Group Therapy

At Klarriti we value the power of collective healing offered by group therapy. Group therapy is a unique form of therapy in which a small number of people meet together under the guidance of a professionally trained therapist to help themselves and one another. This approach is widely used and has been a standard treatment option for over 50 years.

Collective Healing and Growth

It often involves talking about your problems, but it can also involve other methods such as expressive therapies. Group therapy sessions are led by one or more psychologists with specialized training, who teach group members proven strategies for managing specific problems.

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. This type of therapy is widely available at a variety of locations including private therapeutic practices, hospitals, mental health clinics, and community centers.

Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy and medication.

One of the main advantages is the aspect of collective healing. Listening to peers going through the same struggles can be tremendously supportive and beneficial. You can use the group setting to gauge your progress and see the tangible results of treatment as your peers start to improve.

What can I expect in a group therapy session?

In a group therapy session, you can expect to find a safe and confidential space to explore issues with the guidance of a professional therapist and the support of others who are experiencing similar difficulties. Depending on the nature of the group, you may discuss shared experiences, offer mutual support, or work on specific skills together.

How can group therapy benefit me?

Group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. These include understanding you’re not alone in your struggles, giving and receiving support, gaining different perspectives, and practicing new behaviors in a safe environment. It can be especially beneficial for individuals dealing with depression, social anxiety, and life transitions.

Is everything I share in group therapy confidential?

Confidentiality is a key part of group therapy. Although therapists are bound by professional standards and laws to keep what is discussed in therapy confidential, other group members are not. However, most therapy groups have rules that require members to commit to keeping what is shared in the group confidential. Despite this, there is always a risk that someone might share outside the group, so it’s important to be mindful of this when sharing personal information.

More information regarding group therapy

Many group therapy sessions are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, obesity, panic disorder, social anxiety, chronic pain or substance abuse. Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, helping people deal with a range of issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness and low self-esteem.

Participation in group therapy can be particularly helpful once a psychoeducational element is strongly included. For example, this occurs when a group is used to teach about some aspect of mental health or to teach some form of self-care.

Group therapy provides individuals with a supportive network of peers who can offer different perspectives and validate shared experiences. Peer support in a group setting can have therapeutic benefits including reducing isolation and alienation, and providing inspiration and encouragement.

Group therapy allows individuals to develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar issues. It’s a safe environment to experiment with new ways of behaving, and provides feedback on the impact of such behaviors. Moreover, the group setting provides a supportive and encouraging environment for individuals to explore and understand their feelings and behaviors.

In conclusion, group therapy, as a part of a comprehensive treatment program, can provide profound benefits towards your mental health journey. Not only does it provide an avenue for support and inspiration, but also a platform for personal growth and understanding.
