It is well known that us men can struggle talking about our emotions and feelings.
What is less well know is that three quarters of suicides in the UK are male suicides. This equated to 12 men that will take their own lives today, that's one every 2 hours. The same tomorrow and every day of the year.
Talking helps to defuse these suicidal feelings. Finding a safe comfortable place to talk can makes all the difference. The Shed is a safe place.
From a young age boys were told not to cry and to man up. Being told not to be such a girl was not uncommon. Hopefully today things are a little different, but this is has left many men unable, or at least struggling to verbalise their feelings. They often feel that they have to be strong and not admit that they are struggling. This can lead to emotional problems.
Few people go through life without at some point having a suicidal thought or feeling. Whilst suicidal feelings are more common than we like to admit, it doesn’t mean that it’s the answer for you. As an ACT practitioner I can guide you through learning about ACT, Acceptance Commitment Therapy. This will help you to build your confidence and build a feeling of well-being.
Finding you find your way forward is just a phone call away, but often this call can be a struggle.
Learning ACT will help you to build your confidence and a feeling of well-being.
