WHAT MEN GET OUT OF THERAPY
You get to learn BIG STUFF in therapy. You’ll learn how to express yourself clearly and directly. You figure out how to identify what you’re feeling. You’ll learn to manage your stress. You’ll learn all those emotional intelligence skills everyone keeps talking about, like empathy, emotional awareness, and self regulation. These skills come in handy with men and relationships!
You can empower yourself to have meaningful and healthy relationships with the people you care about. I’d say that’s a really good investment.
MEN AND RELATIONSHIPS
Lot’s of things get in the way of men and relationships:
- anxiety, worry and tension
- anger, impatience and irritability
- insecurity or lack of confidence
- depression, lack of motivation
- financial stress, work and career
WHAT MEN WANT IN A RELATIONSHIP
What men want in a relationship is what we all want: love, respect, acceptance, connection, security, and warmth. But it’s hard to get connection and respect when you don’t have the tools and awareness to communicate effectively.
Therapy is like a relationship 101 class tailored just for you. In the class, you’ll learn how to get better at communicating what you need, as well as accepting love and connection from the people you care about. You won’t be afraid of storms if you get better at sailing your ship. As Franklin D Roosevelt said, “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”
If I was to say what is the major emotion of American masculinity, it is anxiety. Why? Because you have to prove your masculinity all the time.”
~ Michael Kimmel
