Do you ever feel like a spectator in your own life? Maybe you feel stuck in a pattern of behaviour and don't know how to change it? Do you feel less deserving of the life you desire than everybody else? If this sounds like you and you are ready to explore it further, then get in touch. I have a keen interest in identity, how we see ourselves, and how we see ourselves in relation to others. I provide a safe, non-judgemental environment where we can work through your issues or concerns at your own pace, focussing on your own personal goals. This is your time!

I imagine that whatever has happened to bring you here involves suffering. Whilst therapy can help to consolidate on successes and open up an even brighter future, most of us seek therapy because of a painful sense that all is not well. Whether it is a traumatic life event that brings you here, or difficult experiences from the past that continue to intrude on your present and future; current relationship difficulties or simply a nagging feeling of anxiety or depression, I can really understand your struggles and hope I can help you reconnect to what you love the most, and what can give your life the greatest purpose and meaning.

This has many benefits, not only as it doesn't mean travelling but we also have the options of working in different ways, such as video, email, audio or instant messaging. Sometimes it can reduce anxieties as you can be in a space that feels comfortable for you. I have a particular interest in working with MEN in therapy as I am aware how difficult it can be for a man to seek therapy and talk about their emotions and experiences. My aim is to provide that safe space in which all clients can explore their feelings and emotions.

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.
