Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Unlike individual therapy sessions, group therapy offers the opportunity to interact with others who have similar issues in a safe and supportive environment. Group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the experience can be.
Groups can act as a support network and sounding board, and can help you put your own problems in perspective. By witnessing how other people tackle problems and make positive changes, you can discover a whole range of strategies for facing your own concerns.
