InfinumGrowth is happy to launch Group Therapy – a space for individuals to be part of a group; to reflect upon, explore and experience patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that govern our lives.
Group Therapy experience and reflections help make meaning of and change the patterns, that may be coming in the way of leading a full and fulfilled life.
Such work in order to bring change, needs persistence and continuity in order to get effective results.
InfinumGrowth’s Group Therapy sessions are planned for every Tuesday from 13th June, 2023 onwards. The group size will be limited upto 8 participants.
To make meaningful changes in behaviour patterns, it is recommended for participants to be with the group and Psychotherapist for a minimum of 6 months.
The program is therefore, planned for every Tuesday from 13th June, 2023 to 12th December, 2023.
Individuals currently going through or having already done some sessions of one to one Counselling/Psychotherapy will also find it very useful as a next level work.
The Group Therapy program will be facilitated by Gunjan Zutshi, Certified Transactional Analyst – Psychotherapy(CTA-P).
Program Fees :
This Group Therapy program is priced at Rs.4000 per month, including GST. Each month will have 4 sessions.

Why Group Psychotherapy?
Who am I? Who am I in relationship with you? Who are we in relationship with each other?
None of us exist in isolation. Therefore, the challenges we face in our lives; be they relationship issues, feeling anxious or depressed, or, feeling stuck and confused; are an outcome of intersection of the Self, the Other and the wider Context (social-cultural-political).
The issues we face are not a sickness. Nor are they just an inner individual problem.
These are patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that we learnt, in and through our interactions with others. We formed these patterns to deal, as best as we could, with the dangers and challenges of interacting with others and the world at large.
Therefore, what better place than a group, to understand and examine these conscious and, very often, unconscious patterns; and work to change them because they are no longer effective or helpful.
Microcosm of the group holds patterns of macrocosm and offers ways of working through these patterns in the safety and containment provided in the group.
While individual therapy offers a very valuable space to address the issues one is facing and find answers, it deprives one of the intersections and dynamism of working with others in the here and now; to see how implicit memories and archaic ways of relating may be re-enacted within the group.
This then provides opportunities and safety of the contained environment of the group, in which to experiment with new behaviours, attitudes and relationships. It also offers space to build our capacity to reflect, wonder and be curious as we come face to face with diversity and differentness of other group members and what that means for us and the group.
Group Psychotherapy works on the premise that analysis of relationships within the group, as they emerge in the here and now of the group’s life, are the objects of attention of the group. All group members reflect together and make meaning of what is happening and what that means for the individual and the group.
This is a long term intensive interactional group, where members bring their full selves in; to engage with other members of the group. The primary task of the group is to use what emerges in this engagement; to reflect, explore, confront and deepen awareness of one’s own patterns; and experiment with new ways of being. The long term focus allows members to move away from problem solving for specific issues, in order to focus on changing deep aspects of ones personality.
What this group is not
It’s not a supervision or training group and not a place for learning concepts. It’s not a support group where members come and share and others listen empathically.
It’s also not a group where 1-to-1 therapy happens in the group.
