Men

Men may experience symptoms of mental health challenges differently from women.  For instance, men experiencing depression may exhibit signs of irritability or anger, instead of crying or appearing “sad”. Using alcohol, drugs or unhealthy relationships to cope with symptoms of emotional distress can be common for men. Aspire Counselling is a non-judgemental, safe environment for men to explore solutions and learn how to make effective positive behaviour change to achieve positive outcomes. Other areas of therapy for men include:

  • Substance dependency or addiction
  • Other dependency or addiction—Internet, gaming, gambling, sex
  • Bipolar
  • Depression, which might be experienced as boredom, lack of motivation, or feeling that one is blank or “stuck”

  • Grief
  • Anxiety and Panic Disorders

Communication is an integral part of romantic relationships. Whether you are dating, living together, or married; communication is at the core of any relationship. Couples counseling can help find effective ways to communicate openly, build/re-build trust, deepen loving connections and establish positive boundaries in a safe, supportive non-judgemental environment.
