Group Therapy

group therapy in Colorado

Here at Catalyss Counseling, we love groups! We have seen firsthand how beneficial groups are, and how groups members can help change lives. Group therapy can help with a variety of issues, and can often-times be more powerful and life-changing than just individual work. The sense of belongingness, the connections you make with others who have a shared experience, and the support you give to and get from the group members can truly be inspiring. 

Group Therapy Online

Some of our groups are offered online, 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.

In-Person group therapy in colorado

Yes! We offer in-person therapy groups at our Denver-based office in Englewood, Colorado. For those of you that have virtual fatigue or prefer to engage in group counseling in-person, our Relationship Process Group would be a good option. One benefit of in-person groups are that you can build in-the-moment relationships with other group members in real-world ways. In addition, in-person groups help you to build confidence in your socialization with others so you can transfer what you learn in group to the outside world.

Group therapy vs individual therapy

If you've landed here, you're already interested in doing group therapy or group counseling. However, there are actually many benefits to doing group therapy as opposed to individual therapy. Check out our chart below to compare group counseling versus individual therapy.

Benefits of Individual Therapy:

  • ​You learn how to understand and cope with emotions

  • Helps to manage troublesome symptoms

  • Receiving one-on-one attention from your therapist

  • Develops a strong alliance between yourself and your therapist

  • Can dive deep into what is going on with you

  • Best if you have severe social anxiety or extreme trauma

Benefits of group Therapy:

  • Develops a built-in support system

  • Is cheaper than individual therapy

  • Helps you feel less alone as you discover others with similar struggles

  • You learn to relate to people in a healthy way

  • Provides a safe place to be open and vulnerable

  • Offers accountability to the group to reach your goals

  • Exposes you to different perspectives on your situation

FAQs about Group Therapy:

Who will be in my group?

We carefully screen each potential group member, including you, to make sure that everyone in the group is the right fit for the group. This is done through an initial Group Screening/Intake appointment that you'll set up with our scheduling coordinator, between yourself and the group facilitator. All of our groups are geared towards a particular topic(s) or category of person, so we make sure up front that you're in the right group for you.  

Will I have to talk?

Part of the expectation of being a group member is participation, in whatever manner fits you best. However, the group facilitator will help create a safe and supportive group environment where you feel comfortable participating so you can get the most out of your group experience.

Is group counseling confidential?

Absolutely. At the start of each group, we discuss "group rules" that all group members agree to abide by. One of those rules is confidentiality, and that everything talked about in the group, stays in the group. Group members who do not follow these rules may be asked to leave.

How much does group therapy cost?

Most groups are between $60-$70 per group session (exception: Grad Student Support Group is $25/session), and there is a $150 initial Group Screening/Intake appointment so you can get to know your group facilitator and we can make sure you're in the right group. Some of our groups are time-limited and 10-12 sessions long, and some are open-ended, meaning that you can stay for longer than 8 sessions.  Research shows that a minimum of 8 sessions is the ideal length of time for you to get benefits from group therapy. Total cost for 8 sessions of group plus the initial screening/intake appointment is between $630-$750, which is significantly cheaper than 8 sessions of individual therapy.

online group therapy in colorado

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 areas and do not have access to appropriate groups, or when you are being asked to stay home and not congregate in groups. 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.

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.
