Support Groups

Women Assist Counselling coordinates and facilitates group therapy, peer support groups, psycho education and social inclusion groups, through out the year. Group sessions are led by one or more of our experienced counsellor’s, who teach group members proven strategies for managing specific problems in group work and facilitating group discussions and activities.

Group work assures individuals that they are not alone and that other individuals share similar problems and struggles. Group sessions allow individuals to develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar issues.

Groups can act as a support network. Regularly talking and listening to others also helps you put your own problems in perspective. Many people often feel like they are the only one struggling — but they are not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they’re going through, and realize you’re not alone.

Diversity is another important benefit of group therapy. People have different personalities and backgrounds, and they look at situations in different ways. By seeing how other people tackle problems and make positive changes, you can discover a whole range of strategies for facing your own concerns.
