Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which multiple clients work together in a safe and comfortable environment, under the guidance of a psychologist or psychotherapist who guides their interactions to achieve their individual therapy goals.
At Thrive Psychology Clinic, group therapy primarily falls under the following 3 categories:
Group therapy for adults involves a small group of people meeting together with a therapist to give and receive support to each other, learn how to express their issues freely, and develop their self-awareness. At Thrive Psychology Clinic, groups are categorised according to the type of mental health difficulties clients face, to build a safe, understanding, and inclusive environment.
Children have a natural ability to express themselves and resolve conflict through play. Group therapy allows children who struggle with social anxiety, poor social skills, or inattention, the opportunity to work through their challenges with other kids. At Thrive Psychology Clinic, group therapy for children incorporates various forms of play into the sessions, and these guided interactions with their peers helps children to develop their emotional intelligence and social skills.
Youths facing issues such as social anxiety, anger management, identity conflicts, bullying, all benefit from group therapy. At Thrive Psychology Clinic, we strive to create a supportive and compassionate environment that provides a safe space for teenagers and adolescents to explore these issues under the guidance of a therapist. This allows youths to build trust, identify and connect with their emotions, and communicate their thoughts effectively.
