It is essential that the environment and all communication in group counseling be safe. Each member is allowed their own journey and process. Healing in groups is a profoundly deep, life-changing opportunity. It is different than community groups, 12- step groups, or small faith-based lead groups. It is therapeutic. The counselors play an important role of keeping the group on track and honoring each person’s individual journey.
At Hedman Counseling Center, we love group counseling. It changes the way we heal from the damage of life.
Individual counseling services are powerful and effective. Often, after some time in individual counseling, it is a good time to move into a new realm of healing in one of our group therapy sessions in Colorado Springs. Because so many of our wounds happen in community, finding a safe community to heal in magnifies the healing power.
Many of us weren’t given the tools early in life to know how to be honest, authentic, or vulnerable and still be SAFE at the same time. We provide tools and experiences to step into this process with great care.
We have found that most people are very anxious about group counseling to begin with, and then they are asking for more group when out time together is up. It changes the way we see the world, others, and ourselves. And the therapist is there to walk beside you at each step.
Don’t hesitate to contact our counseling office about current openings for group therapy sessions in Colorado Springs or new groups beginning soon.
