Thank you for all your help and support

I am more confident at managing group dynamics

"My groups operate very differently, I feel I now know my group much more because we talk more, they also seem to get to know each other quicker, it feels as if every-one can support each other better"

"I control the group better and set ground rules for discussion and exercise works better"

"Patients more talkative/expressive/willing to share and they seem more relaxed with a good rapport with each other and staff"

"Attendance has increased - more individuals completing the programme"

"I am more confident at managing group dynamics, making them more inclusive and not allowing anyone to dominate"
