What are the benefits of
1. Groups provide unity
Hearing from others with similar issues helps you to recognise that you’re not alone in having challenges, whatever these challenges may be.
2. Groups foster connection
Support groups can help you to feel less isolated while also allowing you to practice re-engaging with others and building connections.
3. Groups can help you learn about yourself
Groups allow participants the unique opportunity to see themselves through another's eyes, helping you to uncover blind spots that may be hindering your ability to overcome your problems.
4. Support groups are affordable
Support groups cost less than individual counselling sessions, and this can be incredibly helpful for individuals who are unwaged or on lower incomes.
Group therapy is a form of counselling & psychotherapy involving one or more therapist working with several people at the same time.
Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but can also be used simultaneously with one-to-one counselling sessions.
