FREE GROUP THERAPY
For Children and Young People aged 0-25* in Swindon (*18-25 for those with SEND)

If you are not feeling yourself, having conversations with others who are going through similar experiences often helps.

Group therapy is a type of talking therapy where at least one practitioner works with a group of people who share similar feelings or experiences.

We offer a range of group therapy sessions to help you deal with different issues, like anxiety, anger, self-esteem, and resilience. 

Groups are delivered online and face to face.  

Shared Experiences and Support

When you contact BeU Swindon for the first time, one of our therapeutic consultants will talk to you about your situation and how you feel.

If you and your consultant decide that group therapy is for you, you will be invited to join the groups that you could benefit the most from.

Group therapy is delivered in a safe and non-judgemental environment where you can listen and speak to others who are experiencing similar feelings.

A lead practitioner conducts the session, but most of the talking comes from people in the group.

The group practitioner encourages people to have positive conversations about their progress and helps them identify their strengths and discover how to apply them to overcome barriers or difficulties.

During group sessions you will be able to learn from others; what they feel, how they are finding ways to cope, what helps them feel happier, etc.

In a support session you will be able to explain your story, in your own words.


Your therapeutic consultant will listen and help you understand the root of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.


They will also will help you discover your strengths and how to apply them to overcome any difficulties you may encounter.

If you don’t feel ready to speak in public, it’s OK to just listen to what others have to say

You can also share your story with people who will not judge you, because they understand what you are going through.

If you don’t feel ready to speak, it’s OK to just listen to what others have to say.

You will be encouraged to access resources and apply strategies outside of group sessions to help you to achieve your goals, manage your mood, and feel better.

If you need more help outside of the group sessions, you will be supported to access wider support offered by BeU Swindon, like one-to-one support, and other local specialist support services.

Talking To Others Like You Can Help

Sharing similar feelings and experiences with a group of people can help relieve pain, guilt, and stress. 

Listening to others who have been in your shoes can help you discover that you are not alone and that it’s possible to feel better. 

Your group is also a safe space for you to talk without feeling judged or criticised. The other group members understand what you are going through, they accept you and are there to support you. 

People in group sessions are normally at different stages. This means you can learn from those who are feeling better, but you can also help others by sharing your progress and the things that work for you.
