Group Therapy

GROUP THERAPY is a form of therapy where individuals can experience a safe place to connect, relate, learn, and change in an interpersonal environment. Groups typically have anywhere from 5-12 members, depending on the nature and purpose of the group. Group therapy can be particularly helpful when mental health concerns interfere with relationships.

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

run by Derek Griner and Rachel Arnold

Tuesdays 4:30pm-6:00pm in our Orem Office

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) groups use a model of therapy designed to help with a broad range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, difficulties with self-worth, and perfectionism. This group is a combination of structured teaching, experiential exercises (practicing in session together), and discussing your experiences as a group. Derek Griner and Rachel Arnold, along with a team of others, wrote and developed the group protocol that will be used in this group. They both have extensive training in CFT and are excited to run this together.

The group will have about 10 members. The ideal candidate for this group is someone who is open to experiential exercises, good at listening, and really wants to work on self-defeating critical thoughts. This group has been particularly helpful for clients dealing with a number of issues including depression, anxiety, and perfectionistic ways of living.

The CFT group is planning to launch on Tuesday, September 6 and will run through mid-December. If you are interested in joining the next group, please call our office at (801) 224-2313 to inquire about availability.
