You can learn these relationship skills:

- Asking for what you really want
- Having the courage to bring up difficult issues

- You work directly on how you are relating to the other group members . . . in the moment. Instead of just talking about how you relate in your life, you practice interacting with others right in the group and get help as you do.
- You get direct and honest feedback on how people are reacting to you.
- The group provides a safe place for you to try out new, healthy ways of relating to people.
- You learn how to feel your emotional responses while interacting with people
- You learn how communicate openly, clearly, and assertively.
- You learn how to access and work with the parts of you that get triggered in interactions with people, using IFS.
- You discover your ways of relating that aren’t working for you , so you can experiment with changing them in the group.
- You can share your life issues and struggles with the group.
- You see other people struggling with problems similar to yours, and through this you learn about yourself and others.
- There is a strong sense of support for each person and a warm feeling of community in the group.
They are ongoing groups which meet by videoconference, so we all can see each other, enhancing the group connection. The groups meet twice a month, and you meet with me for an individual consultation on the group every 3 months.
