Therapy for men maintains a focus on the emotional and mental impacts of being a man in society, dealing with issues like the pressures of toxic masculinity and the traditional familial roles of men, among others. Thriveworks Conway therapists who specialize in treating men work to create a safe space for them to emote and care for their mental well-being without fear of judgment.
Therapy for men has many aspects of traditional psychotherapy, but also maintains a clear person-centered and humanistic approach. Thriveworks Conway therapists will work with men to reach their therapy goals through self-reflection and introspection—uncovering specific emotional, behavioral, and mental patterns that are having a negative effect or are inhibiting personal growth and slowly working to change them over time.
Therapy for men can last for a few months or occur over the course of years, often continuing until the client feels that their goals are met and their desired growth has been achieved. However, it will likely last at least five months, as that is the average amount of time it takes for the therapeutic process to take effect and bring about lasting change.
Men and women are equal, but they are not at all the same. Both genders have unique ways of dealing with issues and communicating their thoughts and emotions. Men have a lot of demands on their time. Work, family, friends, health, hobbies; the list goes on and on. Men are taught from a young age to be strong and mostly silent about any emotional issues they may be facing. This is so common that men often do not develop their communication and coping skills. When an emotional issue arises, men may be completely unprepared to face it and move forward in a healthy manner.
