Group Therapy is a type of psychological therapy that takes place within a group of people together (rather than a one-on-one session, with one therapist and one client).
Group Therapy is run by at least two qualified psychotherapists or counsellors who will have experience of facilitating groups and group-work.
Engaging in therapy within a group environment offers many advantages. Group Therapy provides a support network and the opportunity to meet others experiencing similar concerns. Together with the therapist(s) and the other group members, you will be encouraged to share your experiences and work on understanding yourself better.
As with one-to-one therapy, Group Therapy is confidential. It typically involves 4-8 other group members (excluding therapists). If you sign up for Group Therapy, you will be expected to attend a certain number of sessions (e.g., 6 two-hour sessions, on a weekly/fortnightly basis).
We will only run Group Therapy sessions when we have enough people to run sessions over a period of time (e.g. 4-8 people over a period of 6+ weeks on a weekly or fortnightly basis).
So, if you are interested in attending Group Therapy and wish to be contacted about the start of the next programme of Group Therapy, please get in touch via the Contact Page here or complete the Book Appointment Form here.
If you need more information or have any questions, please feel free to get in touch or see below!
This is currently on hold until we receive more interest. Group Therapy and one-to-one therapy are alike in many ways and the aims of both are similar. However, in Group Therapy, therapists may utilise the group dynamic to achieve these aims in a different way. The basics of Group Therapy are:
