If you are a guy who has experienced stress, depression or a difficult past, you might have noticed that the code of ‘self-sufficient, strong masculinity’ gets in the way of seeking help. What? Me, see a therapist?
You may have bottled everything up and distracted yourself with fun things like alcohol, drugs, gambling or porn.
You might struggle with anger or communication difficulties in your relationship. Men frequently overestimate their ability to sacrifice themselves for their partner.
Anxiety can cause men to experience sexual challenges and performance-related fears. This can feel extremely embarrassing and difficult to tackle.
So let’s leave that stiff upper lip thing in the past. If any of the above resonates with you, a practical and goal-orientated approach to therapy might be just what you need.
