THE GUY'S (MEN'S) GROUP

This is a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place where men of all ages can talk freely about anything that might be troubling them or annoying them or stressing them out. Anything's  up for discussion- as long as everyone's comfortable with it. It could be confidence, personal or business relationships, direction in life, social anxiety, work problems... or whatever. And you don't have to talk at all if you don't want to. Just listening to what the other guys are saying could highlight something that would help you personally.

The session was phenomenal. The moderator, Tom, went above and beyond what I'd expected from the site and the meeting. I truly appreciate the kindness and thought that went into what we spoke about. He was kind and affirming, and guided the session in a positive way.

I felt supported and heard and left the session feeling better about myself and more hopeful.... As someone who is just reaching out for help again, and was afraid to come tonight, I’m so grateful I did and I am looking forward to continuing to work with her.

That was wonderful. She's amazing and I’m so grateful I was able to speak with her tonight.
