Teen Support Groups
Therapy support groups for teens in Ipswich provide support during the transitional period where teens can bring up issues of independence and self-identity in a supportive environment.

Group therapy brings adolescents together who struggle with similar issues. It creates a safe space for teens to connect and support one another, while learning beneficial skills from an experienced therapist who serves as the group leader. Group therapy is an option that teens should consider as a powerful therapy alternative.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Ipswich Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Ipswich is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counsellor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Ipswich are usually facilitated by a therapist or counsellor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
