We’ve reinvented therapy... so you can reinvent your life.
Social therapy is powerful. It’s a group therapy approach that has helped thousands of people transform their lives, and it can help you.

We’re not traditional. We’ve discovered that re-igniting your ability to grow and develop with others is the cure! Social therapists are experts in leading groups that help people from all walks of life to grow continuously.
We live our lives in groups — families, friends, workplaces — but a lot of our pain is caused by feeling isolated or having difficulty in relating to the people in our lives.

We are the creators of our lives. That means we make a multitude of decisions every day — from simple to complex — about how we live. In social therapy, you’ll get help to look at your life anew, and grow in your ability to see possibilities and to create new ones.
Therapy Interrupted (in Norway): Shifting the Gaze from the Self to the Group
