Our People - P
I would describe myself a fairly typical kiwi guy; have always been into sports, music, outdoor stuff, and 'toys'. I am a father, a son, a brother, and a mate, who recognises that sometimes we just need to acknowledge some of the crap that we go through.
Through my own life experiences, and since beginning my counselling training in the mid '90s, I have recognised the distinct lack of professional help tailored specifically for men. Added to that was the challenge for guys to open up and talk about stuff, which just wasn't considered cool.
We see time and again the results of ‘real men’ who bottle stuff up until it explodes – or implodes. Violence, depression, drugs, and stress; it's not easy keeping some of this stuff hidden away.
Seeking professional help is not an easy thing to do either when you're a bloke but getting through those dark times is something made so much easier with the help of a therapist. And where does a bloke find such a service For more info refer to my site www.menswork.co.nz
