Group Counselling

The Benefits of Group Conselling

Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group counselling provides many benefits that individual therapy may not. Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other group members often help you develop new ideas for resolving a difficult issue or life challenge, and they can help hold you accountable along your own journey.

Regularly engaging with others about your mental health helps you put your problems in perspective. Many people experience mental health difficulties, but few speak openly about them. Group counselling helps brings normalcy to your struggles with mental health, which makes them easier to address. Hearing what others are going through can be a relief because it enables you to realize you’re not alone.

Let's Talk
Group therapy sessions that are led by a qualified psychotherapist are especially effective. A therapist can mediate the session and share proven strategies for managing specific problems.

Your first session involves an initial assessment of your well being and a thorough intake of your personal history and background. We will discuss what counselling strategies are right for you. Some clients are hesitant about joining a group, but you may be surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be.

Subsequent therapy sessions are 60 minutes in length and are unique to each treatment plan.
