ARCHIVE Clinic – Group Treatments

The work we do is a shared journey of self discovery. Group treatment may be a useful format to better understand yourself in relation to others. SALTIE offers two group formats: Workshops and Therapy.


In SALTIEs workshops, facilitators provide information on a particular topic. Workshops can be a single session or a short series of sessions. Our workshops do not require sharing of personal information or clinical issues.


Description: Mindfulness is a state of non-judgmental conscious awareness of the present. This course is run as a small group (capped at 6 people) and aims to be practical in nature. It will involve a short introduction to mindfulness and then guided practice of some mindfulness techniques:

  • Awareness of breath meditation
  • Body scan
  • Tuning into your senses
  • Morning intention.

Group therapy

We look forward to our Group Therapy program returning in 2021, once COVID restrictions ease. Register your interests with us if you would like us to keep you updated.

THERAPY groups consist of 6-10 people meeting on a weekly basis over a few months. Participants share aspects of their life that they are wanting to address. Group members provide feedback to one another by expressing their feelings about what someone says or does in group. People can try out new behaviours in a safe environment that they can then try out in their other relationships.

What would I get out of group treatment?

Knowledge: Useful information is shared in group treatment.

Support: You discover that you are not alone. It is nice to talk to others who are going through similar things.

Problem solving: You can hear what others have tried and what has worked for them, and what has not. You are able to offer the other members feedback based on your experiences as well.

Awareness: You’ll get the opportunity to receive feedback from others in a supportive and caring environment and discover more about yourself.
