GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPY FAQ
WHY JOIN A GROUP ?
“Group therapy offers a potent alternative to individual therapy. Its proponents regard it as a more democratic form of therapy: the therapist is less an authority and more part of the group; all members, potentially, are therapists for each other. It prepares people for the reciprocal nature of social living; for give and take; for receiving and giving help; for centring on the self and decentring from the self. In the busy, computerised, materialistic and often lonely world of the early 21st century, it may hold the key to a new form of community and relatedness.” Dr Morris Nitsun
DOES EVERYONE IN THE GROUP HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM?
People in the groups come with a number of issues often concerning family, relationships, work, social concerns, anxiety, loss, bereavement, depression or a wish to have a better life.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I KNOW SOMEONE IN THE GROUP?
This is a common worry but rarely happens. Every effort is made to ensure you don’t know the other group members.
IS THERE AN AGENDA OR SET TOPIC FOR EACH GROUP?
Group members can talk about anything that comes to mind, past or present, including what is happening in the group.
HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT WHAT I SAY WILL NOT BE OUTSIDE THE GROUP?
Group members are asked to agree that people don’t repeat what is said by anyone else in the group, outside the group. Confidentiality is an important part of creating a sense of safety.
HOW DO I KNOW WHETHER A GROUP OR INDIVIDUAL THERAPY WOULD BE MORE SUITABLE FOR ME?
A group provides a greater sense of belonging, and the opportunity to share concerns with others is highly valued. People often feel alone in their distress and learning that others share similar problems is of great importance.
WHAT IF I FIND THE IDEA OF TALKING IN FRONT OF OTHERS TOO DAUNTING?
Many people worry about this, but then experience a sense of relief when they join a group and find that others have struggled with this concern but have found a way to overcome it. It takes time, you have to pace yourself.
