Group Therapy

As social beings, we can benefit from expressing shared concerns, fostering a sense of universality and community. Experience this sense of support and understanding by working on shared concerns in group therapy facilitated by trained counsellors. 

What Is Group Therapy ?

Group therapy is a format of psychotherapy where the counselor uses her expertise in psychology to help a group of people resolve difficulties that they commonly face. In addition to the counselor’s expertise, the dynamics and interaction between group members are important factors in the growth and change in each group member.

During group therapy sessions, issues that are commonly faced by the group are chosen by the counselor for discussion. Alternatively, the group chooses issues they wish to work on. These issues are then taken up, discussed in detail, with perspectives from several group members. Across sessions, the counselor then helps the group understand these issues better and gain more clarity about underlying perceptions and thoughts. Also, techniques for dealing with the issues are discussed. The group attempts some specific interventions shared in each session and returns with their experiences and feedback in the next session.

Gradually, the group members gain a better understanding of themselves, attain a happier, more peaceful emotional state and feel better able to cope with the situation.
