Group therapy requires a different approach. Groups provide a community of support that gives a person multiple perspectives in safe and welcoming environments.*
E5 Therapy gives group members the environment needed, to process their individual thoughts, feelings, and concerns. The therapist uses known tools, time, and group members' strengths to help everyone gain self understanding. With a ten-person group size limit, the extended format of group sessions (90 minutes) provides all group members time to process their thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
PTSD Support Group
This open ended process group can provide alternative perspectives from understanding people that struggle and thrive differently. This group provides growth opportunities not available in one-on-one counseling. The therapist provides structure, support, and safety to all members. The first rule: “Never compare traumas.”
Trauma Focus Group
This is a highly structured group, focusing on one or more traumatic events. Listening step-by-step through all phases of life including impactful traumatic events, each group member checks in and the meeting is dedicated to one person each week. 90 minutes gives time for processing, feedback, and repair for the person telling their story. A closed, family like, group, these members find themselves bonded in support and sense of familiarity over approximately 18 months of weekly group sessions.
*Group counseling is not right for everyone and requires an initial evaluation to ensure proper fit into groups.
