About GAP

Group Analytic Practice (GAP) provides counselling, psychotherapy, group psychotherapy and organisational consultancy services.  Our speciality is group work and a group lens informs all the work we do, be it therapeutic or organisational.  We work with individuals and groups, on a confidential basis, to develop awareness and strategies to overcome difficulties in their lives and support them in their workplaces. We aim to support people to get the most out of life and work.

GAP was founded in 1994 by a number of Group Analysts. The Practice is now managed by a Director Group who take great care in the management of referrals and the running of the Practice..

Within the practice we respect individual diversity as a cornerstone of the work we do and welcome all regardless of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, age or other characteristics.
