Working with men
I am passionate about breaking the stigmas that surround men's mental health. I work inclusively with all people, not just men but I think the nature of counselling and talking about our feelings is, at times, not seen as a very masculine pursuit. Because of these narratives, men tend to bottle things up and don't always know which emotions to be feeling and when they are supposed to be feeling them. It can become a confusing game and difficult to untangle the many 'shoulds'.
I work with men to help navigate this somewhat uncharted territory. To explore the unsaid and what has been held for too long. Through the work, we may discover some unknown depths of emotional strength. More than ever, I think therapy is an essential resource and important tool, for men, in the world we live in today.
