Men’s Health Counselling – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Men’s Health Counselling: Men suffer from all the emotional issues females suffer from, but males are programmed to behave differently to those emotions, to hold them in. It is important that men are allowed to express their emotions in a constructive and safe way. Men also suffer from illnesses such as prostate cancer that need care and assistance the same as any other illness as they travel through that scary world.

Counselling Approach: I believe that the major need for men in counselling is to be heard and understood. Talking about and/or learning to talk about issues is an essential part of any therapy with men. Also, allowing men to express their feelings in their own way indicates that their feelings are genuine and cared about. I believe a good session is just that: talking and caring.
