Welcome to our group practice
Hello, my name is Roshmi and welcome to my website.
Life can be tough. It can throw us curve balls. Whilst most of us would like to stay on the positive end of the emotional spectrum, there are times when we are drawn into feelings of negativity, either about ourselves, about others, or about the world we live in. Sometimes this is due to a significant event in our lives, or sometimes because we have reached a stage where we no longer feel happy with the way our life is going.
We are a group practice on Olney High Street, offering a wide range of psychological therapies. This includes counselling, psychotherapy, arts therapies and somatic therapies. People come because they are suffering in some way. Some are stuck, others lost and confused. Many feel that circumstances or relationships have taken them so far away from being someone whom they still recognise. Often people feel 'alone' and 'empty'. Most of us want to make changes, but few are able to see these changes through.
Here at the Group Practice, we offer warm, colourful, welcoming and creative rooms in which therapy can safely happen. Within the physical space we offer emotional spaces which are safe, contained, confidential and clearly boundaried, And each therapist has their own style, quality and professional expertise to receive and hold whatever material you feel you wish to bring. Your therapist will walk alongside you as you explore new paths in your life.
By coming to therapy, you have already chosen to give yourself some space, away from the everyday things in your life. That’s already a massive step. Most people find it really hard to make that first move. Once you’re here, this becomes your space. You choose how to use it, and what to bring into it.
You can use the space to talk about your thoughts, feelings and experiences. You can explore and reflect upon your life situation. Your therapist will listen - without judging - and help you to express yourself to the fullest. Sometimes a few sessions of brief counselling is enough to help you move forward. Sometimes, longer term psychotherapy is needed to explore and work through underlying issues, like low self worth or difficuties in relationship. Within the space there is the opportunity for you to use creative techniques which can deepen the understanding of your experience. Whatever you do here, it's always your choice.
Research suggests that one of the key elements of effective therapy is the therapeutic relationship itself. I believe that without a strong working therapeutic relationship, the work of therapy is peripheral. Therefore, the therapists who work within the Group Practice work first and foremost on building a safe therapeutic relationship with you. Each therapist has their own style and expertise, but we all hold the therapeutic relationship as central to the work of therapy. In this way, coming to the Group Practice will give you not just a choice of therapies and therapists, but you can also be assured that you will be given the personal touch. No automated systems!
