Goals of the group

Familial ties are the first relationship we form followed by friendship, romantic, work and other relationships later in life; thus, former leaves an impact and affects our capacity to form other relationships as well.
Therfore, this group is for people who want to know more about themselves and the ways in which they find themselves relating to other people. This is also a space to discuss conflicts, tough situations and boundaries.

Who is it for?

This group is for anyone who wants to work towards resolving familial conflicts, build healthy relationships and at the same time taking care of themselves and their boundaries. In this space you have permission to speak up against family members that try to keep you in roles and boxes you have already outgrown.

What will we talk about?

• Parent-child issues or sibling conflicts or extended family
• Tough situations and relationships
• Managing the strong emotions that come up
• Setting clear boundaries and sticking with them
• Reducing stress and overwhelm
• Dealing with loss, anger, and other emotions
• How to cultivate calm and care for ourselves, despite chaos

  • My therapist recommended group therapy and I had been lookout for a group that was a fit. So glad I found SoulUp and signed up. This group has helped me more than therapy for some things.

What happens in a group session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Conversation. Your facilitator will guide the group in a free-flowing conversation—with the goal of sharing openly, talking honestly, and deep emotional connection.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am i going to get out of this?

Participants say that they feel heard, understood, more in control, and a feeling that you’ve got people rooting for you. By talking about your emotions and what's going on in your life, you'll realise that you're not alone and get ideas for how to improve your situation.
