Group Therapy For Young Adults

The term ‘young adult’ is in itself an oxymoron. It’s a figure of speech that joins two opposite words together – “young” and “adult”! And this explains exactly how a person belonging to this age group (20-26) feels.

“What am I doing with my life?”, “Should I stay in this relationship?”, “Am I taking the right career decision?”

Or deeper questions like: “Am I ‘good’ enough?” “How do I fit in?! Will I ever??” ,“Why am I still immature?”, “Why am I still so hurt by memories from my childhood?” If questions like these are what you find yourselves thinking about often, then read on:

Sometimes you wonder about these things, right? If you’re in your 20s, you know exactly the feeling. The stress of making the ‘correct choice’ is an unavoidable one. You can postpone addressing these questions, but let’s face it, that just adds to your stress and keeps you away from living a relaxed, fuller life.

As children and teens, you may have had people directly or indirectly telling you what to do and what not to. Sometimes this pointing out may have helped, at other times it may have simply left you irritated. With college though, there’s more freedom, and less instructions. But what happens post college? You might be going through some relationship dilemma, finding a partner, finding a job, wondering whether you are on the right track in terms of your career, wondering about how to take your life ahead.. Yes, you may be starting to realize as young adults, how much you are truly on your own, and the depth of what these words –“being on your own” can mean! This is where therapy can come in as help.

Seeking Help Through Group Therapy

We have devised a group therapy program for young adults aimed at addressing these questions in a freer, more deeper manner and making choices that are more thought through and meaningful. In an Open Group, you can find space to discuss issues you may be shy to talk about because they may seem small or impractical, but are truly bothering you. You can stop feeling so alone, or even lonely in your situation.

Gradually the group members, with the help of the therapist, would be able to understand themselves better, gain more clarity about the nature of the crises they face, and what they can do to work towards resolution. Know more about the nature and principles of Group Therapy

Areas that will be worked through in Group Therapy for Young Adults

In group sessions, the following areas will be therapeutically addressed:-

– Social Anxiety – enhancing social skills, attaining comfort within oneself when one is with others

– Relationship Difficulties – be it romantic relationships, relationships with parents or friends

– Career and Work related stress – addressing confusions pertaining to career path and difficulties on the job

– Decisions about Marriage – addressing questions about marriage – about individual readiness for marriage as well as expectations of family

– Deeper emotions such as a tendency to feel easily worried, stressed or angry – understanding more about what these emotions mean and how to cope with them

– Enhancing Faith in Oneself

We would love to have you as a part of these sessions. In order to do so, contact us on 9833985538 or email us on info@demo.innerspacetherapy.in. Initially, you would book an individual consultation session with us where we can discuss the difficulties that you wish to resolve in detail.

  1. Dear Aayushmaan,

    Thank you for expressing interest in our work. However, as of now, we haven’t planned any group therapy programs for young adults.

    Having to deal with stammering can be difficult. Through personal therapy, you could help you explore this concern in a deeper light, and find ways to manage the same adequately. We have sent you an email with the details of the counselling procedure. Please do check and feel free to get in touch with us.

    Warmly,
    The Inner Space Team

  2. Hii i just wanted to know whether you charge something for this….i’m 20 and i’m going through a bit of a stammering problem!

  3. Hi Aditi,
    Thanks for writing in.
    It seems that you have been through a difficult phase in life. Often we tend to carry emotional baggages of our past. Sometimes, it is helpful to talk to a professional about your thoughts and emotions, and get a fresh perspective.
    Currently, we do not have group therapy sessions planned for 2016.
    However, you can consider going in for individual therapy.
    Please feel free to get in touch with us regarding your queries.
    We would be glad to assist you.

    Thanks and Regards,
    The Inner Space Team

  4. Hi I am 20 and I have been through a lot since my childhood and I still feel uncomfortable though I have changed a lot. I want to attend the group sessions but since it takes place in October. I think I won’t be able to attend it because I will be very busy with my third year exams and different entrance tests in the month of October and after that as well . Please let me know if there are any session of such kind available during summer(2016)

  5. Hi Pravin,
    Thanks for writing in to us. We understand your concerns.
    During adolescence, one usually goes through a transitory period which may lead to behavioural changes. We will be able to help you understand him better through counselling. We will also be able to help him cope with these changes.
    We have emailed across the counseling process to you to help your son and you cope with the situation.
    Kindly check, and feel free to get in touch with us.

    Thanks and Regards

  6. My son snehal studying in XIITH std is below averages students and not having interest towatd study. He always have interest for playing games. Pls help to improvement of his behaviour attitude.

  7. Hi Nikita,
    We agree that there is a lot of merit in working towards independence and shifting from the victim mode. We suggest you seek help from a counselor. A counselor will gradually help you understand the root reasons that keep you from feeling confident. She will also help you make behavioral changes. We have sent you an email with details about the process and the fee structure. Please check for an email from info@demo.innerspacetherapy.in
    Thanks and Warm Regards
