LONG ISLAND GROUP COUNSELING
Human beings are social creatures. We are driven to connect with others, even without realizing it, because our relationship with those around us determines our support, our motivation, or energy, and our belief in a more positive future.
That is why group therapy in Long Island is such an effective tool for healing, recovery, and personal growth. No matter what type of group counseling program you choose to attend, you’ll find that there are benefits that are different than what you receive from individual therapy, helping to make the experience of group therapy incredibly fulfilling.
Group Counseling from a Long Island Psychologist
Group therapy comes in many different forms, and can be gathered for a variety of different issues. Common group therapy sessions include topics such as:
- Social Anxiety
One of my specialties as a Long Island psychologist is to create group therapy session that focus on an individual’s specific relationship struggles. I gather those that have either had problems within their relationship, or have found that they are struggling to create those unique and deep bonds with others, and use group therapy to provide more support and guidance throughout their journey.
Group therapy, especially for common issues like those listed above, can be immensely beneficial – in many cases. That is because with group counseling you also have:
- Accountability – When you meet regularly to go to group counseling, you often feel more accountable because you know that you have to meet and discuss your gains and improvements with other people.
- Support – There is nothing quite as powerful as social support, and in Long Island group counseling you’ll be surrounded by people that are rooting for your success, and those that you can support as well.
- Relatability – As a Long Island psychologist, I know how important it is to relate to others, and in group counseling sessions you’re surrounded by those just like you, discussing issues, concerns, and achievements with others going through similar challenges.
Group counseling represents an opportunity to grow emotionally with those around you that are also looking for your support and ready to support you. For many, it represents one of the most effective options for promoting a more positive future.
