Wednesdays @ 12.30

18-24 This group is designed to help young people who have long standing difficulties with their feelings and relationships.

Because this is a therapeutic group, we'll need you to complete one of our referral forms to join, just let us know you're interested in joining the TC42 group when asked why you'd like to refer to 42nd Street.

This group is for young people aged 18-24 able to

  • Commit for 12 months
  • Come to 42nd Street
  • Attend the group regularly

Do you..?

  • Have difficulty making or keeping relationships
  • Use drugs, alcohol or food to cope with, or numb, distressing feelings
  • Often feel empty or disconnected from the world
  • Have difficulties managing distressing or angry feelings
  • Behave impulsively, or lose control of your behaviour
  • Self-harm (this can mean different things to different people)
  • Maybe have had experience of emotional or physical abuse including sexual abuse

This group work approach will:

Give you an opportunity to talk about and share your problems with other people who experience similar feelings
Help you to think about how you and others cope with these feelings and learn new ways to manage them.
Help you to become aware and understand how these feelings and behaviours affect your relationships.
Help you to think about what you might do differently to feel better about yourself.

Allow you to take an active part in your own recovery – this can help you to have more control over your life and feel more confident. Please be aware that you must refer yourself / be referred by a professional, parent or carer to join this group. This is because it is important that group members are involved in welcoming new members and workers can discuss with you the experiences and difficulties you are experiencing before coming along to your first group session.
