What are issues particularly facing men?
Being a man, you will have different issues to deal with in comparison to the type of issues women have. In part, this is because society as selected certain routes deemed acceptable and necessary when you are a man, which you must take on. As a man, society expects you to be strong enough to not make excuses of results that fall short of expectation. This will cause men to feel they must take on the world without asking for help and that they should not feel vulnerable or oppressed in any way. Men will often suffer from isolation and being lonely because of failure to recognize or regard their own feelings.
How Can Psychotherapy Help?
