I'm shy and worried that I won't talk in group counseling. Would group counseling still be helpful for me?

Many people come to group counseling because they are shy and uncomfortable in group situations. Often people struggling with shyness are worried about what other people think about them, but never are able to ask. 

Group counseling can be a safe and confidential place to work on these feelings and ask other people for honest feedback. 

Even if you do not talk much in group, you can benefit from listening to others. You might find you have a lot in common with people you would have never talk with outside of group counseling.
