Vittoria shares her own personal struggles with an eating disorder and the difficulty in obtaining therapy that worked and how she found group therapy and how difficult finding this was. This was a clear need and became the foundation of Sesh.

Group therapy is probably best known in the addiction space with Alcoholics Anonymous. But the concept of group therapy has been successfully used in many areas but the lack of therapists and the challenge of access have limited this till now.

Sesh has created easily accessible group sessions for a wide range of areas including parenting, anxiety, depression, relationships, and trauma, and is demonstrating incredible success based on the feedback from their clients.

Listen in to hear what critical elements contribute to success in their therapy and hear the incredible reductions in depression and anxiety they are showing from a relatively small number of sessions.
