Therapeutic Groups

Why Groups?

A therapeutic group is a great way to start exploring the issues that are standing in the way of living your life on your terms. It is a safe environment where you will learn, share, be supported and support others that are going through similar situations or stages in life.

Managing Stress and burnout

Stress is an issue we all face in our daily lives whether is at work, in our relationships or family, and at the societal level. Sometimes it is because we do not have healthy and/or safe boundaries in place (people pleasing, trying to prove our worth, etc) and someother times it we become stressed because we are overextending ourselves. Especially today, after living through a pandemic and with the looming of a recession, we might be taking on more than we can handle.
For that reason, we at Conscientia Counselling want to offer you a safe space where you can learn how to manage your stress and identify burnout.
This a therapeutic group provided by Tolu. For more information and for details please reach out to


A Safe Space for Black Women

The Sister Circle

Welcome, my name is Porcha, I am one of the therapists at Conscientia Counselling. I want to create a safe, inviting, and inclusive space in which Black women can gather to seek support for the various stressors they may be facing. According to Ward, Clark, & Heidrich (2009), cultural mistrust has fostered a deeper level of mental illness stigma among African Americans. I am passionate about doing my part to reduce the stigma and shame that exist about mental health especially among Black women.
The group will seek to explore the experiences of what it is like to be a Black woman in different spaces. It will offer a safe, supportive, inclusive space for women to share their experiences and promote healing while allowing Black women to connect with each other and build community in navigating various experiences.



Trauma in your Body

Sensorimotor Therapeutic Group

Emotional struggles as well as stress (especially chronic stress) can be remembered by the body. They can show up in the form of posture, sensations, physiological imbalances, gastrointestinal issues and so much more. Storing emotions and responses to those emotions in your body can be problematic. This group will teach you how to increase awareness, promote healing and how to realign your body with your mind.

Group Details


Believe it or not, your body remembers. Trauma and stress do not happen only in your mind, they happen to your body as well. This group will allow you to link what happened to you with the way in which you have kept it in your body. You will learn how your body processes information and events, how you can regulate when faced with stressful or upsetting situations, how to recognize triggers and calm your sympathetic system and how to interpret your body’s cues to perceived danger and created fears.


Free. Whenever possible, we will offer options that are accessible to most. This group is one of those options. Our intention is to help individuals access mental health support without having to worry about insurance coverage, cost or bureaucracy.
