As we are thrown into the thick of life, it is our response to these circumstances which reveal who we are and where we may want to go. As life is anything but a linear process - we may often stumble or get stuck along the way. We may even describe the stumbling blocks as anxiety, depression, numbness or even shame. Some of our work could involve examining those stumbling blocks and challenging your ideas, choices and reasoning processes. I encourage you to remain open to all aspects and stimulate you to consider ones often overlooked.

Do you often feel broken? Or feel like you're never enough? These common thoughts often cross many of our minds, yet some of us are unable to shake it off. Some may feel it’s all they have ever lived with, this sense of not being enough for those around us. Having poor confidence and low self-esteem can be debilitating to live with. Daily life can become crippled with anxiety. You may find you always talk down or minimise yourself and struggle take pride in anything you do. As a qualified therapist with 9 years experience in CBT, I take great pride in my job and believe it is a privilege to be able to help and support others.

Our lives begin like a ball of wool , as the wool reels out so do our lives. We hope to reel out this wool to the end without encountering any major complications, or none that we cannot deal with ourselves. However, life doesn’t always turn out the way we plan. Sometimes life throws us a curveball, the wool gets twisted or knotted. Sometimes the reel gets too heavy for us to carry.Many of us can correct these temporary setbacks ourselves when they accrue, however there are times when we become overwhelmed with these curveballs and need a helping hand.

Life brings a wide range of experiences that can feel overwhelming. This can sometimes leave us feeling as though there is nowhere to go to consider these feelings. Therapy offers a space that may help with an understanding to something going on which relates to the past. Equally our feelings could be recent concern’s leaving it very difficult to know what to do next.

What will you notice that will tell you that therapy has been useful? Solution focused brief therapy involves identifying and developing effective solutions to the issues clients are experiencing. In our sessions we will work in partnership to establish your best hopes for therapy. We will identify and explore how to make effective use of your personal strengths, experiences and resources through informed decision-making. In my experience, effective management of feelings of anxiety and depression, and the impact of low self-esteem and self-confidence all figure highly as 'best hopes for therapy'.

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.
