Find a Group

Finding a Balint group to join may require some detective work. There isn’t one place to look and the Balint Society is usually only aware of groups run by members. Look on Postgraduate Centre notice boards. Ask colleagues, GP tutors (via Deaneries), local psychotherapy departments and us. We will do our best to help you so here are some people who can be contacted:

North East England:  Jane Dammers

North West England: Ceri Dornan

London and South of England: David Watt
