What exactly is Group Counseling you might ask? Well, at ESSENTIALS, group counseling is where 1-2 trained professional therapists meet with 2-8 individuals, who share similar struggles, at one time. While group counseling may not be the best option for everyone, it has many benefits.
Group counseling may be uncomfortable at first glance, however, once involved it can offer socialization, understanding, and connection with others who share very similar struggles. Groups help individuals not feel so isolated and provides a safe place for sharing information which assists in gaining the different perspectives of others. It can be a great way to learn new skills while also feeling a sense of belonging. Groups are also less expensive because the time is shared.
