Group therapy is a therapeutic approach that brings together individuals facing similar challenges in a supportive and structured group setting. Led by a trained therapist, group therapy sessions provide an opportunity for participants to share experiences, gain insights, and learn valuable coping strategies within a safe and empathetic environment.

Participants can gain insights into their own issues by listening to others’ stories and perspectives. This shared learning fosters a deeper understanding of one’s own challenges.
Group therapy can address a wide range of topics, including stress management, self esteem, anxiety, depression, addiction recovery, grief, and more. This diversity allows clients to choose a group that best suits their needs.
