Group Therapy

Throughout the year we offer different group therapies for survivors. On this page you can find out more information about our current groups. To join our waiting list for our next group, please see below.

Somatic Body Mapping

The Somatic Body Mapping Group is an art and body focused group therapy. It allows participants to begin regaining trust and joy in their bodies and creatively explore who they are becoming on their healing journey. You do not need to have any art making skills, only an interest in exploring your creativity.  


This group started in September 2023. A new group will be announced in 2024.

If you would like to join our waiting list, please get in touch via the referral form below.  

  • Running from: Tuesday 26th September 2023 until the 21st November 2023 with a 1 week break in the middle. 8 sessions in total.
  • Session frequency: Weekly on Tuesdays from 11am-1:15pm.
  • Open to: Anyone identifying as a woman.

Key Information

It is open to anybody identifying as woman, whether cis-, trans or other. The group is designed for participants who have already started their healing journey and would like to further deepen their connection with themselves. In order to join the group, we ask that you have had 1-1 trauma specific counselling before and will also be attending individual counselling sessions alongside the group. These do not have to be with Kinergy.

The facilitators will guide group members through a series of interactive, mindful and creative exercises leading to the making of one’s personal body map. This involves tracing your body outline and filling it with images and symbols that express your inner nature and who you are becoming on your healing journey.

This is a small, closed group of 4 participants and two facilitators

The group runs over 8 consecutive weeks with one week’s break in the middle. Each weekly session is 2h and 15minutes long.

The group runs twice a year. We don’t set regular dates as they depend on the availability of our facilitators. 

Yes, we have got a waiting list for this group. In order to join, please fill out our Kinergy referral form. You will have the option to tick ‘groups’ and then specify which group you would like to attend.

Eco-Therapy

A 12-week trauma informed eco-therapy group for survivors of sexual abuse. A relaxed and supportive space to improve wellbeing through connection and creativity in nature. 

Being in nature can be calming and grounding and it has been proven to improve wellbeing, boost confidence and reduce trauma symptoms. Working in a group outdoors can help us connect with ourselves and others and we can learn from nature too.

We can use creativity to explore our feelings, express ourselves safely and reconnect with our own sense of agency. Being surrounded by nature can feel more comfortable than working in a therapy room and group members are encouraged to take part in a way that feels right for them. 


The first group will start in January 2024.

If you are interested in taking part, please email contact@kinergy.org.uk.

  • Running from: January 2024
  • Session frequency: Weekly on Tuesdays from 12pm-2:30pm.
  • Open to: All genders
  • Where: Grow Wilder, BS16 1EL

Key Information

It is open to adults of any gender but we ask that you are not currently accessing any other therapy. The facility is wheelchair accessible. 

The facilitators will guide group members through various outdoor activities focused on improving wellbeing through connection and creativity in nature. Group members will be encouraged to take part in a way that feels right for them. 

This is a small, closed group of 6 participants and two facilitators

The group runs over 12 weeks. Each weekly session is 2h and 30minutes long.
