I’ve been an angry person for years. Simon has given me hope that I can engage in life without this weight hanging over my shoulders. I’ve moved passed the anger. I’ve repaired the relationship with my wife, my kids, and my family. I’ve found real, lasting direction in my life. Any man out there who’s hesitating seeking help – all I can say is, this therapy stuff actually works.
I found my voice and saved my relationship. For years, my partner and I rebounded from one argument to the next. I just couldn't find the words to tell her what was happening to me and I would clam up and withdraw. I thought therapy was a cop-out, but now I feel understood, without worrying that I'm losing a part of myself. It's been a meaningful experience.
We sought help when we [our family] had a melt-down. We struggled to cope with the crisis that landed on our doorstep. We felt hopeless. We were referred to Simon, and what a blessing it’s been. Without his help, we’re sure that we would have been in real trouble. He’s patient and respectful. He gave all of us a voice.
What an amazing experience it's been just knowing that each week, I can meet with a group of men who simply understand and respect the shit that I’ve gone through. I can’t recall the last time that I had an actual conversation with, well, anyone. It’s great to know that I’m not alone with my experiences.
I was definitely one of those guys who didn’t think that I needed to talk to anyone. I thought I could work it out myself. It actually made a huge difference being able to get a load off my chest. Simon took the time to listen and understand. I no longer carry the guilt and shame of what I was stuffing deep inside.
