Group Counselling and Therapy
Group counselling is a form of therapy where people with similar experiences/issues come together with a professional therapist. The therapist runs the session, but generally everyone contributes in some way, listening to others and talking themselves. It’s usually focused on a particular issue, like: addiction.
Groups can be as small as three or four people, but group therapy sessions often involve around seven to twelve individuals (although it is possible to have more participants). The group typically meets once or twice each week for an hour or two.
Group therapy can be very effective, especially in certain situations. Studies have shown that group therapy can be an effective treatment choice for depression and traumatic stress.
