Abstract

Background: We describe our experience of developing Guided Self Help for patients with Functional Neurological Symptom Disorder as group therapy, delivered remotely, via Zoom. // Aims: The aims of the current study are (a) to describe how the original Queen Square Guided Self-Help (QGSH) was adapted for group therapy, and (b) to present a service evaluation of the first 8 months of running QGSH therapy groups remotely. // Methods: We carried out a review after 8 months, from 11 May 2021 until 31 January 2022. // Results: A total of 16 patients were treated in three groups. Assessing our outcomes in terms of Yalom's framework for group psychotherapy, we found that the group provided 10/11 of Yalom's therapeutic factors. Patient satisfaction was high. // Discussion: We outline for plans for further devaluation and development, including the development of a stand-alone group. // Conclusion: The group therapy format is a promising addition to our service.
