These group discussions will be co-facilitated by Cindy Doire and Jordan O’Connor. Both facilitators are professional musicians and registered psychotherapists (qualifying).
Together they will host 4 group therapy sessions—creating a safe space to explore and share topics we are all facing as individuals and as a community (see session themes below.) Together we can deconstruct and discuss openly and honestly.
