At Warm Pathways, men’s counselling is something we specialise in – two men can have a chat about some of the issues that men commonly face…
These may include feeling depressed or stuck in a low mood, struggling with anxiety, experiencing conflicts at home that seem impossible to resolve, dealing with anger management issues, feeling burnt out or frustrated at work, or struggling to balance work and home life. Additionally, some men may rely on alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, or flirting to avoid difficult emotions, and others may be dealing with difficult sexual experiences or bereavement.
“we seldom like to ask for help, and we do not like to talk about our feelings”
Men may come to counselling on their own or at the urging of a loved one, but regardless of how they arrive, they are encouraged to break their silence and seek support.
It’s likely that they won’t regret it and may even wish they had sought help sooner.

If you’re looking to save your marriage or relationship, we can help, even if your spouse is reluctant to attend counselling sessions. You can take control of your half of the relationship and learn to be more effective in your behavior and choices, which can create positive changes in your relationship. The counselors can also help you understand what your spouse or partner is saying, even if they don’t attend sessions. It’s important not to turn counselling into another power struggle with your spouse or force them to attend if they don’t want to. Instead, focus on improving yourself and your own actions to improve the relationship.
Don’t wait for your spouse to come around – seek help and start improving your relationship today.
