Group Therapy is a type of confidential counseling in which a group of people meets to discuss shared concerns and problems with a therapist leading the session. Group members listen to feedback from others in the group to reflect on their shared challenges. Group members can act as a support for each other and share a therapeutic experience. Group therapy can provide a safe setting to cope with many problems, including dealing with social anxieties, mood disorders, relationship issues, eating disorders, loss, grief, anger, personality disorders, surviving abuse, divorce, health issues, parenting needs, and general psychotherapy concerns.
