Men Benefit from Therapy Too!

Typically, in our society, men are expected to know all of the answers and keep their head up no matter what the situation. Talking to a female therapist who understands men and their problems can help.

Why EMDR Treatment Works and is Especially Effective for Male Clients

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a solution focused type of therapy which allows for healing to occur at a very fast rate. EMDR does not require that a client share every detail of their experience with their therapist. This therapeutic technique uses a systematic approach for working through the majority of problems clients face with a beginning and an end to each part. Clients only need to work on the specific issues they want to and it does not require homework in-between sessions. EMDR was initally thought of as a treament stategy for PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) – as it is so effective for treating severe trauma, it very may likely be able to help you.

Some benefits to EMDR work include:

  • Feel more relaxed and at peace with yourself
  • Increased confidence
  • Feel more in control of your life
  • Develop skills to resolve conflict and to communicate
    more effectively
  • Develop healthy relationships and behaviours
  • Be free of shame and guilt from not living up to
    other’s expectations
  • Feel good about your body
  • Let go of old memories that seem to haunt you
