A great benefit to group therapy is that it can provide a safe and affirming place to come together with your peers. Hearing others speak about similar issues and concerns will help you feel that you are not alone.
Group therapy can often help you find your “voice.” Groups can teach you about yourself. They help with reducing isolation and gaining social skills. Groups can offer hope, encouragement, inspiration, and sometimes suggestion. Because of this, groups can provide peer support different than that which your therapist can provide to you in a one-on-one session.
