Counseling for Men

at Health for Life Counseling Grand Rapids

Statistically speaking, men are less likely to seek counseling than women, but yet they face just as many issues as women. The issues of men may be somewhat different than those of women, but culturally speaking many men view expressing emotions or asking for help as “weak.” At Health for Life Counseling Grand Rapids we view Men that enter counseling as brave and strong, not only for striking out against the cultural stigma, but also because they understand that if they work on themselves they will be able to function better in all areas (including, but not limited to, their job, relationships, and just generally feeling better).

Counseling for Men

Many men who enter counseling find themselves better able to balance the responsibilities of their lives. Men may find counseling allows them to deal with the issues that appear to divide men over what is masculine behavior and what is not. Through therapy, Men can often find strength in learning how to deal with emotional expression and find ways methods to let out emotions in ways that they may not have been taught when they were growing up.

At Health for Life Counseling Grand Rapids, our counselors aim to strengthen the man you already are. Counseling guides you – it does not seek to change your personality or values. From time to time, everyone needs someone to listen to their life. Due to various factors, we don’t always have a trusted mentor or someone we can talk to about “everything.” Our counselors are here to help you with your goals and the process of moving toward them.
