Group therapy is another form of psychotherapy. Patients are treated in groups , alongside their peers who are also receiving treatment. Members are encouraged to share experiences. This is beneficial as it allows individuals to learn from one another’s experiences. These sessions are ran by a therapist. The groups are traditionally made up of around 4 to 10 people, with sessions lasting approximately an hour.
All forms of psychotherapy can be combined with more alternative therapies, such as yoga, art, and meditation – to really maximise recovery and help the user to explore alternative ways of coping.
