Persistent anxiety can impair your ability to live the life you really want.
Anxiety is one of the most universal experiences of our modern world, and is quite common when interviewing for a job, giving a presentation, making an important decision, or having a sensitive conversation.
For some, anxiety can become a dominant and even debilitating part of life that may be experienced as generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and intrusive worry.
Anxiety and Men
While anxiety impacts everyone, men are less likely to seek professional help.
In men, anxiety may express itself in emotional or physical forms such as:
- Irritability or “being on edge”
- Depressed mood
- Fatigue and/or burnout
- Difficulty concentrating or being present
- Sexual health issues (such as erectile dysfunction)
Men are also more inclined to adopt compensatory behaviors that serve as coping strategies for their anxiety, such as:
- Antisocial behavior or withdrawing
- Risky behaviors or activities
- Addictive behaviors (such as pornography or gaming)
- Substance abuse
The longer you suffer in silence, the more time your anxiety has to deteriorate your closest and most important relationships.
Fortunately, there is a range of evidence-based clinical practices to help overcome this debilitating experience.
One of the most effective, evidenced-based clinical methods used to address anxiety is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented form of psychotherapy that involves a practical approach to problem-solving.
Other evidenced-based methods such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure Therapy, and Mindfulness and Meditation are highly effective in the treatment of anxiety.

Asking for help is not a weakness; conversely, it’s a sign of strength and courage. I sat on my hands for years but finally picked up the phone for help. I’ve found real peace and calm in my life. Fear and anxiety no longer dictate my world. B.P.
What a mind shift! I no longer worry excessively or place such enormous pressure on myself to ‘be the man’. This is the most real I’ve ever been. Don’t wait to get this shit sorted out. Life is too short! L.E.
I thought I was alone in the way that I viewed the world and how I reacted to it. Simon offered a judgement free zone, that allowed me to actually figure out what triggered my anxiety and how to dial it back. I no longer get in my own way of living life. G.H
