Feedback from our group therapy clients
The group therapy is amazing it gives me a perspective of what others are going through how sometimes the problems .I have are not as big as what I assume them to be or at times how people are also going through the same thing I go through .It’s good to get ways of dealing with situations from others as well. Looking forward to more group therapy sessions.
I have known that group therapy sessions are conducted but a concept of a group session in Hyderabad and especially at pause for perspective is the first of its kind in this city. It came as a breath of fresh air meeting people who not only empathise with you but are unique in their own way. I’m glad to have met people and aarathi and pooja are doing a good job .May these families grow.- Pranati.
Group therapy has opened my mind to new vistas .The major take away is the sense or empathy it has evoked in me.I’ve become less judgmental and more importantly I can understand better where the others person is coming from when they’re agitated or irritated. I recommend group therapy to anyone going through emotional roller coaster because it gives a sense of purpose and helps one place things in perspective.
Group Therapy has always been something in the movies or books, I mean, an alien subject of sorts. I feel like am finally getting a sense of what it means to be a part of group therapy. A safe, non-judgmental zone with people who aren’t too involved in your life which gives them enough space to provide fresh perspective, empathy and support. Group Therapy helps me keep in touch with my own healing process from time to time. The things I listen and take back stay with me for a decent amount of time, like the aroma of a wonderful dish that gets registered in your mind. Look forward to many sessions.
