What Is Group Therapy for Anxiety?
In group therapy for anxiety, you are not alone. You’re surrounded by individuals who are going through the same experiences.

It is a powerful tool in your mental health journey, offering solace, building resilience, and nurturing a supportive community that understands and empathizes with your struggles. Group therapy for anxiety can help those who may feel alone to find those who understand.
