Men’s Mental Health and How Hypnotherapy Can Empower You!
Mental health is a critical issue that affects people of all genders, races, and ages. Unfortunately, despite this reality, many men still suffer in silence when it comes to their mental health. For some men, mental health issues can manifest themselves in the form of anxiety, depression, or even addiction.
Whether men being silent is due to cultural stigmas or the fact they feel they don’t have the tools to accurately describe, express or solve their problems. This fear of failing to convey their thoughts and emotions causes them to avoid the subject completely. Society’s expectations and traditional gender roles play a role in why men are less likely to seek help for their mental health problems.
Did you know that only 36% or referrals to NHS talking therapies are for men? In addition men are also more likely to go missing or sleep on the streets.
Thankfully, there are several treatment options available to men who are struggling with these issues, talking therapies such as counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mental heal help as well as medications. One such treatment that is gaining in popularity is hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy can help.
Hypnotherapy, also known as hypnosis, is a technique that is used to induce a trance-like state in a person. When a person is in this state, they are more open to suggestion, and their subconscious mind is more accessible. With the use of hypnosis, trained professionals can help a person reprogram their mind and change their patterns of thinking and behavior.
When it comes to mental health, hypnotherapy has been shown to be an effective treatment option for men. For example, many men who struggle with anxiety or depression have deep-seated issues or thought patterns that are contributing to their mental health issues. These issues can be difficult to confront, and traditional talk therapy may not be effective in addressing them.
However, hypnotherapy can help men access these issues while they are in a relaxed and open state, making it easier for them to process and find resolution.
Hypnotherapy can also be useful in helping men overcome addiction. Addiction is often rooted in deep-seated emotional and psychological issues, and hypnosis can help address these issues in a way that traditional therapies may not. It is more common for men to turn to alcohol or drugs for comfort than seek professional help.
Another benefit of hypnotherapy is that it can help men manage their stress and anxiety. Many men today face high levels of stress in their personal and professional lives, which can lead to overwhelming anxious feelings. Hypnotherapy can help men access their inner resources and improve their coping mechanism, leading to greater emotional resilience.

As a therapist I find that for every 15 – 20 women that I work with, I may work with 1 man – which I find quite sad.I find that men quite often respond to therapy faster than women do and are more likely to do any assignments that are set for them. It may be a time thing, I’m not sure.
I offer a free confidential telephone consultation to anyone wanting help or to know more about the work that I do and how it could help you. This gives you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have, and I can offer advice accordingly.
