4 Ways To Enhance Your Group Therapy Progress When You’re By Yourself

Updated: Oct 13, 2019

How to make progress when you're by yourself

Group therapy is an excellent choice when you are seeking a built-in community to support your mental health goals. However, you can enhance your therapy progress even more if you apply what you learn when you are not in your group sessions. Here are a few ways you can bring your group therapy progress into your everyday life to experience even more powerful results.

Take (And Review) Your Group Therapy Notes

Do you take notes during your group therapy sessions? If not, why not try it? They don’t have to be complicated notes. As long they jog your memory, you’re doing great. Jot down a few notes during your next session, and (very important!) take some time to review your notes that day, and then at least a few times before your next session. Doing so will give you more clarity and reinforcement so you successfully apply group therapy principles into your day-to-day life.

Keep A Journal

Keeping a journal is an extremely powerful way to supercharge your group experience. And it’s very simple: just write down your thoughts, feelings, fears, hopes, what you did that day, what upset you, what empowered you… or anything at all. It doesn’t need to be complicated – and it doesn’t even have to make a lot of sense. Over time, you’ll consciously observe patterns and connections, as well as stimulating your unconscious mind – both of which will help you create desired changes in your life.

Make Time For Relaxation

After group therapy, it’s always a good idea to find some time to relax, which can be as simple as listening to music; doing some simple breathing exercises or meditation; or a peaceful walk. Therapy can be a challenging process as you confront your feelings, work through stressful situations, and grow as a person. As beneficial as all that work is, it’s important to acknowledge and counterbalance that challenge with relaxation.
