Those who struggle with sexual addiction often become isolated, especially in their battle with addiction. Group therapy offers support from like-minded people who understand what you are going through because they too have struggled. With a tight band of allies who have a common goal, you are never alone. In group counseling for sexual addiction, you can find strength, tools for recovery, and expert guidance for finding freedom and healing from sex addiction.
Sexual Addiction Group Therapy
The Benefit of Gathering Together
One of the greatest benefits of Christian group counseling is being accepted as you are now and supported in your goals. In banding together with others who struggle as you do, a tight-knit support group is formed that can greatly enhance and speed your sexual addiction recovery.
Other benefits of Christian group counseling for sex addiction include:
- New perspectives – Every experience with sexual addiction is different. With each story comes new perspectives, lessons learned, and tools for recovery. Group counseling allows people to share their stories with others, helping one another discover ideas for positive change and growth.
- Discovering connection with others – Sex addiction is often a way of dealing with lack of healthy, connected relationships in the past, but also contributes to the same problem in the present and future. Group counseling helps you form new relationships and gives you tools for strengthening those with partners, family, and friends.
- A place to be heard – Living in secrecy is common when dealing with sexual addiction. Having a safe place to get everything in the open can be a huge relief while also speeding your recovery.
- Lasting support – Group counseling can help you from lasting friendships that help you during tough times so that you can continue to grow and stay non indulgent after counseling ends.
What to Expect in Group Counseling
Before group sessions start, you will have the opportunity to meet with the group counselor one-on-one. At that time, you will be able to talk about your individual reasons for therapy and talk through what you can expect during group sessions.
Group counseling for sexual addiction recovery can include many different methods and activities according to the needs of everyone in the group. You can expect to gain skills for dealing with temptations, controlling unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, and support for preventing relapse. You will also work to build meaningful relationships including working towards a more connected relationship with Christ Jesus.
Confidentiality in Group Counseling Sessions
You will never be forced to share anything that makes you too uncomfortable, but everyone in the group is encouraged to speak freely. Each group member is asked to respect the privacy of the group, and the counselor will work to create a safe, confidential environment where each person feels supported and respected.
