iMentalhealth Counselling Services offers men’s counselling in the City of Saint Albert, Alberta and the Edmonton area, with Registered Provisional Psychologist Geordy Murphy.
We help men with a variety of issues not limited to anger, communication and relationships.
From my experience, some men are hesitant to seek out counselling support because our culture has influenced men to handle things on their own and to not share their feelings. Many of us men were raised with phrases like “suck it up, don’t be a pussy, and don’t cry.”
Unfortunately what happens though, is that many of us guys have been given the adequate tools to deal with emotions when they come. Basically, if we suck it up all the time, the emotions will eventually come out in ways like anger outbursts, addiction, abuse, agitation, depression, rage, and being a workaholic.
Interestingly, if we do not learn to tools to effectively deal with our emotions as men, it could also impact our physical health as well.
The other thought I have in men’s counselling, is what is our identity as men in this day and age. If it is not being tough guys who like trucks and don’t cry, what does it actually mean to be a man?
These are all important questions to grasp and being two fellow men, it gives us that personal experience with the pros and cons of being a man in our culture.
