Group Therapy

AT Therapy Austin

If you haven’t personally experienced a therapy group, you may have impressions from shows or movies about how it works. Sometimes those can be helpful and sometimes not so helpful. (For example, at Therapy Austin, you may be sitting in a circle with other people struggling with the same issues, but you won’t be sitting in a darkened room lit by fluorescent bulbs wearing a name tag and asked to join a Fight Club). 

Group therapy has been around for a long time and is an effective way to address issues like anxiety, depression, body image, and relationship struggles - issues most people struggle to manage alone. The truth is, we often get more out of group-learning than solo-efforts. Bonus: group therapy costs less per session than individual therapy!

    Therapy Austin’s ongoing weekly psychoanalytic psychotherapy group for adults is seeking new members!

    Group therapy is an effective way to address issues of anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, and addictive behaviors (and more!) The idea behind group therapy is that the unique experience of being in a community with peers allows people to benefit in ways that individual therapy, by nature, cannot address in the same way. For example, group members can learn to give and receive feedback from other members, increase self-awareness and gain insight by being around others with similar struggles, practice active listening skills, reduce feelings of loneliness, and learn to receive support and create connections. 

    Bonus: Group learning is a unique (and more affordable) way to participate in deep inner work.
