In group counseling, you will meet with a licensed therapist and a small group (6 to 8 people) who are experiencing similar concerns to your own. Group counseling can sound intimidating at first; however, there are a lot of benefits to group counseling and you may be surprised at how rewarding the experience can be.
Group Counseling in Wichita
Our goal is that group acts as a local support network and a sounding board. Many people have mental health issues; however, very few have an outlet to discuss them. This leaves people feeling isolated, and as if they are the only ones struggling. The unique group dynamic allows you to listen and talk to others who are experiencing similar concerns or experiences, which can put your own difficulties into perspective, and can bring a sense of relief as you recognize that you are not alone.
