You suffer and bear your pain in silence.
You stare at the ceiling and wish that someone with similar feelings could show you the way out and help you save yourself.
Your heart echoes like an empty warehouse, and the sound reverberates from the emptiness that has become your loneliness. The loneliness swallows you slowly but surely like quicksand and threatens to drown you if something doesn’t change soon.
The walls that provide refuge and keep you isolated from your world feel like they are beginning to close in on you. You can’t take it anymore, but what else can you do? Who can understand what you are going through or the problems that you face?
In times of struggle, it is easy to feel completely alone and isolated, like there is no possible way for anyone to understand what we are going through. The result of this way of thinking causes prolonged emotional and mental pain, confusion, and suffering.
“Pain is inevitable, Suffering is optional.”
– Haruki Murakami
Here’s what we have to offer.
At Divine Mind Therapeutics, we offer therapist-facilitated groups for men, women, and couples.
We conduct our Groups virtually and meet for two hours, twice per week. One or both licensed therapists facilitate our groups, which consists of 10 members.
Confidentiality is of utmost importance for any therapeutic treatment but is critical for group therapy. This solidarity among group members around maintaining confidentiality makes the Group a safe place to share, be seen, and heard.
In our Group, we will explore, learn, and grow together as we discuss topics that range from improving social skills, helping people deal with various issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness, low self-esteem, and so much more.
How will you benefit?
Group therapy is a powerful and beneficial treatment for everyone.
The Group works by supporting participants through hearing the stories and experiences of others that are similar, helping them feel more connected and less like an outcast.
Group therapy is the perfect setting to gain social, interpersonal, and communication skills, build relationships, and incite accountability.
Here, you will receive space for the vulnerable expression of emotions, thoughts, and insights as other members offer non-critical and nonjudgmental feedback, helping you see how you are coming off to those around you.
Try these steps to maximize your experience in group therapy.
Take a pledge. Commit to the process, set intentions for yourself and what you want to get out of the Group. You will receive a contract that spells out our expectations of you. Knowing these expectations can help you overcome any fears about participating.
Participate. You might have days when you don’t feel like talking, and that’s fine, but the more you contribute, the more you’ll get out of it.
Share. Your experiences might be meaningful to someone else, and you’ll find that helping others helps you, too.
Stop hiding your pain in silence.
You are not alone in your pain because others also suffer in silence. Working in a group allows you to express how you feel while providing feedback and support.
Telling your story is the beginning of healing.
Take the pledge and join the Group!
