Group therapy workshops

By offering additional social support and motivation, group therapy workshops can be an valuable and cost-effective form of treatment for some people.

Lawson Clinical Psychology are big advocates of group therapy workshops. Not only are groups more cost-effective for you (as the fee per hour is much lower than for individual sessions), making mental health care more accessible, but research shows that group therapy can be as effective as individual treatment, for a range of psychological concerns.

Group therapy can also provide the opportunity to meet others who are experiencing similar difficulties and to learn that you are not alone. Courage can be contagious and being in a supportive group can also give us a motivation boost to help us make changes in our lives. You may even inspire someone else in the workshop to make changes as well!

Our current group-therapy workshops are:

  • Strong foundations for OCD
  • Break free from OCD with ERP for adults
  • Break free from OCD for teens
  • Overcome overthinking and worry
  • Circle of Security parenting
