Group Counselling

Group counselling can be defined as discussions or services done by a qualified counsellor who deals with multiple individuals at once.

The counsellor helps the each person individually, resolving any issues and guiding them in the right direction or by allowing the individuals to help each other. Group counselling is an important aspect of addiction treatment and recovery. It involves a group of individuals who come together to discuss and support one another in their path towards sobriety. In these counselling sessions, you will meet others who are facing similar challenges and can share their experiences and wisdom with you.

Connect Confidentially

The history of group counselling in addiction treatment dates back to the early 20th century when Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) was founded. AA introduced the concept of peer support through group meetings, which proved to be highly effective in helping individuals overcome alcohol addiction. Since then, group counselling has become a widely recognised and widely used approach in rehab centers and addiction recovery programs.

In group counselling, you can expect to participate in structured discussions facilitated by a trained counsellor or therapist. The group setting provides a safe and supportive environment where you can openly talk about your struggles, victories and lessons learned. Listening to others, you will gain insight into different perspectives and coping strategies, which can be valuable in your own recovery.

Group counselling offers several benefits. Firstly, it helps you realise that you are not alone in your struggles with addiction. Connecting with others who share similar experiences can be comforting and encouraging. Secondly, you can learn from the experiences of others and gain new strategies for dealing with cravings, triggers and other challenges that arise during recovery. Lastly, group counselling cultivates a sense of accountability and responsibility as you share your progress and setbacks with the group, motivating you to stay committed to your sobriety goals.

To get the most out of group counselling, it’s important to actively participate and engage with the group. You may be encouraged to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences but it is entirely up to you how much you want to disclose. The confidentiality of group counselling sessions is typically emphasised to create a safe space for everyone involved.
