Guilt, Shame and the Road to Freedom Group Therapy

Learn how to control unhealthy feelings through group therapy sessions

Guilt:  a feeling of worry or unhappiness that you have because you have done something wrong – Cambridge Dictionary

For those who would like to experience counselling as part of a group, we offer informal group therapy sessions.

As women, we sometimes feel excessive or unneeded feelings of guilt and shame. Life is not perfect and we sometimes blame ourselves, but sometimes these feelings are not ours to carry. These feelings can make us feel stuck, unable to tell people how we honestly feel, for fear of upsetting or affecting them.

In these sessions, we will explore how we can be kinder to ourselves, resolve unwanted emotions and move forward. We will be asking:

  • How do we move past feelings of guilt
  • What does guilt look like and how does this hold us back
  • How we learn to say No without fear
  • What it is like to constantly feel this way
  • How does shame make us feel stuck

The Women and Confidence Building course aims to help you to be more confident about your future. Women Leading Learning, a branch of the Worker’s Educational Association (WEA), runs the course.

The course is designed to help you to develop your confidence by building on your own life-skills and experiences. During the course, you will learn new and practical ways of dealing with situations that are particularly problematic.

WEA classes are friendly and supportive. You will be encouraged to work together with your fellow students and tutor. The WEA tutor will use a range of different teaching and learning methods and encourage you to be actively involved in your learning.

It is recommended that all five sessions are attended and the course runs on the following dates:
