Group counseling is a type of therapy in which a group of people having the similar issues meet and share their experiences. The group counseling sessions provide a supportive environment to the students to discuss their problems and listen to others’ problems.
The sessions are held on a weekly or quarterly basis. The sessions are conducted by expert group counselors who manage the whole group of 5-10 students and arrange activities so that the students enjoy the sessions and feel comfortable. The counselor makes sure that each member of the group takes part in the sessions actively. The feedback of each member of the group is given proper value and all the students are allowed to speak up their mind without any fear.
The group counseling sessions are held with a condition that no member of the group will disclose the conversation with anyone outside. What happens in the group should remain in the session only! This ensures all the members of the groups that no one would make fun of them in the outside world. There is no judging in the group counseling sessions.
