The Counselling Group's Groups

Transformations - Anger management

“Transformations” is a non-denominational skills-based anger management group that offers participants practical tools to manage their relationship with anger. This 10-session (2.5 hours per week) program presents an opportunity for participants to learn and gain greater insight into themselves. It is an interactive classroom style, primarily psycho-educational in concept and not a therapeutic format. Participants learn new ways to perceive anger, develop and practice effective communication skills and different ways to express and cope with their anger. Please note that this program is not suitable for intimate partner assault issues.

Couples Conflict Resolution

"Couples Conflict Resolution: Improving Attunement, Communication & Connection" is a four-week group workshop aimed at providing couples with a thorough understanding of relationship dynamics, skills for communication, and tools for de-escalation and connection. Weekly topics include individual activation/emotion regulation, relationship patterns and cycle identification, coping with conflict, and relationship connection/repair. By establishing an understanding of relationship dynamics, couples will work together and as a group to change patterns of escalation and hurt, and to foster deeper levels of connection. This program is facilitated by an experienced couples therapist. The Cost of the group is $250 for each couple for all 4 session.
