Common Questions and Answers about Group Psychotherapy

What is Group Therapy?
Group Therapy is participating in psychotherapy in a communal setting with other like-minded people who are interested in improving their well-being. A group usually consists of 6 to10 members who meet weekly to provide and receive support and feedback to help each other deal with their problems and resolve their issues. Group therapy is conducted by a specially trained psychologist who facilities discussion and support. Dr. Sheila is such a psychologist. She is a Certified Group Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience running groups.

How Does Group work?
Like individual therapy, group therapy works by providing a positive trusting setting for overcoming your problems. In addition, group facilitates growth because by engaging in, supporting and observing the therapy work done by other groups participants, a member has the opportunity to gain insight and resolve his/her own issues in a way that does not exist in an individual therapy session.

What Can a Group Member Expect?
Group psychotherapy members report improved interpersonal relationships, increased self-confidence and self-esteem, improved intimacy skills and enhanced coping skills.
