What is group psychotherapy ?

It provides a place where you come together with others to share problems or concerns, to better understand your own situation, and to learn from and with each other.

Group psychotherapy helps people learn about themselves and improve their interpersonal relationships. It addresses feelings of isolation, depression or anxiety, and it helps people make significant changes so they feel better about the quality of their lives.
