What is group therapy?

Group therapy is a therapeutic approach that brings together a small group of individuals facing similar challenges, under the guidance of a trained therapist. Unlike individual therapy, group therapy provides a supportive environment where participants can share their experiences, insights, and emotions with others who can relate to their struggles. It offers a unique opportunity for personal growth, self-discovery, and emotional healing within a collective setting.

In group therapy, the group itself becomes an essential component of the therapeutic process. Participants interact, offer support, and provide different perspectives, creating a sense of community and shared understanding. This collaborative atmosphere fosters empathy, acceptance, and the opportunity to learn from others who may be on similar journeys.

The primary objective of group therapy is to offer a safe and confidential space where individuals can explore their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Through this process, they gain insights, develop coping strategies, and work toward personal growth and improved emotional well-being.

What does group therapy involve?

Group therapy typically involves regular meetings, with each session lasting approximately 60 to 90 minutes. During these sessions, participants engage in discussions and activities facilitated by a trained therapist. While the specific structure may vary based on the group’s focus and goals, several common elements are found in most group therapy settings:

group therapy
  • Group dynamics: Participants share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences while actively listening to others. Group members may offer support, feedback, and different perspectives on each other’s challenges.
  • Trust and confidentiality: A fundamental aspect of group therapy is creating a safe and confidential environment where members can share openly without fear of judgment or breaches of privacy.
  • Therapist guidance: The therapist guides discussions, ensures a balanced dialogue, and provides support and interventions as needed. They help participants explore their thoughts and emotions and offer coping strategies.
  • Shared goals: Group therapy sessions often have specific goals or themes, such as managing anxiety, overcoming trauma, improving relationships, or enhancing self-esteem. The therapist and group members collaboratively work toward these goals.
  • Skill-building: Participants learn practical skills, coping strategies, and techniques to manage their challenges and promote personal growth.

Benefits of group therapy:

  • Shared support: Group therapy offers a sense of belonging and support from others who understand your experiences, reducing feelings of isolation.
  • Diverse perspectives: Interacting with people from various backgrounds and perspectives provides a broader understanding of your challenges and potential solutions.
  • Enhanced self-awareness: Hearing others share similar experiences can lead to increased self-awareness and personal insights.
  • Improved coping strategies: Group members learn from each other’s coping strategies, fostering personal growth and resilience.
  • Cost-effective: Group therapy is often more cost-effective than individual therapy, making mental health support more accessible.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
