The aim of this discussion is to raise awareness, de-mystify and examine the courage required to face oneself in counselling/psychotherapy (therapy) and the likely components of that challenging journey.  A look at what therapy is and is not, embracing the idea that it can be like somone holding a mirror up, and seeing oneself, warts 'n all. 

Due to the sensitive nature of the discussion, an ethos of confidentiality, support and non-judgementalness will be very strongly encouraged.  Some of the discussion will be in smaller groups.
