The feeling of being alive is often taken for granted, or it is assumed will never happen. As a therapy that fosters awareness of self and others, group counseling offers experiences that create the subjective experience of being alive. Embracing opportunities to feel alive cultivate an overall healthy mind and relationships. Coeur d’Alene Counseling’s group process helps women and men become aware of how they relate to others and the roles they take on within their relationships. Helping group members learn to observe how they share similar experience with others allows them the opportunity to realize they are not alone and thus reframe their social problematic dynamics within their relationships while feeling the shift toward self-compassion and self-acceptance. This is what Coeur d’Alene Counseling’s group therapy programs are all about.
Group therapy/counseling leads to change by equipping the critical process of sexual addicts refining their stories. This requires the telling and hearing of their stories which confronts addicts with their own reality and provides the learning environment to integrate new solutions to old problems. Group therapy establishes the connection of similarities, inconsistencies, and anomalies between the stories of everyone’s story thus promoting the opportunity to deeply bond giving each sexual addict a renewed sense of conscience, life satisfaction, and commitment to their recovery.
At Coeur d’Alene Counseling, group therapy is the interaction between addicts toward the goal of achieving and maintaining addiction recovery. What is possibly the most negative force against adult healthy development is the inability to care for and accept care from others, so developing nurturing relationships is foundational to creating freedom from unhealthy behavior.
Group therapy at Coeur d’Alene Counseling is the place where addicts learn the ability and willingness to take care of themselves and to accept care and kindness from others. Moreover, group therapy teaches and models how to accept care as a demonstration that they are worthy of care.
Currently, Coeur d’Alene Counseling offers three different group programs. They are: Gentle Path sex addiction group therapy; Gentle Path multi-addiction group therapy; and Gentle Path couples group therapy. Call for details. 208-755-7114
