Individual Therapy is a method for addressing mental health, emotional, or behavioral problems by talking with psychotherapist one on one.

Group therapy is a type of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time, each of whom shares common goals and challenges.
Working in a group provides many advantages:

- Group members can serve as role models to other members of the group. By seeing someone who is successfully coping with a problem, other members of the group can see that there is hope and recovery is possible.
- Group therapy offers a safe haven. This setting allows people to practice behaviors and actions within the safety and security of the group.
