Counselling for Men in London
Research shows that men are less likely to consult with doctors and other health professionals including mental health practitioners, counsellors and psychotherapists. It is suggested that it is because men are less likely to want to talk to a stranger about their concerns, thinking that it is best to try and sort it out alone but it is also a fact that there are fewer male counsellors and psychotherapists so it can be harder to find a male practitioner.
Men and counselling
One of the common misconceptions around gender is that men need to talk more about their feelings, whilst this may often be true it over simplifies the experience of therapy for men and is often an unhelpful generalisation. Therapy is about developing a greater understanding of our concerns and looking at our thoughts, feelings and experiences is central to that. There is currently no science to prescribe the degree to which people need to focus on either their feelings, thoughts or experience so we hold the assumption that it is the individual and not their gender that guides us in therapy.
Nicholas has a practice that is equally split between male and female clients and uses a dialogic style. Nicholas has experience of men wanting to talk through issues with depression, addictions, relationships, work, suicide, confidence, bereavement, anxiety, sex and illness.
