Group Therapy Adelaide
A big part of the therapeutic group experience is recognising that you’re not alone and that others are struggling with very similar emotions and circumstances, so it’s helpful to have that support.
As the sense of community grows within the group new information, ideas and approaches for dealing with these thoughts and emotions will be shared and explored.
ARC’s facilitator, Kate, genuinely enjoys creating a space for authentic connections and a place of belonging and community.

I feel very happy and much more settled in the process and myself.”
I am very happy with the current people and have built good connections. I appreciate all the support and as a result, my life is much better than before. I look forward to seeing my ARC people and feeling better about having my house clean and having more good days.
