Support groups



Group therapy is a unique form of therapy where people who are experiencing similar challenges come together to share their experiences. This form of support can benefit individual group members as they navigate their lives following a road incident and support others who understand.

We make sure to maintain a safe environment that is conducive both for sharing and accepting each other, promoting growth, trust, a sense of value and respect.

We run various groups at Amber Community, including the Art Therapy Group and Road Trauma Support Group.
