Frequently Asked Questions
About Group Therapy Sessions
Individual therapy focuses on a one-on-one relationship between the therapist and the client, addressing the client’s specific concerns and needs. In contrast, group therapy involves multiple clients participating in a group setting, allowing for shared experiences, learning from one another, and developing connections with other group members.
Group therapy session can be beneficial for individuals dealing with various mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or relationship issues. If you feel that sharing your experiences and learning from others in a supportive environment might be helpful, group therapy could be a good fit for you.
Research has shown that telehealth group therapy can be just as effective as in-person sessions, with the added benefits of increased accessibility and convenience. Participants can engage in therapy sessions from the comfort of their own homes, making it easier for those with limited transportation or other barriers to attend.
We prioritise the privacy and security of our clients. Our telehealth psychologist in Australia platform uses encryption to protect all communication between group members and therapists.
The frequency of group therapy sessions varies depending on the specific group, but most groups meet once a week for about 1 to 2 hours per session. This regular schedule allows for consistent progress and support throughout the treatment process.
