Person-centred encounter groups provide an environment where you are supported and encouraged to examine your feelings and actions in relation to yourself and others.
This is a unique way to meet others. There is no agenda, and nobody is in charge. Each unstructured meeting takes its own course, with all participants treated as equals, just like an encounter would in person-centred therapy. Each individual brings the attitudes of caring, acceptance and trust. Each can therefore provide the therapeutic conditions for any other. The group becomes the therapist, and all can grow in the presence of the group.
The focus is the experiences and responses of those present. It is about sharing the subjectivity of our experience in the here-and-now. How open can you be among others? How receptive can you be the openness of others?
