Group Therapy

A therapy group usually consists of 3-8 people who meet on a weekly or biweekly basis with a therapist who serves as a facilitator. Anything mentioned during group sessions is confidential and group members agree to protect each other’s identity outside of the group.

The environment of the group therapy provides a safe way to express your issues as group members learn to actively listen to each other, entrust the group with their feelings and respond to each other with empathy, respect and compassion. Their struggles are normalized as they relate to similar experiences and feelings shared by other group members, they feel less alone as they develop a sense of belonging to a larger entity and learn to ask for and accept support from others. Through committed attendance of the group meetings, members add structure, purpose and responsibility to their lives and by helping resolve problems of others they inadvertently help themselves. In the word of Ralph Waldo Emerson: “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”
