ENCOUNTER-PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT GROUPS FOR NEWCOMERS 

Dear Newcomers,

I would like to inform you that the new cycle of the Encounter/ Personal Development group would start soon. Every Friday for 10 weeks we would be meeting in my office in Agios Stefanos from 10.30-12.30, and would encounter each other in an atmosphere of trust, acceptance and confidentiality. The participants in the previous cycle had "graduated" with success; our theme to open a conversation was:" From Alienation to Personal Growth", but we as a group would agree which theme is most relevant to the participants and take it from there.

These are non-directive, experiential groups that concentrate on the here-and-now and encourage personal honesty, self-disclosure, exploration and confrontation. In personal development/encounter groups we share our deepest concerns and learn from each other in a climate of freedom and safety.

Encounter groups contribute to individual and relationship changes. But most of all they alleviate loneliness and alienation caused by the modern world and remind us that we all belong to a human race. They create a therapeutic experience by promoting interpersonal learning, installation of hope, sense of belonging, group cohesiveness, psychoeducation and altruism. By the feedback provided by the participants in the trusted environment, members learn how the world sees them and this helps their better adjustment.

I AM OFFERING THE FIRST TWO SESSIONS FREE OF CHARGE SO THAT YOU CAN SEE IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ENJOY AND WOULD LIKE TO COMMIT TO THE FULL CYCLE.

I am looking forward to starting our journey of exploration.

 For any additional information please do not hesitate to contact me (tel. 6947520063).

 Warm regards,

 Alexandra KovacevicKonstantatou
