Everyone struggling who has sought out therapy knows this much: Therapy is expensive. Even with insurance, the cost of one-on-one therapy with a licensed professional can be reason enough to keep people from going back more than once or twice.
At Grouport, mental health care is something we consider a necessity for a balanced life. In our opinion, therapy shouldn’t carry a stigma of luxury when everyone can benefit from it and everyone should be able to access it.
Fortunately, individual therapy isn’t the only option. Group therapy has gained popularity in recent years due to its accessibility. Numerous studies prove its effectiveness as an alternative or supplement to one-on-one therapy.
Our mission is to make online group therapy accessible to everyone, so that no matter who you are, you can receive highly specialized care and improve your overall wellbeing.
Group therapy costs less than one fourth of traditional therapy. While individual sessions can cost upwards of $150 a visit, Grouport costs only $35 a week ($35 a session).
Working with a trained professional and a group of your peers offers a symbiotic, therapeutic relationship that gives you an opportunity to explore your thoughts and patterns of behavior.
You’ll get the chance to explore new techniques to better manage the daily stressors and symptoms associated with your diagnosis. This covers anxiety therapy, PTSD therapy, mindful therapy, therapy for depression, and many others.
Our members get the most value out of their investment in Grouport. They are consistently showing up for themselves and the group every week.
Check out what a few of our members are saying:
“It's difficult for me to stay motivated to practice DBT and this group helps me. It helps me focus and practice DBT skills for an hour. I'm unable to do this on my own. And it's nice to be around a group of people for support.”
- Kelly, 34
“Grouport has truly shown me that I am not the only one struggling.”
- Maxwell, 30
“I was feeling very down at the end of 2020 and I was ready to do something drastic that I know I'd likely regret. The group definitely helped show me that there are people who feel the same way as I do.”
- Sheldon, 36
Our members understand and appreciate that no great thing is created suddenly. It must blossom, bear fruit, and ripen. It takes constant work and practice, forcing you to dive deeper into yourself, which may be overwhelming. You will come face to face with difficult truths about yourself that you don’t want to accept, but in these times, we want you to know that it’s important to stick with it, no matter how hard things get.
Keep it up. You’ll soon begin experiencing some of these long-term benefits:
1. Being more productive.
In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor explains how positive emotions lead to greater productivity: “Happiness gives us a real chemical edge…How? Positive emotions flood our brains with dopamine and serotonin, chemicals that not only make us feel good, but dial up the learning centers of our brains to higher levels.”
2. Improving how you interact with people in your life.
Online group therapy can help balance the way you communicate with friends, family, and other loved ones to improve your relationships. Life is all about having fulfilling relationships with the people who bring joy to your life, and successfully navigating relationships with people who don’t.
3. Learning life-long coping skills.
Psychologist Rob Winkler said that “better coping leads to better responses and better responses lead to better experiences, which create more opportunity and prosperity in all aspects of our lives.”
4. Feeling happier.
Talking over your past, present, and future with your therapist and peers can lead to greater self-understanding. Group therapy emphasizes self-acceptance and self-understanding, which can lead to more health-promoting behaviors and an overall happier well being.
5. Experiencing less chronic stress.
Online group therapy will introduce you to new methods for calming your mind and body that may include guided visualization, radical acceptance, and deep breathing. Stress relief in the short-term provides those necessary building blocks for long-term patterns of stress management.
