5 Ways that Women’s Support Groups Promote Healing

Updated: Jan 22


Women looking to join an online Women's Support Group in Colorado.

If you identify as a woman, are you feeling overwhelmed by life? Are you lacking community? Are you searching for more authentic female connections? Are you feeling a little lost? 


Maybe you resonate with some of these questions. But you’re wondering, “yeah, so what can I do about it?” 


Well, that’s why Catalyss Counseling offers online Women’s Support Groups. These groups give women like you a space to come together to explore these difficult feelings and change patterns that no longer benefit you. 


Maybe this resonates with you, but you’re wondering how a Women’s Support Group can contribute to your unique goals. Continue reading to learn about 5 ways that our Women’s Support Groups Promote Healing.


1.Experience a Safe Group Environment

Our therapists are experienced in group facilitation and they take the time to conduct a free consultation with you to help determine whether the Women’s Support Group is the right fit for you. After assessing fit and signing up for one of our sections of a Women’s Support Group, you can rest assured that each and every member is also a great fit. We do this to ensure group success and safety so that you can show up authentically and vulnerably in ways that support your goals for growth.


2.Build Community with Other Women 

Group therapy is proven to be as effective as individual counseling, especially when one of your goals is to feel less alone. By participating in a Women’s Support Group, you will join a community of supportive women who are struggling with many of the same issues that bring you to the group. Together, you will shift from being isolated and on your own to being part of a community that genuinely cares for one another.


3.Feel Empowered to Use Your Voice

It can be challenging for women to feel confident and safe to use their voice in the world. Many members feel the same way. Through your valuable work in the Women’s Support Group, you will begin to feel empowered to take up the space you deserve.


4.Engage in Meaningful Relationships

As you can probably imagine, you will explore feelings and experiences with fellow members that you may not have done before. Relationship is key to group success, and you will engage in meaningful conversations that expand your understanding of members and yourselves, while also offering and receiving support. It is a truly mutually beneficial relationship, something that we aren’t always lucky to have in our daily lives. 


5.Connect on a Deeper Level

You may find it difficult to explore deeper emotions or difficult situations. Maybe you prefer avoiding them altogether. That’s ok! Members can likely relate and with the support of facilitators, challenge one another’s fears by forging strong connections. 


Consider this quote from Amal Clooney about the importance of women coming together… 


“The worst thing that we can do as women is not stand up for each other, and this is something we can practice every day, no matter where we are and what we do – women sticking up for other women, choosing to protect and celebrate each other instead of competing or criticizing one another.”


Makes sense, right? We live in a world where women are often pinned against each other. When we challenge cultural norms and support one another, the possibilities are limitless.


Want to Join?


Our Women’s Support Groups are closed groups, meaning you’ll meet with the same members each time. We encourage each member to stay in the group as long as it is valuable to them, usually at least 10-12 weeks. Our groups stay small - about 6 folks - so that each woman can connect and get value out of every meeting. We meet online, every other week, and have a few different days and times available.


I hope you’ll consider joining a Women’s Support Group as a new and unique way to work towards your goals for healing. Talk to you soon!
