In today’s fast-paced world, finding a supportive community can make all the difference. Whether you’re navigating personal challenges, seeking professional growth, or simply looking to connect with like-minded individuals, group counselling offers a powerful platform for transformation and support. We’re thrilled to announce that you can now request the creation of custom group counselling sessions tailored to your unique needs.

Custom group counselling allows for the creation of focused, relevant discussions that address specific concerns or interests. This personalised approach ensures that participants get the most out of their experience, benefiting from shared experiences and collective wisdom.


Group counselling provides a sense of community and belonging. Knowing that others are facing similar challenges can offer immense comfort and reassurance. Group members often offer each other encouragement and support, fostering a nurturing environment where participants feel understood and valued.

In a group setting, participants benefit from the diverse perspectives and experiences of others. Hearing different viewpoints can lead to new insights and understanding, helping individuals to see their own situations in a new light and consider alternative approaches to their challenges.

Group counselling helps participants develop better communication skills. Through sharing and listening, individuals learn to express themselves more effectively and empathetically. This improved communication can have positive ripple effects in other areas of their lives, including personal and professional relationships.

Many people struggle with feelings of isolation when dealing with personal issues. Group counselling breaks down these barriers by creating a space where individuals can connect with others who are experiencing similar struggles. This sense of connection can significantly reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Group counselling is often more affordable than individual therapy sessions. This cost-effectiveness allows more people to access the support they need, making mental health care more inclusive and accessible.

The group dynamic creates a natural sense of accountability. Participants are more likely to follow through on their commitments and goals when they know they have the support and encouragement of the group. This accountability can be a powerful motivator for positive change.

Being part of a group helps individuals develop greater empathy and compassion for others. As participants listen to and support one another, they learn to appreciate different perspectives and experiences, fostering a deeper sense of empathy and understanding.


In an increasingly digital world, online group counseLling has become a vital resource for those seeking support and connection. This virtual format offers the same benefits as in-person sessions, with added flexibility and accessibility. Here’s a look at what you can expect from online group counselling.

Convenience: One of the most significant advantages of online group counselling is its convenience. Participants can join sessions from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need for travel and making it easier to fit into busy schedules. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with mobility issues, those living in remote areas, or those with time constraints.

Technology Platforms: Online group counselling typically takes place on secure, user-friendly platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or specialised telehealth software. These platforms provide features such as video conferencing, chat functions, and screen sharing, facilitating a dynamic and interactive group experience.

Privacy and Security: Ensuring privacy and confidentiality is paramount in online counselling. Reputable counselling services, such as Strength Counselling, use secure, encrypted platforms to protect participants’ personal information and discussions. Participants are encouraged to find a private space for their sessions to maintain confidentiality.

Group Dynamics: Just like in-person sessions, online group counselling involves a licensed therapist facilitating discussions among participants. The therapist ensures that everyone has an opportunity to speak, helps guide the conversation, and provides professional insights and support. Group sizes can vary, but typically range from 6 to 12 participants to ensure everyone can participate effectively.

Interaction and Engagement: Online group counselling fosters interaction through video and audio communication. Participants can see and hear each other, creating a sense of presence and connection. Many platforms also offer chat functions, allowing participants to share thoughts and resources in real-time. Breakout rooms can be used for smaller group discussions or activities, enhancing engagement and participation.

Structure and Format: Sessions often follow a structured format, with a clear agenda or topic for discussion. This might include:
● Check-ins: A brief period at the start for participants to share how they’re feeling.
● Main Discussion: Focused on the session’s topic, guided by the therapist.
● Activities: Interactive exercises or role-playing to practise new skills.
● Feedback: An opportunity for participants to reflect on what they’ve learned and share insights.
● Closing: Summarising key points and setting goals for the next session.

Online sessions can accommodate different schedules and time zones, making it easier for participants to join regularly. This flexibility ensures consistent support and continuity of care.

Participants can join from anywhere, allowing groups to bring together diverse individuals with a wide range of perspectives. This diversity can enrich discussions and enhance the learning experience.

Online group counselling can reduce barriers such as transportation issues, childcare needs, and physical disabilities. This inclusivity ensures that more people can access the support they need.

Being in a familiar environment can help participants feel more comfortable and open during sessions. This can lead to more honest and productive discussions.

Online group counselling offers a flexible, accessible, and effective way to connect with others and receive professional support. Whether you’re dealing with stress, seeking personal growth, or looking to build new skills, virtual group sessions can provide the community and guidance you need.
