♦ What is Group Therapy?

Group therapy is a form of counselling in which one or two therapists work with a number of clients simultaneously.

By providing emotionally and physically safe spaces, therapists facilitating group therapy for youths can introduce discussions and explore issues that young people are often uncomfortable addressing.

♦ The Power of Group Interaction

One of the most powerful aspects of Group Therapy is the importance of peer interaction as a tool for healing and recovery.  

Through group sessions, participants will learn to properly communicate their ideas, build trust and grow through various activities. 

Activities in group therapy can promote communication and personal growth. 

Group activities,  role-playing and various games will build trust amongst group members and help develop better social skills.

Youths also find relief and peace in knowing that they’re not the only ones that struggle with these kinds of thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, or symptoms and therefore helps them not to feel as isolated or “weird” compared to their peers.

This group will help:

  • Relieve distress through discussing and expressing feelings.

  •  Learn and implement strategies to improve emotional functioning.

  • Help change attitudes, behaviours and habits that may be unhelpful and unproductive.

  •  Promote more constructive and adaptive ways of coping.
