Who Should Come to Group Therapy?
Group counseling is tremendously helpful in your journey of recovery. Our support groups are invaluable for developing connections with others who are learning the same relationship skills, struggling with the same kinds of problems, and who need the support of a community of non-judgmental supporters. You will gain a sense of community and understanding within our groups. Our groups are confidential, safe, and supportive and can be attended by anyone who is seeing a counselor at Healing Hearts of Indy.
Why Should I Go To Group Therapy?
Many times the idea of joining a support group can be intimidating. Walking into a room full of strangers to share your deepest hurts, habits, and hang-ups might not be your first choice on the list of fun things to do. You will find tremendous value in group therapy through connections you make with others and the understanding and support you receive. Those who attend are genuine, compassionate, and gracious with their acceptance of others. Our groups and group members learn to give what is needed most: warmth, care, support, and outstanding feedback. Connections that are made in our groups can last a lifetime.
Who Will Be There?
Our support groups are made up of individuals who are on their own recovery journey. Group members have been or are current clients of our counselors. They have varying presenting issues such as marital problems, addictions, anxiety, depression, affair recovery, and many other challenges. We are careful to place clients in groups that will best facilitate their growth and anonymity is stressed.
What Can I Expect?
Group meetings are typically one and a half hours in length and are made up of a check-in time where everyone is given the opportunity to share what is happening in their lives at the present moment, a time of processing and discussion, and ending with a check-out time to facilitate group closure. If you are new to group, introductions will be made to help you get comfortable with the process and meet the members. All of the groups at Healing Hearts are facilitated by our master’s level therapists to ensure safety in the group process. Our group therapy will excel your change and growth process.
