HOW PWYCPS WORKS

They are unmatched when it comes to accessibility, affordability and creating a sense of community and knowing that you are not alone

We run over 25 different groups where others just like you are waiting for you to join them

THE GUY'S GROUP

This group is part personal development, part camaraderie. A safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where men of all ages can talk freely about anything (or everything) which is troubling them, annoying them, stressing them out …or whatever. It might be confidence, social anxiety, relationships, purpose, direction in life, work and so forth. It's all up for discussion. However, if you don’t have talk, that's fine too. You can just listen to what the other guys are saying- and perhaps learn from it too.

If you like the sound of this, join the group

What Our Clients Are Saying

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.

The moderator kept the conversation upbeat and felt like a safe place. Absolutely no judgment and questions that are hard to ask yourself. So it really made me expand my thinking.
