group therapy with catalyss counseling
In addition to offering individual counseling and online therapy, you can also participate in group therapy. Group therapy can help with a variety of issues, and can often-times be more powerful and life-changing than just individual work. The power of the group, the connections you make with others who have a shared experience, and the support you give to your group members can truly be inspiring.
Group therapy can be used in a few different ways. Many of our clients opt to do group therapy in addition to individual counseling, as a supplement to what they are working on and as a way to connect more deeply with others who are sharing their pain. Some of our clients opt to take a break from individual therapy to do group work, and thus the group therapy takes the place of individual counseling. Still other clients of ours opt into doing a group when they are going through a time of increased stress, isolation, or have met their individual therapy goals but want to continue to grow personally.
Group Therapy Online
Our groups are offered online only at this time, and while it may seem odd to do group counseling online, it is very similar to virtual meetings. If you already use Zoom or another online platform to do work-related meetings, online group therapy may be more comfortable for you. All you need to do online group counseling is either your phone, or a computer with a microphone and camera. We provide our groups over a secure video platform, and make it as easy for you to join and feel comfortable, as we are able to.
Why consider online group therapy?
Right now, there are several reasons to consider doing online group therapy. The isolation of staying home and staying safe is getting to you, or perhaps your anxiety has increased because you don't know what is going to happen next. Perhaps you are worried about your health or the health of your family members, and the potential grief is starting to overwhelm you. Or maybe you're wanting support from others in a group on how to work at home, manage a partner who's also working from home, and trying to figure out how to structure the kids' day and help them with remote learning.
Of course the stress is getting overwhelming! All of the above are great reasons to consider doing online group counseling. Hearing viewpoints of others, changing your perspective on your own situation, and getting unconditional support and understanding are some of the benefits of doing online group therapy.
How Online group Therapy Works
Online group counseling is done with you, the other group members, and a therapist facilitator over a secure video platform, and is much the same as in-person groups. You will sign up for a group, then prior to the group starting you will be either sent a link or invited to join to the online meeting by email. The group leader will ensure that everyone is set up appropriately and everyone can hear each other before starting the group. You will be able to participate, ask questions, and give feedback to other group members.
group therapy during coronavirus
Even if you are not “technologically advanced”, online group counseling can be made simple and easy. Therapy groups online can be a great option if you live in a more rural or isolated area of Colorado and do not have access to appropriate groups, or when Coloradans are being asked to stay home and stay home. The flexibility that online group counseling offers is also attractive to many people, in that there is no commute time and no need to find a place to park. You might have young children at home or you are unable to leave the house. All you need is internet coverage and a phone or computer for your online group counseling sessions.
