Navigating life’s challenges can sometimes feel isolating. You may know in theory that you’re not the only one in the world experiencing sadness, but sometimes not being able to talk directly with people in similar situations can make you feel lonely and lost. Group therapy offers a wonderful opportunity to receive support and practical information about a shared challenge. Here at Positive Mind Wellness, we have several therapy groups available.
What is Group Therapy?
Group therapy falls under the larger umbrella of psychotherapy. Clients with a similar issue or demographic meet with one or two group therapists at once as opposed to individually, although each client can also pursue individual therapy. The therapists are there to keep discussions on track, provide structure, and share knowledge on the issues at hand.
Therapy groups have up to 12 clients per group that discuss a range of issues within an hour or two. The specific aim of these discussions will differ depending on the type of group it is, but generally, they will offer support, provide information, and encourage positive attitudes and positive coping skills.
Types of Group Therapy We Offer
There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to group therapy. The five types of group therapy we offer are cognitive-behavioural, interpersonal, psychoeducational, skills development, and support groups. It is also important to note that groups can either be closed or open – the difference being whether or not there is a definite start and end date.

How Effective is Group Therapy?
The American Psychological Association stated that group therapy is just as effective as individual therapy, and sometimes even more effective. The benefits of group therapy boil down to the interactions between the group members.
There is shared experience and solidarity without the societal stigma members might be facing. At the same time, because the members are diverse and thus come with unique viewpoints, they can gain valuable insights from each other.
