Group therapy courses are an alternative way of engaging in psychological therapy and there is a growing evidence-base for the effectiveness of group psychological therapy programmes.

At EBTC, we have a group room where we can host a range of programmes.  Many people say they do not like the idea of attending group therapy.  In our experience of running group programmes, once the anxiety of the first session is over, people really enjoy and benefit from attending.

Group therapy testimonials

Here are some of the reasons clients have said they enjoyed the psychological group therapy programmes:

“I thought I was the only one who felt like this.  Knowing other people have similar problems really helped me to feel less alone”.

“I have learned so much from other people in the group”.

“I was motivated by other group members. Seeing what they were achieving really spurred me on to do the same”.

“When I didn’t feel like attending, I came anyway because I didn’t want to let everybody down – I wouldn’t have got this far without them”.

Types of group therapy courses

We plan to run a group programme once we have a better idea of what people would like.  Possible groups we could run include:

  • Anxiety and stress management
  • Depression management
  • Relapse prevention for bi-polar disorder
  • Managing low self-esteem
