Whatever our gender identity, we often seek rich, fulfilling relationships, purposeful work or a meaningful life.
Sometimes, as men, we have personal and cultural reasons for avoiding or approaching therapy. As men we can be influenced by some views of masculinity that can conflict with our physical, emotional, relational or psychological well-being. Nevertheless, in spite of the hold that personal and cultural opinions about what it means “to be a man” may have on us, we have desires to:
- Express our emotions or acknowledge our distress
- Find ways to approach our work or “provider” roles without over identifying with what we accomplish
- Take care of our own health or stresses
- Refuse to suffer quietly with depression or anxiety
- Acknowledge our spirituality and our search for meaning
- Relinquish some patterns that sabotage our personal or relational well-being
- Attune to the wisdom of our heart and cultivate mindful self-compassion and compassion for others
- Approach career or life-transitions whole-heartedly and skillfully
- Resolve father-son issues and/or parenting concerns
- Improve our intimate relationships
