I have recently ended the 12 week MBT group at the Mandala Centre. I found this group very helpful, more so than previous/shorter term sessions. It was a good experience of hearing others perspectives, working examples of using mentalising day to day. The regular sessions gave structure and opportunity to talk and ask questions.
I did find the earlier sessions, when the group was larger, that it was more difficult to keep on track. There were some occasions where other group members were a little confrontational which I found made it difficult to talk and it felt unsafe to talk. I did find that the facilitators were helpful + good at managing the group.
