This week was international women’s day and many women up and down the country were celebrating what it is to be a women.
Whilst I embraced this myself, I couldn’t help remembering the fact that right now the majority of my clients are men. I also remembered a very sobering truth, most of them have come to me for depression.
In this society, men seem to be under increasing pressure from all angles.
Some are expressing to me that they feel a loss of identity, they don’t know who they are or what their role is in the world. They feel that their masculinity is under threat because wages are tight, they can’t earn as much. In some cases their female spouse is earning more.
And unfortunately, I am also see a lot of men who feel that they are stuck in relationships that they can’t get out of because they fear loosing their house, children and their life.
Those that do go through separation have told me that they experience a lack of support and some of the men are also finding dating incredibly hard. They feel that they have to work harder to impress a potential partner because their are so many other men on social media who might appear fitter, stronger, wealthier and a potential date has their pick.
This all seems very grim but their is hope.
The very fact that I am seeing more men in my sessions means that more men are reaching out.
More men are getting to the route cause of their issues, addressing their loss of masculinity and finding the confidence.
Hypnotherapy can help with all of these things.
If you’re feeling similar then know that these feelings and perspectives are temporary. They can be changed and you can get your sense of self back again.
