Group Counseling & Psychotherapy
Go Farther Together
We spend most of our lives in groups. We live in groups, work in groups, learn in groups, and play in groups. Throughout our lives we are part of communities, classes, families, teams, clubs, companies, and many other types of groups. We often identify ourselves through our memberships in groups like our professions, neighborhoods, communities, or organizations. If so much of our experience as humans happens in groups, why shouldn't we grow, reflect, and heal in groups too?
Group psychotherapy is a specialized form of counseling where a small group of people meet together regularly with the help of a therapist. It offers a place share your struggles, get feedback from others, and learn more about yourself. Group gives members a unique opportunity to learn more about patterns in relationships and experiment with new skills and changes. It offers a chance to harness the power of relationships, generosity, altruism, belongingness, empathy, and connection.
Many people worry that group may be intimidating, scary, or anxiety provoking; and frankly, it can be, but that is all the more reason to give it a try. Most group members start group feeling this way, but the group and therapist work quickly to make all members feel included and connected. Others worry that therapy in a group means they won't get as much time to do the work. In reality, most people find that group offers a chance for faster and more efficient growth as you can benefit from not only your experience but from others' experiences and feedback as well.
Group therapy is well researched and effective in addressing many problems. In fact, in many cases, it can work even better than individual therapy. If you find yourself struggling with loneliness, stress, difficult life circumstances, depression, anxiety, or trouble in relationships, group may be right for you.
