Group therapy can augment individual treatment plans, and sometimes it even replaces the one-on-one sessions completely. Group therapy provides a safe setting for real-life interaction with others. In this environment, group members can discuss their problems honestly and give each other feedback and positive reinforcement.
Groups provide a setting in which members can learn to identify, understand and express their feelings accurately to others. Led by a therapist, members are encouraged to share their thoughts
openly, but at their own pace. Group therapy can provide a sense of community that greatly enhances the psychological healing process.
The price of group therapy is significantly less compared to individual psychotherapy. However, group therapy is not for everyone. Please consult your therapist to find out if group therapy is right for you.
