"Some of the most comforting words in the universe are 'me too.' That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else's struggle, that you're not alone, and that others have been down the same road." – Anonymous

Group Counselling/Therapy provides you with a safe space to come together with others, to explore and reflect upon whatever issues are of concern to you and them.

The experience can be as rewarding as individual therapy.

There are many important aspects of being in the group. Learning how to communicate one's thoughts and feelings more effectively to another person and to be heard and understood is an integral part of relationships between group members.


Groups 2

Confidentiality is a central part of group work and is required for what is revealed during sessions, from everyone.

Many people experience mental health difficulties, but few speak openly about them. Often, you may feel like you are the only one struggling.

At Open Doors, we make use of integrative therapy to tailor our service specifically to each group.

Thinking of Joining a Group?

Group therapy meetings can be open or closed. We offer both.

  • In open groups, new members can join the group at any time. 
  • In a closed group, all members join at the same time. Only they participate in the sessions. 
How many people are in the group? 

Small groups may offer more time to focus on each individual in the sessions. Bigger groups offer further diversity and more perspectives. Sessions duration will depend on the number of members in the group.

What is the focus of group counselling/therapy?

Groups focus on the same issues as one on one counselling/psychotherapy.

How much should I share? 

Confidentiality is an integral part of the ground rules for group therapy. However, there's no guarantee of privacy when sharing with others, so use common sense when divulging personal information. That said, remember that you're not the only one sharing your own story. Groups work best where there is open and honest communication between members.
