Vancouver, BC – Living a purposeful life based on needs and beliefs allows people to feel authentic compassion for themselves and others. They don’t need to be martyrs, misunderstood, alone, or sheltered into a better life. While many people may have negative past experiences, many men don’t reach out for help because the concept may feel incomprehensible, they don’t feel comfortable with female counsellors, or the idea of going through counselling is unappealing. What many clients have found helpful at Wellspring Counselling Inc. is its custom approaches, empowering them to connect or repair common human emotions/tendencies that keep them in a rut.
From his experience, Alistair Gordon, MA, RCC, CCC, the director, noticed that men were more comfortable speaking to male counsellors. For this reason, he and a team of registered male counsellors in BC encourage men to talk about their issues, address trauma, and learn healthy coping mechanisms.
“I see the unique needs and strengths of the fellow men I help. A future focus can help give direction to what you want instead of only fixing ‘old’ problems.” – Alistair Gordon, Registered Clinical Counsellor.
Wellspring Counselling Inc. helps clients actualize their potential, so they can be more confident, experience healthy relationships, and avoid passing issues to the next generation. The male counsellors address anger, anxiety, grief/loss, depression, guilt, shame, self-esteem, and stress. Men struggling with being new parents, handling misbehaviour from their kids, struggling to connect with a child, or understanding their children’s point of view can improve their awareness, empathy, listening skills, and patience with online counselling.
Besides emotional baggage from the past and its current effects, male counsellors focus on career prospects. They help clients navigate unemployment, professional burnout, workplace decision-making, conflict resolution with co-workers, and new career opportunities. Career counselling empowers clients to resume clarifying their goals, values, visions, long-term objectives, and game plans. Wellspring Counselling Inc. uses the world-renowned Active Engagement method, which addresses career exploration. It also emphasises hope, imagination, creativity, positive affirmation, action, and cultural awareness as career development strategies.
Through online counselling in British Columbia, clients receive one-one attention, new perspectives, and insight in the comfort of their homes/offices. Many studies suggest that online counselling offers the same value as in-person sessions without the inconvenience of driving or parking lots. The male counsellors leverage secure video platforms and software most clinics use to protect client privacy. Additionally, clients can access well-written articles on managing anger, psychotherapy approaches, communication skills, breathing exercises for anxiety, and many more.
