L2S Support Groups and Group Therapy
Group therapy takes many forms. The groups are variously referred to (often interchangeably) as L2S counselling groups, L2S support groups, L2S mutual support groups or peer support groups, self help groups, stress coping groups, workshops and mental health groups. They are moderated by a professional group counsellor, group therapist or group psychologist and generally focus on a specific issue or client profile (e.g. men or women etc).

Before joining a L2S support group, first see if the group's issue focus is consistent with your needs. If there are no groups offering support around your issue, feel free to contact these professionals in L2S to ask for a referral to alternative groups nearby.
What to expect in a L2S group?
In a professionally operated support group in L2S, members provide each other with various types of help for a particular shared issue. The help takes the form of relating personal experiences and listening to and accepting others' experiences. L2S group members may also provide a sympathetic understanding and a social network.

Group therapists or group counsellors lead or facilitate the group and provide group counselling in L2S. They are sometimes specifically trained in group dynamics and the understanding of small group processes. So 'interpersonal learning', which can involve unfiltered feedback and confrontation between group members (and can be threatening) is safely moderated by the group therapist or group counsellor in L2S.
