What is Group Therapy?
Group psychotherapy is a highly effective and unique experience in which a small number of individuals meet weekly under the guidance of a professionally trained group therapist to help themselves and one another.
Group therapy can be one of the most compelling forums for self-discovery. Feedback and support from the group can foster a sense of acceptance and reduce feelings of isolation. It can also give you the opportunity to make significant changes in your life by providing a confidential place to share feelings, understand how you’re experienced by others and practice new behaviors.
