Every person that comes to counseling is unique and has individualized needs. People of different ages present differently in counseling. Similarly, men and women have unique and specialized needs for counseling. Although men and women may need counseling in the same area, such as for depression or anxiety, the way that they present this issue, and also the way that they recover and process it, is distinct. At Thriveworks Knoxville, we understand the unique needs of men in counseling. We understand that the same qualities that may help you at work may hinder you in your emotional health. Being strong and silent may be prized among men in society, but it often can also lead to the stifling of emotions and avoiding true feelings.
You may fear that coming to therapy means that you will end up crying on a couch. While this is perfectly acceptable, it is not an inevitable or required part of the process. There are many different areas in which men seek counseling. Some of these may include:
- Life coaching
- Career counseling
- Substance abuse
- Sexual issues
- Divorce recovery
- Marriage or couples counseling
- Family counseling
This is by no means an exhaustive list. We will work with you to determine your needs for counseling, create a plan for measuring progress, and then walk with you along the way. At Thriveworks Knoxville, we never operate with a waiting list. We understand that it can be difficult to make that first call for help. The last thing you want to hear when you call is that the first available appointment is in a few weeks. We have appointments available for new clients within 24 hours. We are ready when you need us.
Call Thriveworks Knoxville today. It would be our honor to walk with you on this journey of growth and healing.
