"It's good to know I am not alone."
Men were never meant to face the challenges of our lives as “lone wolves.” Historically, men would often band together to support each other, to back each other up, to teach and encourage each other to be the men that the community needed them to be. Sadly, our cultures have lost much of that. Northern Illinois Men’s Counseling offers men a chance to return to the wisdom of the past which proved that when men connect and honestly support each other they do far better.
In a group men may work with concerns like:
Fatherhood and step-fathering
Anger and Frustration
A men’s group is about defining yourself as the man you want to be, and learning to be authentically yourself in relationships, work and the world.
What to Expect
In groups, men from widely different backgrounds and situations can find understanding, support, and wisdom from other men that would be impossible in individual therapy.
Our 10-week, Men and Relationships group is designed for men who struggle because they:
Avoid conflict, go silent or withdraw; or
Push others away with irritability, or aggressive, antagonistic or abusive behaviors; or
Internalize hard feelings, leading to resentment, emotional disconnection, dissatisfaction, depression, or anxiety
PLEASE NOTE: These groups are not intended for court-mandated anger management. Participants in our groups attend voluntarily out of a strong personal desire to change.
Men in the group are deeply heard and offered feedback to guide and challenge them to be in integrity with their feelings, thoughts, and actions. Men have an opportunity to work their individual concerns as well as participate in the work of other men. Groups typically meet once a week for 10 weeks and are limited to no more than 5 participants.
All men in the group are asked to commit to the confidentiality of the group and the stories, work, and identities of all men in the group. This commitment is permanent – it never expires.
