  • I became infatuated with video games from age 5 or 6 - all my friends played them it's the main thing we did. Through this group I was able to let out my thoughts that were bothering me and definitely understand myself better.



  • I just had a very emotional discussion. It was probably one of the most helpful things for me in years.



  • This group really made me feel like things are going to be okay. Seeing a place with so many people who understand what I'm feeling really made me feel less alone.

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.
