Group counseling involves one or more clinicians who lead a group of roughly four to twelve clients . Typically, groups meet for an hour or two each week. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only. The group is designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, obesity, panic disorder, social anxiety, chronic pain or substance abuse.
Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, helping people deal with a range of issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness and low self-esteem. Groups often help those who have experienced loss, whether it be a spouse, a child or someone who died by suicide.Group therapy sessions are led by one or more clinicians with specialized training, who teach group members proven strategies for managing specific problems.

What I mean by email support: During the first few sessions I will tend to send you a fair bit of information for you to read in your own time, so that our coaching sessions are used most efficiently. You are also free to email me as much as you wish with thoughts, questions and updates. I also set tasks, depending on what your needs are at the time – I can be gentle or I can be more challenging, depending upon your preference. I respond to all emails within 1 business day.
