When Therapy Doesn’t Work
What happens when therapy doesn’t work?
For most men, there has been a lot of negative connotations around going to therapy, whether it’s couples therapy, marriage counseling, or therapy on their own.
Some men that come through The Powerful Man say their therapy wasn’t successful because the therapist is a woman and they can’t rely on her to will really understand what they’re going through.
Other men believe the stigma that being in therapy indicates that there is something wrong with them.
Oftentimes, therapy doesn’t work for men because men try to compartmentalize their lives that affect almost every area of their lives, their businesses, their marriages, their health, their finances, and personal happiness.
If therapy doesn’t work for you…try something else!

If you’re given the right roadmap and you’re willing to do the work, then a particular result happens.

Don’t be afraid to make a change.
Know when perseverance is starting to work against you & don’t be afraid to try something different.
Make that call.
