One of the core principles in Cognitive Psychotherapy states that the way in which people understand, explain and conceptualize the problems they suffer in life is itself a big part of those problems. You might be feeling anxiety as a consequence of overthinking, you might be experiencing your mood going down after using certain concepts or words to define yourself, you might be feeling frustrated after a relationship didn't work out as you expected... In all cases your mind plays a main role, and the way how your thoughts connect with your emotions and create certain behaviours forms patterns that we can discuss in a safe space.

Are you tired of feeling anxious, of worrying, of being stressed out? Are you tired of feeling powerless in the face of problems in your relationships, at work, in your family etc.? Are you tired of regularly acting in ways that you know are not in your best interests, out of fear of being judged by others (or by yourself) or plain self-sabotage? Are you tired of avoiding dealing with your problems only to see them recur in your life, albeit in new and more refined ways? Are you tired of being depressed, feeling like things can never change? If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you have come to the right place.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
