Group Therapy and Therapeutic Support Groups
Talking Treatment runs a number of different Therapeutic Support Groups. These are designed to offer weekly therapeutic support or psychoeducational CBT strategies and learning tools. Groups normally run for 6-12 weeks.
Group therapy is designed to support you through a difficult time in life. A group provides a support network in which you can feel understood. Group therapy helps you manage binds and conflicts and facilitates clearer thinking and decision-making. Being in a group puts you in contact with people who have problems similar to your own.
You can learn from their experiences and coping strategies, and see your problems from other peoples’ perspectives. Research has shown that interacting and building trusting and supportive relationships is a major a factor in overcoming negative experiences.
Trained therapists maintain a safe, supportive and confidential environment. Non-judgement is a crucial element, allowing individuals to deal with feelings and issues that arise. Feedback from others produces a reflective process and allows for unhelpful patterns in one’s life to become apparent. As confidence is gained in this secure group setting, there are opportunities for authenticity and self expression which can lead to improved psychological and emotional wellbeing. The daily difficulties in life can become more clearly understood and managed with support and a clearer perspective.
Often someone may join a group after individual therapy so as to develop continued support, or may start in a stress management group, and then wish to explore some of the themes that have come up in one to one. Talking Treatment helps you take the course that suits you.
