My thoughts on group counselling

I have no specific goal for a particular group and I sincerely want it to develop its own directions. There are times when, because of some personal bias or anxiety. I have had a specific goal for a group. When this has happened, either the group has carefully defeated that goal or has spent enough time dealing with me that I have truly regretted having had a specific goal in mind. I have stressed the negative aspects of specific goals because, at the same time I hope to avoid these, I also hope that there will be some sort of process movement in the group and I even think that I can predict some of the probable generalised directions, but not any specific direction. For me this is a very important difference. The group will move, of this I am confident, but it is presumptuous of me to think that I can or should direct that movement toward a specific goal.
