What is Group Therapy?

Group therapy is a unique and powerful option for therapy. It provides a safe and non-judgmental setting to explore personal issues with others who share the same struggles and experiences as you.

What to Expect in Group Therapy

Often group therapy sessions are scheduled weekly for a fixed period of time and are between one to two hours in length. Depending on the group, the therapist will facilitate open as well as directed group discussion and sharing, lead specialized experiential activities and share helpful educational information. Therapist may also give out worksheets and other assignments to complete for the next session.

What is the Benefit of Group Therapy?

At first the process of sharing your feelings and thoughts with others in a group can be intimidating and even scary. However participants in group therapy often remark that in realizing that they aren’t alone, but rather can share and relate to the stories of others was is most powerful element of the group experience. In the company of others, you can offer and receive feedback, learn how to better communicate and offer empathy to one another. This can allow you to gain new perspectives on your situation, find strength and receive encouragement to take important steps towards positive change in your life.

Not only will you gain the support and understanding from the therapist as well as the other group members, you will see that you can also be a source of support and strength for others.

Group Therapy

Our therapist was great and she created a safe space. I didn’t think that I would like the ‘group’ part, but ultimately that is what I liked the most!

Group Therapy

I benefited greatly from participating in the group workshop. I was hesitant at first to believe I would get much out of it considering how diverse the group was but by the end of the day, I was able to find common bonds with the group and to feel comfortable telling my story and participating in theirs as well.

Sharing with a group of people brought another dimension to the journey, with deep feelings of belonging, togetherness, safety, freedom.

Group Therapy

I really enjoyed the groups a lot. I enjoyed the intimacy of the group and the therapist’s sensitivity and good humour. It made for a space that was both relaxed yet adventuresome.
