The first step in men’s counselling is to assess the client’s needs and goals. This helps the counsellor to tailor the counselling sessions to the individual’s needs. Counselling sessions can include a range of activities, such as talking, exploring feelings and thoughts, problem-solving, goal-setting and developing coping skills. The counsellor will also help the client to identify any underlying issues or patterns of behaviour that may be contributing to the problem.
It is important to remember that men’s counselling can be a lengthy process and it is not designed to provide a quick fix. Counselling sessions can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the individual’s needs and goals. During this time, the counsellor will work with the client to develop new coping strategies, manage stress and identify any triggers that may be causing the problem.
It is important to remember that men’s counselling is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment. If you are feeling depressed, anxious or distressed it is important to seek professional help from a qualified doctor or mental health professional.
