Benefits of Group Therapy
Group therapy can be highly effective in making positive changes in your life. In group therapy, we focus on a specific area of concern and bring people together who struggle with the same problem. Our groups are led by a therapist atTobin Counseling Group where we create a safe, supportive environment.

The following are current groups available:

What is the Mindfulness Group?
The Mindfulness Group is designed to help participants develop thoughtful skills through direct experience in a small group setting. Practicing mindfulness can help quiet the negative inner voice, reduce daily stress, and help us to feel more at peace. Meetings will incorporate discussion, instruction and practice of mindfulness meditation. The group will meet once a week and will be facilitated by a licensed therapist.

Who will benefit from this group?

  • Individuals who want to learn a new way to cope with daily stress and anxiety
  • Individuals who want to be more “in the present” instead of dwelling on the past or future
  • Individuals who are tired of being preoccupied with worry and other distressing thoughts
  • Individuals who want to find a better way to cope with distractedness at work or home
  • Individuals looking to decrease impulsive behaviors
  • Individuals searching for a sense of calm in their busy life

Where will this group meet?
The group will be held at 180 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 1040. The building is located at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Lake Street with easy access to public transportation.

When will this group meet?
The group will begin Tuesday, March 22, 2016 and will continue weekly for 6 weeks through April 26 from 7:00 p.m.-8:15 p.m.. To achieve the most effective group results, we are asking group participants to commit to all 6 weeks.
