What is group therapy?

Group therapy is usually comprised of 6-8 individuals who meet with a licensed therapist to openly discuss his or her issues. Group therapy has many benefits over individual therapy. For instance, many people report that it helps to know that others are also experiencing difficulty and feel enriched by the social support of others. It is common to find other group members who are experiencing with similar issues that you may have, such as depression, anxiety, anger issues, or even addiction. The group environment provides a safe space for greater personal experimentation and exploration of one’s issues.
