Men’s Counselling Melbourne
If you’re looking for Men’s counselling in Melbourne, or a male counsellor, I’d love to work with you.
Everybody has gone through issues similar to these at one point in their lifetimes. Everybody has hit a slump in their lives that they just could not get themselves over alone. Many people can benefit from counselling, and yes, that does include men, despite what societal norms have conditioned us to think.
What the Statistics Say
Statistically, men tend to seek therapy less often than women. However, this does not mean that men do not suffer from mental health issues that counselling would be able to help with. Men’s suicide rates are up to four times higher than women’s suicide rates, despite research finding diagnosed depression rates being lower in men than in women. About 1 in 5 men develop alcohol dependency in their lifetime. Over six million men suffer from depression, despite it often being undiagnosed.
Despite these statistics proving that men suffer from mental illness just like women, men are less likely to seek help through therapy for their mental health issues. This is often due to the pressures that are placed on men in society. Oftentimes, men are raised to be tough and keep to themselves about anything they may be suffering with. There is a stigma that has been placed, by society, on men’s mental health. The stigma around men’s mental, however, is slowly dissipating. As people begin talking more about the benefits of therapy, men’s mental health is becoming less and less stigmatised in our societies.
How Men’s Counselling in Melbourne Can Benefit You

As society evolves, though, men are finding the courage to seek help for issues that are effecting the quality of their life.
