Cult Recovery: Being involved in a cult can be more common than most people realise. Some people are born into a family or group that has ideals and practices that lead to isolation, unusual beliefs and fear of those outside the group. A cult can be a group or two or more.

Counselling Approach: As cults have strong negative views of those outside the cult, I approach therapy with a recovery and solution focused – problem solving style. If there is trauma associated with involvement then treating the trauma is important.  If there is lack of social confidence after leaving the group, then developing a confidence is of primary importance.  If there are other family members involved it may lead to the need for relationship advice.  Of course safety is of primary importance, but many people are involved in cult-like groups without every being in danger. In some ways positive psychology and life coaching strategies can aid self development.
