Is it just like a Quaker meeting for crazy folk?

Have you ever attended group psychotherapy? Was it useful? How did it work?

I've been offered group psychotherapy, on the NHS. They feel this would be beneficial to me, so I was happy to give it a go. However, I have reservations on how useful it will be - it seems that a group of people meet, with no agenda other than whatever anyone wishes to discuss, anf the psychotherapist is only there to facilitate rather than lead. I have an image of people sitting in a room not meeting each other's eyes for an hour!
I'd appreciate any experiences, particularly if you undertook it because of social anxiety, difficulty with low self-esteem or issues with past experiences - I have all three of these and this makes me wonder how a group setting will work for me. Throwaway e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
