Group therapy

Groups consist of about five to fifteen participants. Meetings are usually once a week. Some people attend individual and group therapy at the same time, others join a therapy group only.

Group therapy has some advantages that individual therapy cannot provide. Experience shows that participants benefit greatly from being heard and listening to people experiencing the same difficulties as them. Sharing in a group helps one to break out of one's own vicious circle. Seeing how other people cope with problems and make positive changes can open up a whole range of strategies for facing your own concerns.

Is group therapy enough?

Many people find it helpful to participate in both group and individual psychotherapy. Participating in both types of psychotherapy can increase your chances of making valuable, lasting changes. If you've participated in individual psychotherapy and your progress has stalled, joining a group can be very helpful.

Group members will start out as strangers, but in a short time you will likely see them as a valuable and reliable source of support!
