Goals of the group

The space where we can allow yourself to over-think than pushing it away (we know by now ""hey don't think about it" or "you are over-thinking, stop" never goes well with our thinking juices!) and understand what is our mind really trying to convey, avoid, distract or notice under the disguise of overthinking. At the core of overthinking, is the feelings of anxiety which might form a cloud of overthinking but what is this big cloud really blurring/trying to speak?

We don't intend on building a 5 step formula to say ""bye bye"" to overthinking because the core part of understanding the way our mind works is not to avoid but to understand what the purpose of these processes is and how we can learn to co-exist with this part of us. We will be exploring different ways as a group to cope with the cloud of overthinking that mostly comes in the way of making decisions. Individuals experiencing similar feelings and situations can offer support to each other.

Who is the group for?

The group is designed for anyone who feels a lot, thinks a lot and wishes to bring their unique ways of thinking in a collective space to work through the process of overthinking. The objective is to develop a healthy relationship by understanding the possible reasons why our mind goes down the spiral and making meaning out of it than "thought stopping."

    Overthinking and insomnia

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

    Relationships getting affected

  • I'd give it a 10 [out of 10]. I'm surprised at how vulnerable and open everyone was in the first session.
