Most men wait too long to get help, or they don’t get it at all. Women are quick to ask for support. Us men tend to think… Its not that bad… I’ll cope…there must be a way of getting through this on my own.
We are strong and often have our own ways of processing difficult life situations. But even men need to get help – as sometimes it gets too much. And especially when it relates to better understanding our emotions and feelings.
Mens counseling is something that is especially important to me – the journey of admiting you are struggling, getting help and learning to talk about your struggles, hopes, ambitions, to stop and ask whether there is more to life than work and struggle, or to realise you are living someone else’s life and to make changes that mean a lot to you – that is also my story. I know how challenging it is and I also know how good it feels to start to live more aligned with what is important to me.
It depends on what your struggling with. In some cases it makes sense to come on your own – e.g. you are not sure what you want from a relationship in the future. In others it is good to come together as a couple – if you are struggling with a negative relationship dynamic, or lots of conflict.
Please call me to discuss what is best for your situation.
