Thanks to everyone who came along today. It’s great to see regular members, as ever, but also great to see a new member today.
When I set up the group my aim was to balance talking about problems against having fun. I feel today’s group was a perfect example of that. Lots of laughter, but also touching on personal issues. I hope this resulted in lifting people’s mood, and also made people feel better for sharing their problems with others.
I’m still torn between hiring a room, which can be clinical and overly formal at times, and of remaining in the cafe. The cafe brings a sense of sociability and liveliness to the group. I have recently reflected on whether a room sets the seen for a classical group therapy setting, which is not really the service me provide. The benefit of hiring a room is that their is more confidentiality, so I can see this from both sides. Will hopefully discuss this with group members soon to assess what to do.
We played darts, and pool afterwards, which was great fun.
Thanks to everyone who came along.
