Mental health struggles can make you feel isolated and alone. If you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, or another mental health concern, you might feel as though no one understands what you’re going through. Group therapy offers a supportive and understanding environment to help you find perspective, build a network of support, and discover healthy coping skills.
At Peer Mental Wellness, our group therapy program is designed to provide an accepting and non-judgmental environment for those who are working to find healing from mental health concerns. Our therapists incorporate evidence-based modalities, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based practices into our group counseling program.
How Group Therapy Supports Mental Wellness
A group therapy program provides clients with a safe and supportive environment to explore and process their thoughts and emotions with others who share similar experiences. It can help participants build a sense of community, reduce feelings of isolation and shame, and provide a space for growth and healing. Group therapy can cover a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, and relationship issues, to name a few.
What to Expect in Group Therapy Sessions
Our group therapy program in Los Angeles is led by a licensed therapist who welcomes and guides the group through the session. Clients can expect to participate in various activities, such as group discussions, role-playing, and sharing personal experiences. Group therapy is not a standalone therapy, but rather a complementary therapy that supports individual therapy sessions.
Just a few of the benefits of group therapy as part of a mental health treatment program include:
- Shared experiences – Group therapy can provide a sense of belonging and relief in knowing that you are not alone in your struggles.
- Feedback and support – Group members can provide valuable feedback and support, often offering different perspectives that can help clients gain insight into their challenges.
- Accountability and motivation – The group can help clients stay accountable and motivated in their treatment goals, providing encouragement and holding them accountable.
- Skills training – Group therapy can help clients learn and practice new skills, such as communication, problem-solving, and coping skills.
Our emphasis on holistic care means that we tailor our group therapy program to meet the specific needs of each of our clients. Whether you’re looking for help managing your anxiety, coping with depression, or finding healing from trauma, our compassionate staff is here to support you every step of the way.
First responders and veterans can find special support and resources through our group therapy program. Our experienced therapists help you build resiliency, increase your self-awareness, and identify new ways of managing stress and anxiety.
