You are not alone in your struggles. And accepting the support of others through group counseling will help you in your path towards recovery.
Whether you are struggling with body image issues, a mental health disorder, or any number of issues, you may feel isolated. When going through a challenging time, it’s all too easy to feel like you are the only one dealing with your particular struggles.
But while your exact experiences will always be unique to you, there are still many people who can relate to aspects of what you’re going through. And those people likely feel alone as well.
Group counseling is an ideal environment to hear from others with similar life experiences. You will have the space to hear their stories, and share your own. And you can help each other look at your similar circumstances in a new light.
Generally, you will have a choice between support and therapy groups. Support groups are usually more educational, and do not need to be led by a licensed therapist. Therapy groups do need a licensed therapist leading, and often deal with complex emotional processing.
If you are already seeing a therapist one on one, they can help you decide what would work best for you. Both support and therapy groups offer a place to explore common ground. Choosing a group is ultimately dependent on your personal needs.
You have a wide variety of groups to choose from at Bricolage Wellness:

No matter your personal struggles, you are not alone. In group counseling, we hope to provide a space for you and others to work through challenges together, and lean on each other for the support you deserve.
Our Expert Clinicians

Here’s what to expect when you work with us:
Free Phone Consult:
At Bricolage, we extend a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we are a good fit to work together. We will discuss what your goals are, explain what therapy will look like, and how your life will be different after working with us. By the end of this call, you will have
a clear idea of your next steps.
Your first meeting with your therapist will be between 60 and 70 minutes and will allow the two of you to begin to build a relationship.
You will go over the information you provided before this initial session as well as dive into all of the elements of your story. Throughout
this appointment, you and your therapist will work as a team to create your action plan.
Once you and your therapist begin to work deeply together, you will experience a type of treatment that has been completely tailored
to you and your needs. Your therapist will take keen notice of where you are in your wellness journey and ensure that the exercises you complete in session will bring you a sense of comfort and peace as you move forward.
Completion of Goals
As a team, you and your therapist will continue to evaluate your progress and growth. Eventually, the two of you will recognize that you
are responding to stressors more effectively and that weekly therapy might no longer be necessary. At this point you can choose to come to session less often and together you will decide what level of support you need for the future.
