Starting Therapy for men

What is Therapy for men?

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 Mt Pleasant 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.

How does Therapy for men work?

Therapy for men has many aspects of traditional psychotherapy, but also maintains a clear person-centered and humanistic approach. Thriveworks Mt Pleasant 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.

Is Therapy for men conducted in person or online?

Therapy for men at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Therapy for men last?

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.

Need more help deciding?

Do you feel alone, sad, frustrated or angry often, but prefer not to acknowledge it or talk about it? Do you try to overcome your feelings by ignoring them? Is it becoming harder to manage? You are not alone. Significantly fewer men seek therapy compared to women, despite the rate of mental health disorders being only slightly higher in women.

Why is this? Cultural norms, stigma, or rigid beliefs may prevent men from processing emotions and without the proper support, this may cause increased stress and physical symptoms that can lead to a crisis response. Thriveworks Mount Pleasant Counseling wants to help you navigate these feelings before a crisis occurs. Please call us at 843-606-6223 to set up an appointment today.

What are some of the reasons men seek therapy?

The feeling that you need to do it all is real for a lot of men – working for promotions, being the best dad, staying fit and active, excelling at hobbies, maintaining a romantic and intimate relationship, and supporting meaningful friendships. Balancing it all can become unmanageable. Once overwhelmed, some men seek therapy for the following reasons:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger management
  • Substance abuse
  • Relationship issues
  • Financial concerns
  • Low self esteem
  • PTSD

Symptoms associated with the above diagnoses can appear differently in men compared to women. Anger, substance abuse, and sleeping difficulties could be symptoms of depression –  not mere sadness or loneliness. This can be confusing and upsetting to manage alone. The therapists at Thriveworks Mount Pleasant are experts in counseling you through these issues as you work towards a better you!

What could therapy at Thriveworks look like?

We understand that it can be hard to reach out, but please call us at 843-606-6223, as we’re here to help! We are conveniently located adjacent to the Queensborough Shopping Center at 1131 Queensborough Blvd., #100 just across the bridge from Charleston in Mt. Pleasant.

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.
