Why Group Therapy
Group Therapy is widely used and is shown to be as effective as individual treatment. Group and individual therapies help with relationship and self-esteem issues. The therapist assists the clients to appreciate how their feelings, thoughts and behaviors are connected to the tension between what is and is not in our control within ourselves and our environment. The goal of treatment is to learn new skills, insights and experiences so to be more self-directed, cooperative and self-reflective.
