Group Therapy Bridge Counseling

At first, the thought of participating in group therapy might be intimidating. Sharing your story with strangers may seem scary? But group therapy, where one or more counselors lead a group of 6 to 14 people, can be highly beneficial. Almost always, within a few sessions, people are comfortable enough to interact in the group. Many first-time participants are surprised by how worthwhile their experience is.

Groups usually meet once a week for 60 to 90 minutes. How much participants want to share in a group is an individual decision, but knowing that what is said in the group is completely confidential creates safety for sharing. 

Benefits of Group Therapy

Promote Growth. Most people find that when they feel safe enough to share personal issues, therapy groups can be affirming and help them to grow. Hearing how other participants successfully overcame fears or how they handled difficult situations can be very encouraging.

Provides Support. It feels good to know that you are not alone in having challenges. Many participants experience a sense of relief.

Increases Acceptance of Self and Others. An organic process of enhanced acceptance of self and others occurs as participants learn to relate more honestly and directly with each other in the group.

Costs less than individual counseling. A common myth is that because group therapy costs less, it’s not as good, but group therapy can be extremely powerful.

Teach you about yourself. Participants in the group help you to see yourself through their eyes. The group provides an opportunity for personal experimentation; it is a safe place to risk enough to learn more about yourself.
