hesitant about groups?

As recovering perfectionists, we understand. Groups can be intimidating for you! Having to show up as your perfect self and meet people you don't know can surely cause you some anxiety! Although, this is exactly what this group is geared towards, managing your anxiety caused by high expectations. Everyone else joining the group is likely to feel the same way you so, which is why we talk openly about our anxiety during the group sessions itself. This promotes connection between the group members and puts your anxiety all out there in the open.

Wanting more information about groups? Well, research tells us that group counseling is as effective as individual counseling for a variety of issues, including anxiety, high-achievement, and perfectionism. Our Recovering Perfectionists Group is for you and others like you who are feeling isolated and lonely, and just want to feel some positive emotions for once. We believe in this group so much that we even wrote an article specifically about the benefits of group counselingThe Surprising Benefits of Group Therapy.
