Group Counseling Services
What Is Group Counseling?
Group counseling is typically conducted with a group of six to ten people and led by our counselor. These small groups meet regularly and members of the group listen to each other and openly share their own experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Group counseling has been shown to have many benefits and can be extremely effective. Individuals attending group counseling can expect to feel emotionally supported through shared experiences with other group members.
Why Group Counseling?
At CM Therapy Solutions, I truly believe in the power of the group. My experience shows, and academic research supports, that individuals that attend group therapy are often more successful in their treatment and have a more satisfying treatment experience. In cases of abuse or trauma, groups provide social support, they improve social networks, and they can reduce stigma, isolation, and feelings of alienation among members.
Some other advantages of group counseling are:
Acknowledges that other individuals share similar problems and struggles.
Gives members the opportunity to receive support and give support.
Gives members the ability to see and hear many different points of view.
Can help with communication and socialization skills.
Experience therapeutic healing from sharing experiences with others
Gives members the opportunity to model the successful behavior of other group members who have gone through similar experiences.
