Christian Counseling For Men’s Issues

We live in a society filled with conflicting gender identity messages, devaluation of masculinity, and attacks on manhood in general. In such a climate, where is a man to turn to find role models, instruction on proper behavior for men, how to be a gentleman, or what it even means to be a man in today’s world?

Perhaps you really want to step up the plate and be a man, but you don’t know how or where to start. Whatever your situation, Newport Beach Christian Counseling is here to help guide and equip you to be the man God wants you to be.

What types of topics or problems do you address with in counseling for men?

There are a number of areas related to manhood that we are equipped to address at Newport Beach Christian Counseling.

Here are some of the more common issues:

Depression

Along with anxiety, depression in men typically goes undiagnosed. If you think that you are suffering from depression, please don’t wait to get help. Call a Christian counselor at Newport Beach Christian Counseling to set up an initial risk-free session.

Relationship advice

Though not a mental health issue, men often find themselves in need of relationship advice. Maybe you are thinking of getting engaged, are already engaged, or are struggling in your marriage. Perhaps you are still looking for the right woman. Whatever your situation, we can help. We offer relationship advice for men at any stage of life.

Anger issues

For many people – particularly men – anger is their default emotional response when something doesn’t go right. When faced with disappointment, hopelessness, frustration, or failure, anger is often the path of least resistance. Anger that is uncontrolled can wreak havoc in a person’s life, however, and end up alienating loved ones and even getting one in trouble with the law.

Let Newport Beach Christian Counseling help. We can provide you with a wide range of anger management tools that will equip you to take back your life. Don’t be a slave to anger problems any longer! Get help today.

Career counseling 

Do you feel as if your career has stalled? Maybe you want to take your job skills to the next level or improve your interpersonal communication skills. Or perhaps you want to change careers altogether.

Whatever your situation, Newport Beach Christian Counseling offers a full range of career counseling opportunities to help you succeed in your chosen occupation. We offer personality and skills tests, along with interest surveys to find out what career might be best for you.

I’ve been experiencing symptoms of anxiety. Can Christian counseling help me?

If you suffer from constant worries or fears that prevent you from doing certain things or going certain places, then you may be suffering from anxiety. Anxiety is one of the most frequently undiagnosed mental health conditions among men and can be a real hindrance to living life to the fullest. The counselors at Newport Beach Christian Counseling can help you overcome your anxiety so you can regain control over your life.

How are anxiety symptoms in men different from anxiety symptoms in women?

While both men and women may suffer from anxiety disorders, the symptoms can vary. Women are twice as likely to suffer from anxiety as men and anxiety disorders typically occur earlier in women than in men.

While many of the actual symptoms are similar, men are more likely to hide the fact that they are suffering from anxiety than are women. Women are also more likely to have accompanying mental health conditions than are men.

What are the most common causes of depression in men?

Depression is a debilitating condition that even men can suffer from. Here are a number of symptoms:

  • Withdrawal and isolation
  • Craving alcohol or drugs
  • Engaging in high-risk activities
  • Sexual performance and desire issues
  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Overeating or lack of appetite
  • Fatigue, inability to sleep, or oversleeping
  • Suicidal tendencies or suicide attempts
  • Physical pains, cramps, headaches, or digestive issues
  • Inability to concentrate or remember details
  • Loss of interest in work, family, or activities previously found pleasurable
  • Inability to meet work and family commitments
  • Anxiety or restlessness
  • Irritability or anger

If you find yourself suffering from any of the symptoms above, call Newport Beach Christian Counseling at (949) 386-7178 to set up an initial risk-free consultation.

What do you recommend for treating symptoms of depression in men?

Typically, some form of “talk therapy” is recommended for treating depression in men. This kind of treatment helps to instill new attitudes, ways of thinking, and behavior and can be effective apart from medication.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and types of problem-solving therapy are just a few of the varieties of talk therapy available. Should therapy alone prove ineffective, then medication may be prescribed.

I think my wife and I are to the point where we need marriage counseling. What is the first step?

If you find yourself in a position where you need marriage counseling, the first step is to agree together to actually get counseling. Without mutual agreement, any counseling would be pointless and unlikely to do any lasting good.

Once you both agree on the need for counseling, it is time to seek a counselor. If you are looking for a Christian counselor in Newport Beach for marriage counseling, call us at(949) 386-7178 or contact us online to set up a risk-free initial appointment.

I’ve been fighting a pornography addiction for years. I’ve tried to stop but it never lasts. What should I do?

Many have tried and failed to escape the grip of pornography. Pornography addiction is a sort of enslavement that is very difficult (and sometimes impossible) to break free from by yourself.

If you find yourself in this situation, you need help. The counselors at Newport Beach Christian Counseling will partner with you to provide guidance, compassion, and accountability when you need it most. They will help you to build new, healthy habits to replace the addiction so that you can live a life that honors God.
