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 West Lake Hills 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 West Lake Hills 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 have a great deal of demands on their time. Work, family, friends, health; the list can go on and on. At times, the stress of daily life can be simply too much to handle. Work is not going well, there is fighting at home, and you seem to be just losing control of all the things you care about in life. Men are often expected to be strong and silent. While this can be helpful for resiliency, it can also create communication problems and a lack of coping skills. Whether the daily challenges of life are causing you to consider counseling, or you are dealing with a serious trauma or psychological issue, we are here to help.
