You are not alone in your struggles. And accepting the support of others through group counseling will help you in your path towards recovery.
Whether you are struggling with body image issues, a mental health disorder, or any number of issues, you may feel isolated. When going through a challenging time, it’s all too easy to feel like you are the only one dealing with your particular struggles.
But while your exact experiences will always be unique to you, there are still many people who can relate to aspects of what you’re going through. And those people likely feel alone as well.
Group counseling is an ideal environment to hear from others with similar life experiences. You will have the space to hear their stories, and share your own. And you can help each other look at your similar circumstances in a new light.
Generally, you will have a choice between support and therapy groups. Support groups are usually more educational, and do not need to be led by a licensed therapist. Therapy groups do need a licensed therapist leading, and often deal with complex emotional processing.
If you are already seeing a therapist one on one, they can help you decide what would work best for you. Both support and therapy groups offer a place to explore common ground. Choosing a group is ultimately dependent on your personal needs.
You have a wide variety of groups to choose from at Bricolage Wellness:
