Seeking Safety Group Therapy

When you think about the term safety, you are likely to think about protecting yourself from physical aggression and violence from others. However, The New Hope Mental Health Counseling Services Seeking Safety Group Therapy (SSGT) focuses on the type of safety we must implement and manage so we can make healthy decisions that will protect us from intentionally putting ourselves in harm’s way.


For example, we tend to take for granted the importance of sleep and its role in maintaining healthy brain functioning so we can make healthy decisions. Ongoing sleep disruption may become chronic and can cause you to experience emotional distress with the potential to make irrational decisions. Indeed, a lack of sleep can be painful as the downstream effect result in symptoms of insomnia, sleep-related anxiety, and more. This SSGT addresses the importance of sleep hygiene to help you avoid the pain associated with poor decisions and improve your sleep quality.
