Group therapy has been shown to be as effective as individual therapy, with the advantage of forming relationships with other individuals who have similar experiences.

The connections that form between group members, sharing of information and power of being in a group have all been found to enhance the effectiveness of the therapeutic process. Group therapy has been found to be effective for OCD, anxiety, depressive disorders and many other presenting issues.

Why Choose Group Therapy: Because it works!

In considering joining group therapy or a workshop, people often have questions about the effectiveness and benefits of doing therapy as part of a group. A recent, large scale literature review by The Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy shows that the results and benefits of group therapy compare favourably to those of individual therapy. This review supports our long-held belief in the positive results we see first hand for our group and workshop clients.

Why Choose Group Therapy: To Build A Sense Of Community!

When you choose to engage in group therapy, you become part of a community. You are able to share experiences with other individuals who have similar thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

You will likely feel less alone in these difficult experiences and embrace the power of the group as part of what helps get you on the road to recovery and wellness.

Why Choose Group Therapy: Because it’s Cost-Effective!

People often face many kinds of pressures, including financial ones. This is why we are pleased to offer groups that are very cost-effective when compared to individual therapy. Group therapy can offer you foundational skills that will provide new ways of coping and managing anxiety, depression, and other challenges that you might be facing.

If you wish to do so, individual therapy can often be engaged afterward as a way to deepen the learning and work that has taken place. We also offer individual therapy sessions alongside group therapy to make for a highly effective therapeutic package of services. 

At FTPS, group therapy is conducted within small closed groups to allow for clients to share powerful experiences as they learn important information about their presenting issues, build key coping strategies for recovery and enhance ongoing skill development.
