Grace Counseling of San Antonio offers a variety of group experiences depending on the need that particular semester (i.e., Domestic Violence, Grief & Loss Support Group). Groups typically involve 1-2 counselors with 8-10 individuals, and they usually meet weekly or biweekly for 60-90 minutes. You control what and how much you share with the group, and we encourage you to share only when you are ready. Group counseling provides you with a unique opportunity to:
o relate with others in a way that can increase self-awareness
o experiment with different ways of interacting
o connect with peers who have similar experiences
o improve your interpersonal relationships
o A commitment to confidentiality is required for participation in group
– Occasionally individuals feel nervous or uncomfortable with the idea of joining groups. This is normal. Pursuing or confronting the things that cause us to feel uneasy can sometimes be the most beneficial way to facilitate change. Grace Counseling of San Antonio recognizes this and, as such, efforts are made to ensure group environments are supportive and safe.
