Group therapy involves one or more psychotherapists who lead a group of between 5 to 15 people. Typically, groups meet for an hour or two each week. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only.
Many groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, panic disorder, social anxiety, chronic pain or substance abuse. Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, helping people deal with a range of issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness and low self-esteem.
Groups often help those who have experienced loss, whether it be a spouse, a child or someone who has died through illness or suicide.
Therapedia has a beautiful large room to accommodate groups. If you are interested in becoming part of a group or wish to discuss the possibility please contact us or arrange an initial consultation to discuss how a group setting can meet your issues and needs.
