Counseling for Men in Pooler, GA—Counselors and Therapists
It’s an unfortunate fact that gender stereotypes are still rampant in today’s society. Although not all of them are negative, many are. And many contribute negatively to mental health. As a man, society demands you to be strong and unyielding, ambitious and always objective. It can feel like you have to suffer in silence, or that you shouldn’t even be suffering at all.
Those are lies society likes to put on people. They aren’t true! Men can feel both distressing and pleasant emotions, and their mental health can also suffer from negative gender stereotyping.
It doesn’t make you weak. It doesn’t make you broken. It makes you human. And Thriveworks Pooler wants you to know you don’t have to go through it alone. There are many positives to having a counselor who understands you. Counseling for Men provides a way for us to understand a little deeper what might be going on, and how best to attack it to get your life back to a healthy, happy, fulfilling one.
What Is Counseling for Men?
Many of the issues men face, women will too. But some issues are specific to men or have a slightly different form than when they appear in women. Thriveworks Pooler is here no matter what you bring into the counseling office. You deserve the best life, and sometimes that means working through emotions, thoughts, or behaviors that you don’t want to have. You deserve to be free of those, whatever they are!
The two things every counseling session with Thriveworks Pooler will offer is to client-focused and judgment-free care. Client-focused means we always keep the discussion around you- your situation, your thoughts, your dreams, your personality. Everyone is unique, even if the problem you are dealing with is widespread. The best care considers our individual differences and uses them to get you to a place you’re happy with. Judgement-free is vital because of all the expectations the outside world can throw at us. We all need a place we can go to simply be, no matter what that looks like. Thriveworks Pooler strives to create that space so we can heal from the past and practice techniques to carry us into the future.
What Does Counseling for Men Look Like?
Again, many of the techniques we use in Counseling for Men will be widespread. It’s how we apply them that’s different. When society has told you to push away emotions and think practically, it can take a while to grow accustomed to thinking critically about them and accepting them for what they are. This can definitely be an important step in Counseling for Men. There are also different social roles men are expected to fill, and whether or not you are actively trying to fill it, the expectations can weigh heavily.
Thriveworks Pooler has years of experience and training that can help us lift the heavy expectations and standards and allow you to walk freely again.
