Starting Group therapy

What is Group therapy?

Group therapy enables individuals to participate in sessions with one of our skilled therapists in Ashland in a collective setting. The primary goal of group therapy is to establish a supportive and confidential environment where participants can openly discuss their emotional, psychological, or behavioral challenges. Through these group sessions, clients collaborate with the therapist and fellow participants to explore, understand, and ultimately find solutions for the issues affecting their lives.

How does Group therapy work?

Group therapy operates within a well-defined structure that starts with an initial assessment session. During this assessment, the therapist gathers pertinent information, delving into the individual histories, concerns, and aspirations of each group member. This collaborative approach not only fosters a sense of inclusivity but also ensures that the goals are designed to resonate with each individual, thereby maximizing the benefits of group therapy.

Is Group therapy conducted in person or online?

Group therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Group therapy last?

Group therapy with a provider at Thriveworks in Ashland, VA can either be brief, spanning just a few sessions, or long-term, extending over several months. The precise number and duration of group therapy sessions are generally decided collectively by group members and the therapist, offering adaptability to meet the unique needs and goals of the group.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
