Group Counseling

Recognizing that being in the presence of others is vital to learning and growth, Sequence offers both traditional therapy groups and support groups. The distinguishing factor is the degree of focus on mental health issues, the background of the facilitator, and the coverage of fees by a health insurance provider. Sequence offers group therapy as an addition to individual therapy, or in some cases, as a stand-alone service. Group therapy is insurance reimbursable and offers a more complex and relational method of therapeutic support, enhancing the growth and development of participants in important ways that lead to long-lasting positive effects. Sequence also at times offers "support groups" which may be led by a member of our professional life coaching team and focus on issues such as stress management, wellness, career or other specific areas of concern,

Our list of current groups offered is below. Please scroll down for details. 

To register for a group call 240-200-5401 ext 3, or email to info@sequenceservices.com and the group facilitator will reply

 


SUPPORT GROUPS


4 Week Support Group "Leading Through Crisis"

Being a leader always brings its challenges – but what we are currently going through is like nothing any leader has ever seen before. Threats to health, economic upheaval, cultural shifts and multiple perspectives, how can you chart a safe course through the storm?

In addition to our own worries for our families, ourselves and the world, leaders must also worry about our businesses, our employees and our clients. We must plan for the future while addressing the present, and we must create a zone where others can continue to function well.

How do we set priorities? How do we balance the magnitude of all these stressors? How do we stay calm and grounded, and lead by example? How do we avoid "decision fatigue" and replenish our ability to be creative and aware of possibilities. How do we make tough choices and follow our intuition in such uncharted waters?

In just one hour a week, we will share some essential information to help you understand how humans deal with crisis situations, how to stay well under immense stress and pressure, and how to turn crisis into opportunity with courage and grace.

There will be discussion, interactive exercises and mutual encouragement. You will leave each session with homework to practice, and useful tools to use.

Give yourself the gift of the support you deserve through these challenging times!!!

When: Four week support groups meets online Fridays at noon.

All participants will receive an email like to log in to Zoom in advance of the weekly meeting.

Fee: 50.00 per session
