STAR Counselling offer a variety of groups. Before you start your counselling journey, you will be asked in your pre-allocation call if you are interested in attending these. We will also check in with you monthly by phone, email or letter and mention the groups we are running for the coming year.
These are standalone groups, separate from the groups which you would have when you are either waiting for or in therapy. The STAR-Light Steps are available once you have finished your 1:1 counselling and will give you the tools to find confidence, self-esteem, and purpose in life.
- How you judge yourself
- Self-esteem and Power of Purpose
- Relieving pressure and stress

Space to Share
This group is a male only group, designed to offer men a space to share and is part of a wider counselling approach bespoke to men.
Groups give you the opportunity to learn more about yourself, others, and the world around us. Group facilitators provide a safe environment for all group participants, and each week a different topic is taught and discussed. A range of groups run every 6 weeks. The group you attend will depend on your counselling journey. There are several that run at a variety of timeslots and days.
Sessions are either face-to-face or online, depending on your preferences and availability. The services we offer are private and confidential. We will tell you more about this when we meet for the first time.
Some of the topics we focus on include:
- Understanding of what boundaries are and how important a role boundaries play in our own personal wellbeing
- Learning what compassion is to enable you to implement compassion for yourself
- An understanding of different attachment styles and what they mean to us
- What are core beliefs? How do we understand them?
