of 4 members and a maximum of 8 members.

My fees become due on the day of our weekly session. You may pay for your session fees online (eg bank transfer, credit/debit card payment) or in person (cash, cheque [made out to Dean Richardson], credit/debit card).

In some circumstances, my fees may be negotiable if some members of the group have an income that makes private counselling a struggle to afford. This is on a case-by-case basis and may be discussed with the whole group (e.g. how does the group manage with different people paying different amounts). I may not have any low-fees spaces available, though. Please ask…

Appointments are weekly.

Our work lasts for as long (or as brief) as we both think it's helpful. No more, no less.

Your choice of weekly day/time remains for as long as we need.

You pay for sessions weekly (cash, cheque [made out to Dean Richardson], credit card, debit card).

To end counselling: it's helpful to bring up thoughts about ending rather than saying one day: "I'm ending today". Sometimes the desire to end can be a mask for something else: being afraid, unable to be angry, acting out abandonment etc. We'll talk it through to plan our ending.
