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 the 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.
