More Men Are Coming to Therapy Now Than in Years Past
Improving Your Relationship With Your Father
My experience has been that, generally, people tend to come to therapy after a problem has been brewing for a while and their attempts to try to deal with it themselves haven't worked. This also applies to men who have problems in their relationship with their father under a variety of circumstances.
Wanting to Improve Your Relationship With Your Father, But Not Knowing How
|Wanting to Improve Your Relationship With Your Father, But Not Knowing How|
It was clear to both Joe and I that his problems with his girlfriend and the problems he had at work accepting constructive criticism were linked to his history with his father. Using a combination of clinical hypnosis and Somatic Experiencing, Joe was able to remember a time in his life when he and his father had a better relationship when Joe was about four or five.
As Joe's relationship with his father improved and he began to realize how much his father loved him, his self esteem improved. He felt less insecure in his relationships with his girlfriend and his boss. His only regret was that he wasn't able to improve his relationship with his father sooner.
If you're struggling with your relationship with your father, you could benefit from working with a licensed mental health professional who has experience working with these issues. Many people don't realize that problems they're struggling with now originate in their early relationships. Rather than continuing to struggle with these feelings, your life could be so much more fulfilling if you got help.
