A generation of men well-balanced in body, mind and soul, healed from their wounds, living their lives with integrity and resiliency, and who maintain healthy, meaningful relationships with family, friends and community.
To this end, we stand on three pillars of service:
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
You may wonder what male-centred therapy is. In therapy language, we define it as the approach of human service delivery that employs the subjective experience of men as a primary means of understanding and facilitating therapeutic change. What this means is we understand and our guided by what our clients want to work on. It’s that simple.
Expertise in Trauma:
“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.”
We know that many men carry wounds around from the past. Sexual abuse, physical abuse, family violence, growing up with troubled families. Despite best efforts to keep these wounds hidden, they invariably accompany us in our adult lives. Polarized thinking. Emotional distance. Issues of anger and rage. Inconsistency in relationships.
These memories don’t fade with time, but therapy can make the pain diminish. To this end, we have two evidence-based studies that support the success of our treatment model. This expertise is embedded in all our programs — individual therapy and our group services.
“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”
Emotional integrity is more than a notion. Integrity requires our thoughts, feelings and behaviour to be in proper alignment. Here is another way of looking at it: living one’s life and conducting oneself in your personal relationships based on the following three premises:
- Being profoundly honest with oneself.
- Owning your own feelings and behaviour (taking responsibility).
- Closing the emotional space you hold with others.
If you are drawn to these qualities in your quest for personal change, then we want to hear from you!
