Group therapy in Toronto
Having an opportunity to share your experiences and pain with others who have walked in your shoes is validating and offers the opportunity to build community. Feeling connected is a basic human need and can be found in therapeutic groups where you work on similar issues and support each other.
Some of the themes of the therapy groups in Toronto that I offer include: the concept of leaving a legacy at the end of your life, grief and loss, addictions, depression, anxiety and trauma. Group members participate and engage with each other and with me through discussion and art making activities related to specific themes.
This kind of sharing can lead to a sense of belonging and help to develop self-confidence and connection plus work on presenting issues.
