We now see as many male clients as female. In a society where men can be reluctant to ask for help, that’s a great sign.
Although women are more likely to be diagnosed with depression, men are three times more likely to kill themselves. This points to a distressing reality: that men are less inclined to get support when they are struggling.
There is nothing weak or unmanly about coming to therapy. It is healthy, challenging and can make a huge difference to many areas of life. And therapy can be about anything.
Being male in today’s society
Society’s expectations for men include being confident, strong, forceful and competitive. Although this stereotype is increasingly being challenged, there is still a perception that men should be strong and unemotional. When men show their feelings, they are told to ‘man up’. These expectations can put a lot of pressure on men, but again they are expected to just deal with it and not show emotion.
There is no limit on what men can discuss in personal therapy. Our affordable counselling service provides a confidential place where men can discuss their concerns privately.
Why men seek counselling
There is no aspect of your life that we can’t support you with. Common reasons men come for counselling include concerns about:
- anger and aggression
- sex and intimacy, including erectile dysfunction and infidelity
- sexuality (gay or bisexual feelings)
- porn, gambling, internet issues
- substance and alcohol use
- self-confidence or assertiveness issues
- work stress and careers
