Seasons for Growth support group

Seasons for Growth support group

Like the seasons, life changes:


  • Families separate
  • We lose someone we love
  • We suffer the effects of adoption
  • We become dislocated from our culture
  • Property is lost through natural disaster
  • We suffer the effects of illness or abuse
  • We experience unemployement
  • There are changes in our workplace


Seasons for Growth is an innovative education program which explores the effects of change, loss and grief. It has experienced great success in Australia and overseas.


A trained ‘Companion’ facilitates the seminar or small group program, in which participants explore feelings, memories, loss and grief in a safe and creative way.


Seasons for Growth is an education program, it does not provide counselling or therapy.

Adjusting to life’s changes

Seasons for Growth offers a range of activities to allow each individual to:

  • explore the skills needed to manage the effects of loss.
  • understand that it is normal to experience and express a range of emotions around grief and loss.
  • review present beliefs and plan for a realistic and hope-filled future.
  • develop an integrated sense of self and higher self esteem.
  • take part in a caring network of peers and adults.
  • build effective relationships with families, friends and others.

How our support group works
