Talk without a bunch of questions.
Talk without all the emotions.
Talk to a guy.
Sometimes you don’t want to talk at all.
Sometimes you just need to hang out.
That’s why you should try THERAPY . . . but for GUYS.
I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. You already have some strengths that you’ve used before, that for whatever reason isn’t working right now. You might feel so overwhelmed that this problem is making it difficult to access your past strengths. I’ll help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now.
What’s the difference between talking to you or a friend or family member?
The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others knowing your business. If your situation makes you feel negative emotions then confiding in a friend or family member creates a risk that once you are feeling better, you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my approach to your specific needs.
How long will it take?
I suggest weekly sessions to start and then we will discuss what is best for you. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time that therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
