Why Men Need Therapy

I run men’s Intensive therapy weekends because I have met far too many men at my Couples Retreats who are brilliant but who just don’t have the necessary emotional intelligence to succeed at relationships.  Men’s brains are hard wired for action, not emotion.  Add to this the stigma of male vulnerability, and you have a lot of  men repressing their feelings, or worse, medicating themselves for depression or anxiety.  In order to cope with stress and with life’s messy problems, (aka “marriage”), men need to become more aware of their emotions and communicate them to their partners.  If you or a man you love answers “yes” to 3 or more of these questions, you/he would benefit greatly from my Wise Warrior Weekend.

  • Are you emotionally blocked making it difficult to have rewarding relationships?
  • Do you have difficulty sharing your feelings even with your spouse?
  • Are you quick to anger and frustration?
  • Have you suffered stress or burn-out in the past two years?
  • Do you suffer from depression, anxiety or mood disorders?
  • Are you suffering from a bad divorce or marriage break-down?
  • Have you been betrayed or cheated on?
  • Are you grieving a death or loss?
  • Do you have trouble sleeping?
  • Do you have a negative relationship with your parents and/or siblings?
  • Do you feel isolated, alone and disconnected from people?
  • Are you unhappy about your work and feel you need a career change?
  • Did you suffer abandonment as a child?
  • Were you raised by alcoholics or parents with other addictions?
  • Are you suffering with shame or guilt?
