Men face unique challenges and pressures in their everyday lives, particularly regarding how to deal with and communicate feelings.
This belief system that men are somehow less manly or weak for showing emotions has caused generations to question the inner experience they have struggled with making meaning throughout life.
At Well Beings Counselling, our therapists can help you learn the reasons, create a plan, and give you practical tools and techniques to manage your emotions.
Regardless of its Cause, Therapy Can Help Men
What You May Be Experiencing
Although most are encouraged from a young age to be strong and toughen up, men also feel strong emotions. It is not a weakness but a sign of strength.
Stop yelling, hiding, and blaming. The pressures to fit the mold might be wearing you down. Counselling can help.
In life, we all experience different concerns that are worth exploring. Whether it be in the aspects and stages of our relationships with others or even just getting through each day-to-day task; men can benefit from having someone they trust by their side during these times which will make them feel more confident about themselves overall.
At Well Beings, we implement Evidence-Based Practices that have been proven by research to be effective. We specialize in male-focused depression, anxiety, trauma and emotional regulation.
Because men are often reluctant to acknowledge emotional problems, mental health disorders in men go undiagnosed. This situation has been called a “silent crisis.”
According to Statistics Canada, men are more than three times more likely to commit suicide than women, and middle-aged persons (aged 40-59) have the highest suicide rates in Canada. Suicide Prevention Canada’s website states that there is a “hidden epidemic” among middle-aged men concerning suicide.
Men and mental health
Many men face internal struggles, and many want to ask for help. However, many do not ask because they are afraid of looking weak. We want you to know that these struggles do not make you less of a man.
