GROUP CONCERNING CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS

The value of partnership remains unquestioned even in these complex modern times. This is why more and more people seek out support, if they experience distress, confusion and conflicts in their close relationships. Common issues that puzzle couples concern emotional and sexual distance, competition, lack of cooperation in everyday problems, bonding with one’s family of origin and disagreements over parental styles or attitudes toward raising children, to name a few.

This group offers a safe environment where participants can share their experiences and seek alternative solutions and ideas. The group offers experiential exercises, in-depth discussion and short theoretical input from the group leader on the following themes relating to close relationships: attachment and autonomy, patterns of power, relationships with each partner’s family of origin, sexuality, extramarital relationships, divorce and stepfamilies.


The group consists of 7 to 10 participants and meetings take place on a fortnightly basis.
