Group Guidance


Group guidance involves individual clients working together with a qualified guidance counsellor facilitating the session.  Often, in a group context, people share quite a lot about their individual experiences, their career aspirations, together with their challenges and achievements.  Therefore, it is very important that the space/environment is conducive to the aims and objectives of the group work.



When delivering group guidance in an outreach centre, it is important to:-

  • Identify a suitable room or space;
  • Ensure the room is Comfortable with chairs informally laid out in a circle or semi-circle if possible;
  • ensure the same criteria as for one-to-one guidance in terms of quietness, confidentiality and privacy;
  • It may sometimes be necessary to be flexible and adaptable in Centres where there are space constraints.




Make a list of the environmental factors which are important for a group guidance session.
