Group Therapy for the LGBTQ Community in New York City

In group, you can learn how to develop and maintain fulfilling relationships while breaking your patterns of self-defeating behaviors. Many members of the group may be experiencing or grappling with some of the same issues you are—issues or frustrations that can be beneficial to share with others.

One aim of the Life at Your Best group may be to help you socialize better—and it can accomplish this—but that is not necessarily the main goal. Group therapy using the Life at Your Best Plan can help you identify and deal with your emotional blocks and limitations, enabling you to relate better to others, to gain more inner comfort, and to realize your own potential.

Each week in group session, you identify unhealthy patterns you may be repeating, and practice healthier alternatives with other members within the safer environment group therapy provides.

A group consists of 6 to 10 members meeting each week who have things in common and who can be helpful partners for each other’s growth. The therapist guides the discussion, providing a productive examination of the issues or concerns affecting each member. Group members are encouraged to talk with each other spontaneously and honestly. Much of the learning comes from the interactions between members as they work to defeat negative thoughts, manage emotions, and develop healthy behaviors.

  • Group therapy at the Life at Your Best Plan serves as a microcosm of reality and is an ideal place to solve real issues. Week after week, you create your own impasses in the group, in virtually the same ways as outside the group, blocking friends, lovers, associates, and relatives. Group therapy is a theatre of study and change
  • When you speak in a group, words can echo more loudly in your mind. You can also see how other members respond to your behavior
  • You may use group as a main treatment, or work simultaneously in both group and individual ther-apy to stimulate growth in mutually complementary ways
