I’m an integrative Counsellor with 13 years experience of working with a wide range of issues and people. Regardless of why you might be considering counselling, a common factor is a degree of emotional pain that's having an impact on relationships and life in general. It maybe an emotional response to situations happening in life, like a relationship breakdown or other loss, or, you’ve experienced events in the past that feel current. Perhaps you’re struggling with a problem behaviour, like alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography or sex?

We all have times in life when things can feel challenging and overwhelming, when we might feel anxious or low. This might relate to issues at work, relationships, family dynamics or ill health and bereavement. It can be helpful at times like these to take support from those we are close to, but it can also be helpful to talk to someone outside our immediate support to help us get a fresh perspective on what is going on and how we might begin to address things. This is where counselling can help.

Having undergone trauma therapy myself and experienced first-hand the immense benefits that it can bring, I decided to study to become a qualified therapist and Retreat to Advance was born. Why the name 'Retreat to Advance'? Often, we need to go back over past traumas, issues and difficulties in order then to go forward and thrive.

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.
