What Can I Learn From Group Therapy?

Remember that sinking feeling when your grade school teacher posed a question to the class and waited patiently for hands to shoot up?

Maybe you didn’t know the answer, so you kept your head down and avoided eye contact.

It’s a moment we’re all familiar with. Hoping we don’t get called on, because we don’t know the answer.

Now imagine if every single other student in the room also didn’t know the answer. Imagine if you all raised your hands together, and simply said the truth - “I don’t know.”

That’s what it’s like to attend group therapy when you’re struggling with a specific problem.

When you join Grouport, you’re matched with a small group of people going through the exact same thing as you. And guess what? No one expects you to have all of the answers!

You and your fellow group members will connect each week in an online session - to laugh, share, listen, and grow together.

You’ll get to experience what it’s like to mutually benefit from receiving and giving support. You’ll further develop your communication and socialization skills through the incorporation of many different points of view. And finally, you can model the successful behaviors of other individuals who have gone through similar experiences.

Human beings - social in nature- thrive when they’re surrounded by other people, and group therapy provides a true sense of belonging.

This sense of belonging is the missing puzzle piece to deep learning, self-love, and inner growth. That’s why millions of people today are choosing group over individual therapy.

At Grouport Therapy, we can provide you with…

A Common Identity

Our members feel a sense of belonging, surrounded by people they can relate to.

One member said, “Grouport has truly shown me that I am not the only one struggling.”

Openness

Our groups provide a safe space where you can express yourself freely without fear of judgment.

One member said, “I like the connection you can make with total strangers and the confidentiality it comes with.”

A Healthier Perspective

Hearing other people’s stories helps you weigh in on how you view your own battle with mental health.

One member said, “I love getting another perspective on an issue from another participant. It changes my whole thought process and really helps me see things clearly.” - Rosemary, 22, struggles with anxiety.”

Self-Awareness

Listening to group members explain similar struggles gives you insight and clarity to your own situation.

One member said, “I am becoming much more self aware and am liking myself more. My relationships at work are better and I’m much happier.

Motivation

The power and momentum of group learning will inspire you to make your own changes.

One member said, “The group gives me something to work towards, and provides other outlooks you normally wouldn't consider.

Accountability

As you grow together, you will feel a sense of accountability to yourself and your group to practice and maintain the skills you’ve learned.

One member said, “I look forward to seeing the same group of people every week and helping each other out.”

So no matter how busy you are running around with your children, jobs, and other responsibilities, just know that your mental health doesn’t have to go on the back burner.

Our online group sessions are only once a week, for 60 minutes. Keeping this commitment is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.

We offer groups across 10 categories: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma & PTSD, OCD, Relationships, Grief and Loss, Chronic Illness, Substance Abuse, Borderline Personality Disorder, and DBT
