Meeting Ourselves — an ongoing therapy group for men

Meeting Ourselves is an ongoing therapy group for men in London which started in January 2023.

We are living in a time of immense instability, transition and change of identities. Who we are and how we experience and recognise ourselves as men is a key part of this.

Working in a group offers us a community of belonging, collaboration and learning, as we do our own work, and witness and engage with others doing theirs. In the group we can take risks, experiment, and practise and grow trust. In the process we can help each other to heal, develop, and become stronger. As we meet each other, we also meet ourselves.

Through this, over time, we can form a view of ourselves and a way of life that is truthful, compassionate and meaningful. We can evolve, individually and collectively, by becoming aware of and ending old attitudes and patterns of being, thinking, feeling and behaving that are redundant and no longer work for us; and through shaping and establishing new attitudes and patterns of living and communicating that support us to thrive and grow.

I am running this men’s group to provide a space to help us to deepen our awareness, experience and satisfaction; to explore and form new perspectives on ourselves, our lives and our relationships; and to become the men we are, not the men we think we should be.

How to join the group

The group is open to new members until we reach a maximum of eight. If you think you would like to join the group, please email me to arrange a free initial meeting, to explore what you would like for yourself in joining, and to discuss the practicalities. 

Dates and times

We meet monthly on eleven Sundays through the year, barring August.

The dates for 2024 are: 7 January, 4 February, 10 March, 7 April, 12 May, 9 June, 7 July, 15 September, 13 October, 10 November, 8 December.

The days run from 10:00 – 17:00, with a lunch break, morning coffee break and short afternoon tea break. Longer days together give us time to slow down, engage with and immerse ourselves in the work, in contact with ourselves and each other.

Fee and commitment

The fee for the group is £100 per day paid at the start of each month. The group comprises a maximum of eight participants and there is a minimum commitment of seven sessions. I ask that participants prioritise attending the group as part of the commitment. I require payment for any missed sessions as I cannot fill someone’s place in the group.

Venue

Homa, 26 Lloyd Baker Street, London WC1X 9AW. Homa is between Angel and King’s Cross tube stations.
