Christian Group Counseling

Going through a struggle, loss, or trauma can feel isolating. Knowing that others know how you feel can help. God encourages believers to help each other through their struggles. Christian group counseling provides a safe place to heal and recover in community.

What is group counseling?

Group counseling at Carlsbad Christian Counseling is exactly what the name implies, counseling in a group. You have the opportunity to gather with a handful of other folks going through the same struggle or trauma as you. One of the counselors at our Carlsbad office will lead the sessions and the entire group will work together towards healing and recovery. We’ll focus on God’s will for each person and help guide each other in the journey too.

Group counseling is often used for the following situations:

  • Addiction

  • Adoption

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Divorce

  • Grief and loss

  • Learning disabilities and special needs

  • Pornography use and addition

  • Postpartum depression

  • Sexual addiction

  • Substance abuse and use

  • Support for partners of addicts, sex addicts, pornography users, infidelity, and more

  • Trauma

  • Weight loss

If you find yourself in a situation where you’d like community, grief counseling may be an option for you. Even if we don’t currently have a group specific to what you’re going through, we may be able to form one.

Group Christian counseling can take place alongside individual counseling too. In some cases, only group counseling is needed, or group and family counseling. The sessions are held in strict confidentiality and specific group counseling techniques are used. Your counselor will help ensure every member is involved to their comfort level and you’ll gain community and support.
