Group therapy is effective because it is a means of grace that God has promised—where two or more are gathered in His name, there He is among them (Matthew 18:20). When we understand one another in real Christian fellowship, the Lord inclines His ear to us and is pleased.
“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down upon the beard, upon the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life for evermore.” – Psalm 133:1-3
In Christ-Centered group counseling the purpose is to bring biblical healing for spiritual, psychological and relational problems. It is also to teach and encourage spiritual and personal growth in the life of the participants. The therapy group becomes a Christian community where healing takes place, support is available and Christ is experienced in the healing and recovery process of group members. Not only do participants receive tremendous understanding, support, and encouragement from others facing similar issues, but they also gain different perspectives, ideas, and viewpoints on those issues. The counselor leading the group brings years of counseling expertise in leading clients to freedom and peace. The counselor will also provide group rules that bring safety for all participants. Group therapy is widely used and has proven to be an effective way to receive counseling.
Group therapy is economical because the payment for the sessions is shared and divided among the participants. The sessions are usually more affordable by splitting the fee among group members.
Here are just a few group therapy topics we offer:
– Marriage Support
– Anger management
Additionally, this method of counseling is highly effective for marriages as well, as several couples can split the cost, allowing each couple the opportunity for growth at an affordable rate.
