Counselling Groups

Can’t Stop Overthinking?

Be a part of a group that will assist you to build practical skills to address repetitive, negative thinking linked to anxiety and depression.

The treatment used is the evidence-based approach of metacognitive therapy. It is based on the premise that our initial negative thoughts are NOT the problem, but how we respond to our thoughts is the issue.

  • When: From 1.00pm – 3.00pm Thursdays starting on 27 August 2020. This group is comprised of SIX weekly group sessions of two hours each, plus ONE follow-up session.
  • Where:             Joondalup Campus.
  • Cost: Free to all enrolled ECU students.

Do I have to attend all sessions?

Yes, this group is for those who want to make an ongoing commitment to improving their emotional well-being and decreasing emotional distress.

I don’t want to tell my whole life story to a bunch of strangers!

Don’t worry, participants will have complete choice of what they want to share. This group will be facilitated by two psychologists from ECU’s Counselling Services to ensure that all information in sessions will remain confidential.
