Humantold Group Workshops
Being a human is hard work, and no one is meant to do it alone. We offer Group Workshops for individuals looking to share their personal struggles and experiences with like-minded people in a supportive environment that is guided by a professional therapist. These workshops cultivate connection, empathy, and emotional support through group learning around a specific topic. Together, attendees learn new skills that help them navigate the human condition.
Group workshops are free. If you would like to contribute to our ongoing work, donations will be accepted.
You may sign up for just one group workshop or the whole series. If you miss the first week of a series, you are still welcome to attend the following weeks.
People Pleasing - How to Break the Cycle and Reclaim Your Energy
This group is for those of us who chronically say “yes” when all we want is to say “no.” For those who may feel guilty setting boundaries and limits with friends, family and acquaintances, sometimes even strangers. For those who are often left feeling like there is no time to take care of ourselves, let alone enjoy our lives.People pleasing can compromise the way we view ourselves and the way we engage in our relationships. It can leave us feeling resentful, frustrated, and exhausted. We may feel an overwhelming need to put others before us for fear of letting others down.With the guidance of group facilitators and support of fellow group members, we will explore why and how people pleasing tendencies may form, how they affect us, and practice skills to break free of the habit. We will explore how the practice of mindfulness can help manage anxieties about relationships and confrontation, and challenge fears that can feed relationship insecurities. Everyone has the tools to be in a healthy relationship and have a healthy view of themselves!
