What is Men’s Counseling?
Everyone has problems.
If you are a man reading this, counseling might be something you’ve never considered because you thought, “That’s not what men do and, as a man, I should be able to solve things on my own.” However, Einstein said,
“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
Having a licensed counselor to assist in the process of addressing your specific issues allows you to gain a new perspective and overcome the problems you’re facing.
Problems are opportunities for growth and change.
What Can I Expect with Men’s Counseling?
“TACKLE the ROOT CAUSE not the EFFECT.”
“The first thing you have to know is yourself. A man who knows himself can step outside himself and watch his own reactions like an observer.” – Adam Smith, The Money Game
Expect to be challenged.
If your behavior, perception, motivation, and choices don’t align with your stated values and beliefs it can create tension. This tension can show up as fatigue, aggression, anxiety, depression, and addictive habits. Counseling helps to align your values and beliefs with your actions so you can live a more fulfilled life.
As you apply the new insights and tools you learn in counseling, change will come. You can expect to gain greater self-awareness and decision making skills that will improve relationships, increase confidence, enhance communication skills, decrease stress and anxiety, and identify the things in life that matter the most. As this change occurs, you will have a counselor that understands your objectives and will assist you along the way toward accomplishing your goals.
