Group Counseling

Counseling groups are a great way for children and teens to connect and relate over common struggles and issues. They are also a great way to make friends! Group counseling prices are signficantly less than individual counseling sessions ($30/session compared to $125/session), and are therapeutically beneficial in many ways. Many of our counseling groups have been running for over 6 years and have become a community favorite, with many clients asking to come back each year. While the general goals & focus of the groups remain consistent, the group facilitators change from semester to semester, offering a unique experience for our group members each year. To register your child for one of our groups, give us a call today! 713-466-1360

Counseling Group Descriptions: 

Social Language Speech Therapy Groups

Cy-Hope is starting Social Language Groups that will be co-led by our Speech Language Pathologist and one of our counselors. 

The focus of the group will be building social and emotional skills in a small group setting. This will allow your child to learn how to form friendships, communicate effectively and appropriately with peers, and to increase their self-esteem and confidence. 

Keep Calm & Express Yourself - Art Therapy Group

This is a weekly counseling group for high school teens to creatively challenge negative thinking using art as expression. This group will help teens learn to cope with emotions, use positive coping skills, and learn creative and healthy forms of self expression. This group is lead by a licensed counselor intern and will use multiple creative mediums (painting, drawing/sketching, and more) in order to facilitate growth and change. This group is open to all teens. All art materials will be provided.

Making Sense of Emotions from the Inside Out is a fun and interactive therapeutic group, will help children identify their emotions and learn strategies to better manage their reactions.

Activities in this group will encourage children to work through social and emotional situations in a structured and creative environment. The small-group environment will allow for individualized problem solving, as well as having a peer group available to facilitate social situations.

The Friends and Feelings Groups are designed for children in kindergarten through the fifth grade.
