Available as Face-to-Face Therapy only
Group therapy offers opportunities to give and receive support, while enhancing our ways of relating.
Navigating your way through life can feel like an uphill struggle. As men, we have mostly learned that society expects us to be strong and silent or bold and brazen. Any signs of emotion may be seen as marks of weakness, rather than valid forms of expression. Over time, these messages may have become internalised. You may have learned to silence your feelings and face your struggles alone. You keep your thoughts concealed rather than risking being vulnerable. As pressure reaches its peak, the cacophony of sound around you has muted the voice within. When you look in the mirror, you no longer know who you are.
When life gets to this point, where can you turn for help?
Mens therapy groups provide a welcome space to be with others. Knowing you are far from alone in your experience is reassuring. As men, when we learn to share ourselves with others, we also speak up. We can cry, scream and express ourselves without the pressure of holding back. We can explore emotions as they arise, and discover other ways of relating. We accept ourselves in the moment. The therapy space becomes a sanctuary where it is safe to express our deepest fears, and openly voice our self-doubts. When we are heard, held and accepted, we offer this gift to ourselves, and enhance our relationships with others.
Group sizes typically range from 5-10 members, offering a broad range of views to draw from.
