New from your EFAP - Online Group Counselling

Online group counselling is a form of therapy where multiple participants discuss their similar issue(s) with a counsellor in a private and secure online setting. Group interactions allow participants to build relationships, receive feedback on how to meet goals and overcome challenges and gain encouragement from others.
