Individual and Group Therapy

 

 Individual and Group Therapy

 

Individual Therapy/Individual Counseling is a collaborative process (partnership) between an individual and a counselor that aims to facilitate change and improve the individual’s quality of life. Counseling can help people confront barriers and modify behaviors that interfere with emotional, physical and mental well being.  Individual counseling may be used to treat specific, diagnosable mental health conditions (anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity, personality disorders) and/or address other concerns (stress, loss, career goals, relationship issues).

 

Group Therapy/Group Counseling is a shared therapeutic experience that involves the presence individuals who are working through similar issues and one or two counselors. It can focus on interpersonal relationships or on particular concerns shared by group members.  Types of issues addressed in a group format include things such as substance abuse, domestic violence, divorce, childhood abuse, physical health challenges (cancer, hepatitis, diabetes, HIV/AIDS), depression, grief/loss anxiety, PTSD, and eating-related disorders.  Group counseling may be used in addition to individual counseling or be used on its own.  Group participants find that discussing issues with those with similar challenges offers them a sense of belonging, empathy and encouragement.  Groups counseling also serves as a place where individuals at any stage of recovery can share their experience, strength and open with one another.  What happens in the group depends largely on who is present, topic being discussed, authenticity of the participants and effective skills of the counselor(s).
