Frequently Asked Questions
What is the group structure?
This group is about giving you space to be in your own energy with no expectations. With that in mind I have designed it to flow as follows:
Mindfulness and grounding
I can’t draw a stick figure but I love creativity, can I join?
Absolutely! No previous art experience is required, just an openness to try something new and maybe play a little.
How long is the group?
Each group runs for an hour
How is this different than the other support groups I hear about?
This is not a traditional support group. The attendance will fluctuate from session to session and I will not go around to everyone and have them share. So often in our lives, and especially as caregivers, we are always giving something of ourselves. Even if we want to do so. We very rarely are allowed a space to just BE and exists. No expectations. This group is for you to set time aside for yourself to slow down for a moment and connect with yourself. You do not have to explain anything to anyone, answer any questions, share if you do not want to, or offer opinions.
