Why We Love Group Therapy


We know the decision to start therapy can be difficult. We also know the decision whether or not to start with individual therapy or try group therapy is difficult. We love both individual and group therapy for different reasons. Since we have 3 amazing groups starting this summer, We thought it might be helpful to share why now might be a good time to start group therapy. 


Here are 8 reasons why we love group therapy: 


1. Cost-Effective

Group therapy tends to be more affordable than individual therapy since the cost is shared among group members. This makes it a more accessible option for individuals who may have financial constraints. And you have a counselor who is highly trained teaching their favorite skills and techniques. 

2. Confidentiality

Group therapy offers a safe place to share with other by creating a safe environment for individuals to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences without fear of judgment or negative consequences. 

3. Safe Environment

Group therapy offers allows individuals to explore sensitive topics, and express feelings freely, knowing that the information shared will not be used against them.

Group therapy offers an opportunity to receive constructive feedback from others on their negative thinking patterns, offer alternative perspectives, and allows group members to learn from each other. 

4. Learn from Others

Group therapy offers the opportunity to connect with others and hear their personal stories and life experiences. It’s helpful to hear from others who have been through similar experiences and pass that knowledge onto others. 

5. Self-Discovery

Through group therapy, participants can gain deeper insights into their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Observing others’ experiences and receiving feedback from the group can help individuals identify patterns, triggers, and unconscious motivations, leading to increased self-awareness and personal growth.

6. Opportunity to Practice New Skills

The skills learned and practiced in group therapy can often be transferred to various real-life situations. Participants have the opportunity to apply their new coping strategies, communication skills, and problem-solving techniques in their relationships, work, and other areas of life.

7. Accountability

The group dynamic also promotes accountability as individuals set goals and report their progress to the group. Group members can provide real-time feedback and support as personal growth is achieved. 

8. Create a Sense of Belonging

The camaraderie and support within a group can be empowering and uplifting. Participants can offer encouragement, inspiration, and motivation to one another, fostering a sense of community and connection.

It is important to note that while group therapy can be highly beneficial, individual circumstances and preferences may vary. We’re offering a FREE 15-minute session with the therapist leading each group to determine if group therapy will be right for you or your child.
