Strength in Numbers
Sometimes, therapy is best when when you don’t go at it alone. Group therapy can be a great solution for many people. Some benefits of group therapy include an increased sense of empowerment and control, the ability to communicate feelings more openly and honestly, and even reduced stress, anxiety, fatigue, or depression. Explore some of our group therapy sessions below.
Depression Group Therapy
Depression can strike anyone at any time, and there are multiple ways to cope. One method may be to attend a group therapy session that specializes in depression. People who relate and support each other through depression may find that their symptoms decrease, and often find that sharing a common experience can provide emotional and practical support in ways that individual therapy may not.
Mindfulness & MEditation Group THerapy
Joining a group of like-minded souls for meditation has many benefits for the mind, body, and spirit. An environment of acceptance and belonging works to our benefit, and can foster better support towards an individual’s inward journey. Group meditation can help reduce stress, build a sense of connectedness, and improve overall well being.
PTSD Group Therapy
A major benefit of group therapy is validation. By participating in a group of people struggling with similar issues, one can see that they are not alone in their struggles. Particularly with PTSD, it can be difficult for a person without PTSD to understand what someone who suffers from it is going through. In a group setting, however, other participants with PTSD may recognize and validate what someone is going through, because they have a shared experience. In many cases, group therapy can be just as helpful as individual therapy.
