Why we should all give group therapy a go!

  • It helps you notice issues and habitual patterns in your life.
  • You can try different responses and different behaviors in group that you might not feel comfortable doing in your everyday life and relationships.
  • The other people in the group can offer a variety of different views and perspectives to help you work through things.
