Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy where a small group of people (between 6 and 10), come together to work with a trained therapist. Sessions are typically held once a week, and can last for several weeks or months, depending on the needs of the group.
In group therapy, the participants share common concerns, challenges, or issues they are facing. These issues can range from mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, or substance misuse to various life stressors like relationship difficulties, grief, or self-esteem issues. The group setting provides a safe and supportive environment where individuals can openly express themselves and explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Our role in group therapy is to facilitate the discussions and interactions within the group, ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to be heard and respected.
Group therapy can be a powerful and transformative experience, as it provides a unique opportunity for personal growth, self-discovery, and building a support network. If you're considering group therapy, it's essential to find a group that aligns with your specific needs and feels comfortable for you to participate in.
How Is Deep Seas Different?
As a neurodivergent, lived experience and queer-led service we like to incorporate a range of therapeutic elements that caters to the diverse needs and preferences of our participants. In particular, we emphasize the use of creative modalities as this encourages our participants to express themselves in non-verbal ways which can foster deeper emotional exploration and self-discovery.
