Research studies over the past several decades have shown that men are less likely than women to seek help for their problems–including depression, anxiety and stressful life events–even though men experience these problems just as often as women.
To benefit from counseling, a client must first admit that he needs help, then will need to trust his counselor and be willing to openly discuss and express emotion.
These requirements, often conflict with traditional ideals of what it means to be a man in today’s society.
At Wonders Counseling, we have specialized training, realizing that counseling for men often requires a different level of understanding and a different skills set than what we use with women clients. We honor the fact that it takes extra courage for a man to enter into therapy and we help men face the difficulties of life in a way that facilitates healing and balance while uncovering solutions to real-life problems.
