Some groups of young people can share similar difficulties such as anxiety, depression, anger, finding it difficult to make friends, behaving in a particular way or not having English as their first language. We offer group sessions for some young people who may find it more helpful to talk to a therapist in a group.
Group therapy is a chance for you to talk to one or two of our therapists in a group with others. Some group sessions will have topics which everyone will discuss together, and other group sessions will be open for you to discuss whatever you want. Group therapy is a space for young people to sit together and share experiences, thoughts and feelings. The therapist(s) will help you to think together about any difficulties you might be facing, and what changes you want to make.
While for some people, going to group therapy is enough, sometimes people will see a therapist individually as well. If you finish the group sessions and decide you would like to continue seeing a therapist, you will have the opportunity to discuss starting individual sessions.
