Experience a life-changing journey with the Encounter group. Limited to only six individuals, this transformative 16-session program fosters a supportive environment, enabling participants to overcome challenges and embark on a path toward personal growth. By sharing experiences, offering mutual support, and embracing a safe and confidential space, this group empowers participants to deepen self-awareness, enhance interpersonal relationships, and gain invaluable perspectives. 

This group gathers people to support each other in overcoming hardships and developing a more fulfilling life. Through sharing experiences, participants offer encouragement and comfort to the other group members and receive the same in return. These interpersonal interactions allow group members to deepen their self-awareness, learn how they relate to others, and receive multiple perspectives in a safe and confidential environment.

  • Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged

  • Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue

  • Talking openly and honestly about your feelings

  • Improving skills to cope with challenges

  • Gaining a sense of empowerment, control or hope
