What is group counseling?
Group counseling uses family, marital, or other group therapy sessions to help you through difficult times in your life. Reach out to All Day Medical Care Clinic if you or a family member struggles with:
- Anger management
- Behavioral problems in children
- Parenting difficulties
- Marital problems
- Intimacy and trust
- Depression, grief, or anxiety
- Another mental health disorder
- Low self-esteem
- Eating disorders
During counseling sessions, your spouse or entire family can join you to better understand struggles or behavioral problems within a family context. Together you, a counselor, and your family address problems in a safe environment with open communication.
Your provider may encourage you to attend group therapy sessions with other people going through the same mental health disorder or traumatic experience (such as grief) as you.

Joining group counseling might sound intimidating, but many group therapy members find the sessions extremely rewarding.
What should I expect during group counseling?
Various forms of group therapy exist, such as:
During group counseling sessions, your therapist leads a group of approximately 5 to 15 participants at one time. You might meet with your group for an hour one to two times weekly and attend individual therapy sessions too.
Group therapy classes often target specific problems, such as obesity, depression, grief, social anxiety, anger management, loneliness, post-traumatic stress, low self-esteem, or substance abuse.
Family counseling is useful if you or your child struggle with trauma, relationship, or behavioral problems. Your therapist helps you better understand behaviors within a family context in a safe, confidential environment with open communication.
