The power of a group

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy where a trained therapist facilitates a group of individuals to work together to address their emotional and psychological issues. The group setting provides a supportive environment where members can connect with others, practice new social skills, and receive feedback and support.

Growth, motivation and accountability

Group therapy has several benefits for individuals with mental health issues. It offers a supportive environment where people can connect with others who are going through similar experiences, reducing feelings of isolation and providing a sense of belonging. In addition, it allows for the practice of new social skills and receiving feedback in a safe and non-judgmental environment, improving interpersonal relationships and increasing self-awareness. Group therapy is often more cost-effective than individual therapy and provides accountability and motivation, as individuals are encouraged to support each other in achieving their goals.

Intensive & practical

Periodically PBH runs intensive workshops on specific topics such as building better self-esteem, and practical parenting on developing a healthy relationship with money. To find out about our latest workshops please sign up to our mailing list.

Some common questions about groups and workshops

Do you accept medical insurance?

We do not accept medical insurance.  In some instances, clients are able to reclaim the cost of our services from theirinsurance companies but we do not deal with insurance companies directly. If additional information is required by a client in making an insurance claim an administration fee is payable.

Do you provide confidential support?

Discretion and confidentiality are our bywords. We protect our clients confidentiality rigorously and have processes in place to ensure that information is safeguarded. We pride ourselves on our discretion. Our flexible approach to support means that we can often work with clients in a way which suits their needs for privacy.

Where are you based?

We operate from two offices, one in London and one in Guildford, Surrey. However, we provide support to clients across the world through case management, coaching and therapy. This may include remote or online support or it may mean our coaches travelling to clients in their home country.

Does PBH follow a particular treatment approach or modality?

The way we support clients is flexible as we recognise that different people are at different stages in their road to wellness. We do not advocate or prescribe a particular modality but do recognise that clients who are engaged in self-destructive behaviours often need to be supported to stop or minimise the behaviour in order for their recovery to progress. However, we also acknowledge that this is not a linear process and as such lapses are frequent and we are adept at dealing with them.

Are you CQC registered?

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) oversees clinical and medical support in the UK. Portobello Behavioural Health doesn't provide clinical or medical services and so we are not CQC registered. Therapists are registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Heath and Care Professions Council or a similar accrediting body. Case management and coaching are unregulated, non-clinical services. As such there is no governing or regulatory body that oversees this work. Any concerns, issues or complaints
