GROUP THERAPY

 

 

 

 

 

Group therapy, like individual therapy, is intended to help people who would like to improve their ability to cope with difficulties and problems in their lives. But, while in individual therapy the client meet s with only one person (the therapist), in group therapy the meeting is with a small group of people who are looking to work on somewhat similar emotional issues.
The aim of group therapy is to help the clients cope with emotional difficulties and to encourage the personal development of the participants in the group. The therapist chooses the candidates for the group who can benefit from group therapy and those who may have a useful influence on other members in the group.

Our groups are specially designed to help with specific problems. All groups are supportive, educational, and aimed at building coping skills. There is no requirement to speak up. Members are encouraged to participate at their own pace, and no one is put “on the spot”. Previous group members have found that the group therapy format helped them feel more supported, less alone, and more likely to make progress.
