Space still available in for group starting September 28th!
Young Adult Social Anxiety Group
It’s time to take control of your life back from social anxiety.
If you’re ready to take on the task, together we can give you back the power to make your life what you want it to be.
Why group therapy?
Group therapy for social anxiety is especially effective for a couple of reasons. First, you get to meet other people who struggle as you do. Social anxiety, obviously, is a very isolating condition, but group counseling allows you to meet other people who are in the same boat as you. Simply feeling less alone in your experience will help. Secondly, you’ll be able to practice real life skills in a group that you just couldn’t do on your own or in individual therapy.
Limiting the group by age will further aid in recovery from social anxiety.
Okay, that sounds good, but what exactly happens in the group?
Each group will consist of learning and practicing new skills, including presentations, small talk, working in small groups, and interviewing. Other activities will include learning some cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to help manage anxious thoughts and feelings of negative self-worth.
The first session
During the first session, we will make name cards, introduce ourselves, and create group rules. I will provide some education on social anxiety and you can indicate which parts of social anxiety affect you. If you know your name and can indicate agreement or disagreement then you have everything you need to conquer social anxiety.
Why are you the right person to help me?
I know the pain of social anxiety and I know how hard it was to escape it. So there's that.
Besides being licensed, I have years of experience facilitating groups, including therapy, support, and self-help groups.
My own personal sense of fairness means that I will do everything in my power to create an inclusive and emotionally safe space for each member of the group.
When, where, and how much?
Next group is starting September 28th in Ricardson, TX at 7 pm until 8:30 pm.
Cost is $50 per session for six sessions. Payment is mandatory even if you don't attend all sessions.
Each group takes on a personality of their own, but each group will be inclusive. Hate speech will not be tolerated.
