Are you dissatisfied with your relationships? Find yourself repeating the same patterns and mistakes over and over again? It’s time to break the cycle.

Let’s state the obvious that we might not always want to believe: relationships are hard work. We all have habitual relationship patterns that block us with friends, lovers, coworkers, and family. Group is the ideal social environment to evoke your interpersonal patterns and learn to cultivate extraordinary relationships.

What Are The Benefits of Group Therapy?


Group therapy is especially transformative because unconscious relationship patterns play out in real-time. Over time, group members begin to relate to each other similar to how they experience intimate relationships outside the group. This recreation of your outside world allows the group to examine how you relate to others, how you relate to yourself, your expectations in relationships, and strategies you’ve learned to protect yourself from vulnerability, emotional closeness, and intimacy. By becoming conscious of these relationship dynamics, members learn how current relationship dynamics are actually a reflection of the past. Members are then empowered to relate to both themselves and others in healthier, more adaptive ways.

Group also teaches members to pay attention to their feelings in the moment. By paying attention to feelings moment-to-moment, members learn to use emotions as important signals to help navigate their relationships with others and make important decisions in their lives. Specifically, members become skilled at identifying their emotions, managing them effectively, understanding their root causes, expressing them authentically with others, and ultimately taking empowered action. While this may sound scary, you will not be alone in this. Both the group leader and other members are there to support you every step of the way.

According to the APA, group therapy is just as effective as individual therapy. In some cases, group therapy is actually more effective than individual therapy.

Other Benefits of a group setting include:

  • Group therapy is often less expensive than individual therapy

  • Individuals are able to work through their attachment/childhood traumas in real-time

  • Assures individuals they are not alone and that they share similar struggles with others

  • People have the opportunity to receive and give support to each other fostering a sense of belonging and community

  • Group therapy helps people develop better relationship skills and grow as individuals

  • Individuals in group therapy can learn from other successful behavior, especially when they have gone through similar life experiences

  • Group therapy sessions also allow a person to experiment with different ways of being with both themselves and others

 

What Should I Expect?


Groups are typically 8-12 members in size, meet once per week for 120 mins, and have a fixed rate per session. The group will meet in a room where the chairs are arranged in a circle so that members can see each other clearly. Group sessions are 120 mins of free-flow dialogue. This means that the direction of the group session is decided by the members, with the therapist helping to facilitate.

No topic is off-limits. Group members work to understand themselves and the other group members deeply. They do this by communicating thoughts and feelings toward other members and the leader and why they have them. Over time, group members share the emotionally significant story of their lives, discuss important aspects of their life with the group, and eventually take at least one portion of the talking time each week. Group members are instructed to think and feel out loud and to become intimately known by others in the group. This is the material through which the group session flows.
