I agree about
one on one counselling being better. Asking for money is completely unacceptable and should be reported to the group leader before you leave, in my opinion. I do know what you mean about
people monopolising meetings. A good group leader really ought to prevent that and give everyone a chance to speak equally. Groups can be a positive thing, but it doesn't sound like your one is being run well, which is most unfortunate. Whatever benefit you could get, you're not getting it. If you can afford it, I would definitely try one to one counselling.
I am sorry about
your vacation not providing a respite. Maybe for now you'd be better off with finding a new place without any memories :/ The old place will always be there, waiting for you when you're ready to go back.
As for the job you hate, any chance of being able to get another job? I know jobs are hard to come by these days, but if it's possible, I would consider looking for another job. With a better boss.
Take care. Thinking of you...
