Group therapy can be a great way to get therapy while surrounded by encouraging group members who have similar experiences to yours. Group members have the chance to support one another, learn from each other, and offer guidance through shared experiences. It also breaks down the walls of isolation that you may be feeling due to your mental health disorder.
Whether you have been in group therapy before, been recommended for it by your mental health professional, or it’s just something you are interested in checking out, it’s important to find a group therapy in South Jersey that’s right for you.
Where to find group therapy for stress and anxiety
Okay, so you’ve made the decision to seek out group therapy but you’re not sure where to start. Here are some places you can turn to begin your search for group therapy near you.
It’s likely that your therapist or mental health practitioner either runs group therapy sessions or knows someone who does. Ask them for recommendations and see if you can get a couple of options from them that you’ll be able to research and explore.
You can also reach out to friends and family to see if they know of any groups that you may be able to learn more about. Even if they’ve never attended a group therapy session before, they might know someone who has.
Recommendations are always a good way to find group therapy groups because they’ve been “vetted” by someone you already know. But, just because someone recommends a group doesn’t mean you have to go to it. That’s up to you to decide!
If you open up Google and type in ‘group therapy in South Jersey,’ you are sure to find various search results pop up. These can include websites that have lists where you can find group therapy options or mental health providers that are offering them. You might even find some online therapy groups in the search results as well. Like anything else, be sure to do ample research before you choose one to attend and see if you can speak to one of the group therapy administrators beforehand to gather more information.
