Many men deal with work stress, relationship issues, workplace issues, and anxiety, but don’t know how to talk about it. A male therapist, and therapy attuned to the internal world of men, can help you deal with these issues in an effective way!
From relationships that aren’t working out to stressful jobs that are overwhelming, therapy can help you figure out how to deal with your challenges. Therapy with men differs from therapy for women in one main area: men tend to be more solution focused – let’s fix the issue at hand – and less getting in touch with, and venting the feelings they are feeling around the issue. If you think that therapy is only for women, then your definition of manning up is sorely lacking.
The stigma that therapy is for women couldn’t be further from the truth. Men are more likely to experience mental health challenges than women and are less likely to get treatment. Reluctance to get support can be damaging to your health, your career, your family, and to the lives of the people in your family.
Manning up means looking beyond stigmas and preconceptions to understand your very real needs and access effective support. If you are considering psychological support — I know what it’s like, I’ve lived the rough and tumble of the workplace, relationships, and other stressors.
A recent article in The New York Times, “How to Get More Men to Try Therapy” explains:
Mental health experts say that many American men are in crisis. One solution is to convince them that asking for help is a strength, not a weakness.

The vast majority of guys who undergo counseling report feeling empowered and more capable afterward. Men who get past the stigma and get effective therapy tend to experience more professional success, more resilience to setbacks, better romantic relationships, healthier family connections, less anxiety, and more energy.
Your mental well-being is just as crucial as your physical fitness. Take the steps that you need to protect your emotional health and perform at your peak.
The stigma around men’s mental health affects the men who need it most, but it can also affect how the therapist understands you. A male therapist, or a therapist trained to better understand the internal world of male clients, can get past stereotypes of masculinity to best support your growth.
