What is group therapy?
Group therapy is your own microcosm of the real world – you get your own space to engage with others, be yourself, and unlock insights related to your personal life.
You and a group of 6-10 others will meet together with an expert group therapist that specializes in helping you reach your relational goals. Each member has a chance to share and receive feedback and support, as well as offer insights and connection to others. Everyone agrees to maintain confidentiality and respect for others in the group; that way, you can feel free to be yourself.
The therapist acts as the group guide by maintaining fairness and balance, spurring conversation, identifying patterns of communication, and highlighting important concepts. The focus of group therapy is to help you learn about yourself, practice authenticity, and apply insights from your life and from individual therapy. People who do group therapy also benefit from individual, as it offers a chance to process what happens in group and vice versa.
How can group therapy help?
Group therapy can benefit anyone, but it is most helpful for people looking to improve their social and relational skills. Other issues commonly addressed in group therapy can include:
Group therapy offers a chance to understand yourself and others on a deeper level without worrying about the social consequences. You can overcome barriers to relationship and learn to connect with complete strangers. And, you can experience the transformational healing power of the group.
Some of the benefits of group therapy include:
Gaining confidence about sharing your thoughts and feelings
Receiving support, emotional validation, and care from others
Being challenged by others in ways that help you grow
Learning to accept yourself as you learn to connect more easily with others
Rebuilding a sense of trust in others
Developing comfort with disagreement and conflict
Curiously re-evaluating beliefs about yourself and others
Improving your sense of self-worth
