At Pathways Counseling Services, our counselors work with several people at the same time in a group setting. Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy. Group therapy can be very effective, especially in treating depression and traumatic stress.
Counseling in a group setting gives members an opportunity to increase understanding, learn more about the ways they interact, and provides a safe space to try new ways of communicating with others. The content of the group sessions are confidential and members agree not to identify other members or their concerns outside of the group.
Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.
Members also benefit from group therapy by listening carefully to others and realizing that they are not alone in their struggles. In the group environment, others can serve as mirrors that reflect the characteristics that one may wish to change or eliminate.
