Why Katy Counseling for Men?

 

Men, can you relate with any of the following:

  • The mounting stress and pressures in life are almost too much to bear.

  • You're going through a separation or divorce and the weight and pressure is almost overwhelming.

  • Feelings of depression continue to bear down on you.

  • You feel stuck and it's limiting you personally, relationally, and professionally.

  • Anxiety is preventing you from excelling in your career due to the constant worry, fear, and concern. 

  • Anxiety is also keeping you up at night as you can't stop your mind from spinning and overthinking.

  • Your marriage is struggling, you want it to improve but feel stuck in the same cycle.

  • You don't know why you get so angry. Certain things push your buttons, and you don't know why you react the way you do, but you do.

Men, emotional challenges act as barriers limiting our ability to access our inner strengths, talents, and abilities. Living life with emotional challenges will always limit our life fulfillment and our ability to compete, create, and provide. 

Once those barriers are removed, life becomes much different. Our relationships, our career, and life happiness can be taken to a higher level, a level we have been striving for all this time.

Katy Counseling for Men is different than other counseling practices. We hire those therapists who specialize in men's counseling.

Other practices may be more generalist in nature. Kind of like going to a family doctor for heart problems. Katy Counseling for Men is a specialist practice. Kind of like seeing a cardiologist, someone who specializes in all things heart. 

When you go to a family doctor for a heart problem, they can help. But when you go to a cardiologist who specializes in all things about the heart, you get a different level of care, help, and support. 

Through our counselor's education, experience, and training, our men's counselors main focus and priority is helping men. We help men to build stronger futures by removing the obstacles and barriers that stand in their way of competing, creating, and providing at their optimal level.

The Strengths of a Man 

 

Men come by way of specific drives that are genetically encoded in our DNA. These drives were handed down from our hunter/gather ancestors where the strong survived.

 

We have evolved to have 20 times the testosterone than women do. This means our muscles develop stronger, our bones denser, & we carry more red blood cells. We are designed to compete. And with this increase in testosterone, we tend to have more aggressive drives that when channeled appropriately, isn't a weakness but a strength in helping us to overcome.

 

Men are wired to be competitive and to compete against one another. Our ancestors competed against scarce resources for their tribe. The men who did not compete, did not survive.

 

We are wired to problem solve, build, create, and provide. Our ancestors had to have strong problem-solving skills in order to provide for their tribe. They had to create and build to protect them from the climate and weather.

We are at our best when we feel confident in our ability to compete, protect, and provide for ourselves and those we love.

We have innate strengths that are not better than, simply different, than women's strengths. And this is important to understand as a counselor for men as we can help build on these strengths throughout counseling.

“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding.”  

― S.L. Alder

And One Tiny Weakness

 

In addition to these genetically derived strengths, we also have another trait that was handed down through our ancestorial line -- to not show weakness! Weakness or showing weakness in our early human development was often a threat to our and our tribe's survival.

 

While today's man largely does not have to worry about life and death decisions, we still have retained these strengths to defend against life's threats. And we have also retained the trait to not show weakness.

Men are half as likely to see a doctor according to the Center for Disease Control. And out of the top 10 causes of death, men are likely to die from 8 of them according to the National Vital Statistics Report.  According to the Mental Health Foundation, roughly 16% of men will experience an emotional struggle. But out of that 16%, only 36% will see a counselor. The Center for Disease Control show that while men make up 48% of the population, they account for 80% of suicides.

At Katy Counseling for Men, we believe that this genetically handed down strength of not showing weakness, in our modern world, has turned into a health risk for many men. And the numbers would support that.

We have been endowed with strengths largely centered around the primary, instinctual drive to provide, protect, and create for our tribe. In our modern world we don't have to compete with or protect ourselves or our tribe from external, life-threatening dangers (in general).

The danger has shifted in today's modern world. It is no longer external threats to our or our tribe's safety, it's a new danger that many men fear the most.  More than the saber-toothed tiger of our ancestors. More than the warring tribe trying to take our life and property of those who came before us.

 

What men fear most is the inner world of thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Acknowledging this may feel like a weakness. But to ignore it has a direct impact on our ability today to protect, provide, and create for ourselves and our tribe. To acknowledge our inner world and seek help for the benefit of ourselves and our modern-day tribe takes strength.

It's time to gear up, man up, and do what's necessary for your good and the good of those who rely on you. How can you compete, protect, and provide for you and your loved ones when depression, anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, performance anxiety, ADHD/ADD, trauma, PTSD, anger, etc. are attacking you at every front and you don't have the weapons to fight back?

“Anyone can hide. Facing up to things, working through them, that’s what makes you strong.” – S. Dessen

We Can Help

At Katy Counseling for Men, we have seen the need to hire counselors not only to work with men, but who specialize in working with men.  We hire those therapists who through education, experience, and or training, know men. 

 

We are not a generalist practice. We are a specialty practice. Men have unique strengths that we should value and build upon to help men succeed. Men also face unique challenges that often arise when the strengths of men are in conflict with a life situation.

Men need a men's counselor who gets and understands men. And a counselor for men who understand that there a wide variety of types of men as well.

Whether this is your first time to counseling or you've been before, we believe you will find it a comfortable and refreshing experience to meet with someone who gets and understands you as a man.

 

Some of the challenges we have helped men overcome include:

What is the Obstacle in Your Way?

Is self-improvement something that you strive for in all areas of your life? 

Do you find that emotional challenges are acting as barriers to your personal, relationship, or career goals?

Do you feel stuck wanting to rid your life of the emotional barriers, yet you find it difficult to acknowledge them to others?

And when you do, seeing a therapist creates a feeling of vulnerability that feels threatening in some way?

Men, therapy can help you overcome the anxiety, depression, or other challenges that prevent you from being the best and happiest you.

 

Our goal is to not make lifelong clients. Our goal is to help you get what you need, in the shortest amount of time possible, and have you go on to live a better, happier, and more fulfilled life -- in ALL aspects of your life.

As men, we have many reasons why we can't or won't go see a therapist:

  • I don't have time, 

  • It's too expensive,

  • It won't work for me,

  • I don't need it, etc.

This is what we may tell ourselves and others. In reality, many men have deeper concerns:

  • What will others think if I'm seeing a therapist?

  • What will that say about me as a man?

  • I don't know if I can be vulnerable to a stranger.

  • It just feels too much right now. With all the stress in my life, this will just add to it.

  • What if it doesn't help? Then what?

As a man, a man who is also a therapist, and a man who is a therapist who has been in therapy, I can relate. I delayed seeing a therapist for the first reason, "I don't have time." 

 

When in reality, I had time, I just didn't want to take the time to do the work that I knew would involve me feeling a bit vulnerable. I had a ton of stress in my life at that time and didn't want to add one more thing.

Because I pushed through my "reasons", I took a chance in trusting a therapist who specialized in men's counseling, my life became immeasurably better.  We have seen other's lives become immeasurably better and yours can too!

 

Katy Counseling for Men is designed to be a comfortable, confidential, and specialized practice just for men. When you meet with our counselors, it feels very much like sitting down and talking with a friend. This friend just happens to be able to provide seasoned, experienced, and specialized coaching for overcoming the obstacles in your life.

You may have a financial advisor who you enjoy meeting with. You may have a personal trainer who you look forward to meeting with. You may have an executive coach who you've come to develop a good relationship with.

 

Therapy for men is simply having a life coach and works much in the same way.
