What do I talk about in Group Counseling?

Discuss whatever problems brought you to the counseling center or those that you are currently experiencing. It is important to let group members know how you are feeling and whether you want support or feedback from them or whether you  just want to share your experience.

Give support and feedback to other group members when they share their problems or concerns. Even if you have not experienced the exact same problem, you can help by giving your support and understanding.

You will get out of group counseling what you put into it. People who report having the most rewarding experiences are often those who open up, or self-disclose, in group. There is no pressure to share your feelings or talk about your problems, but often taking the risk of sharing benefits both you and other group members.
