Group Therapy

While it is true that each of us is individually unique and may have different circumstances, none are alone in our day-to-day struggles. For many people, group therapy can be more powerful than individual therapy sessions.  It brings upon a sense of belonging knowing you are not alone in your journey. While listening to others, it can help to offer and gain inspiration and encouragement from each other

For individuals dealing with depression, social anxiety and life transitions, a group therapy session can be quite uplifting to walk away from. Sharing experiences with others, who may also be in the same boat, can help overcome issues in a much positive mindset and reduce isolation. In addition to strengthening your relationships, social skills and reducing isolation, finding your voice within a group therapy session can be invigorating and empowering.

While your counsellor facilitates the therapeutic process of the group, under the leadership of a trained group therapist can help you to reflect on your individual goals.

Groups typically consist of six to twelve people and meet ups can weekly, fortnightly monthly for 90 minutes. If you are still in doubt whether it’s right for you, get in touch with us and our therapist can discuss therapy options with you.
