Hypnosis, NLP, and Counseling for Men's Issues

The Office of Cathy Armstrong RN, LPC-S is located in The Five Oaks Plaza

Hello, my name is Cathy Armstrong and I am a Professional Life Coach, Registered Nurse and Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor that sees adults and children for mental health issues and emotional wellness problems.

I see both men and women for counseling. If you are a man and are looking to have a more satisfying and fulfilling life, counseling or professional coaching might be for you.

You might be wondering why men go to counseling

Golfing man smilingMen’s issues in counseling refers to a variety of concerns that may affect the mental health, physical health, or spirituality of a man that interferes with their quality of life and well being. Many men come to counseling for relationship issues, sexual problems, intimacy issues, infidelity/cheating, anger problems/rage, fatherhood/parenting problems, health concerns and problems with their relationship with God, The Church or feeling spiritually lost.  NLP, Life Coaching, and Hypnosis are the choice  of approach by many clients. There are no insurance deductions to pay, no pre-authorizations required, and the results for change and lasting results occur faster in most cases. 

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy that was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s. NLP is not covered by insurance and is not used with clients with serious mental health diagnoses. NLP is used by some hypnotherapists, professional life and career coaches, and in Corporate America.. It is used by many companies that organize seminars and workshops on management training for businesses.Corporate gurus like Tony Robbins is well known for his work in NLP.

NLP's creators claim there is a connection between neurological processes (neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming), and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. Life coaching and hypnosis tend to work with behavior change, in my experience that traditional psychotherapy and focused more on the here and now and is very goal oriented. Many clients have often reported improvement in a single session.Frustrated woman with man staring down at his phone

Men seek counseling for issues with depression, stress, sexuality concerns, gender identity issues, E. D., sexual performance anxiety, Adult ADD/ADHD, obesity, health issues, self-confidence problems,job concerns, alcohol, drugs, substance abuse problems, rage/anger, career changes, and generalized anxiety and many other reasons. Many times men have repeated similar patterns of anger, control, and emotional abuse to to ones they love. These are usually men with unhappy and abusive childhood that lacked the support of a tender, loving, and kind father. The mother might have failed to protect them from her husband's rage, physical or emotional abuse and have allowed her husband to "rule the home in a selfish, damaging, and controlling way." Men that I see for therapy lack the insight and knowledge many times that they have recreated a similar version of their unhappy childhood and cast it down upon their own innocent children and fear based wives. Many women married to angry and controlling men have "lost their confidence and voice in the relationship" as they walk on eggshell just to keep the peace. Many of these women have issues with codependency and need to help themselves to regain confidence and courage to set healthy boundaries for themselves, the marriage and for the best interest of the children.

Many men I see have issues of poor self-esteem and insecurity about the "manhood" especially if they have erectile dysfunction and are taking pills from the intest, street drugs, or prescribed medications to perform. They might be having mood swings that they are unaware of due to what they are ingesting to make them feel more virile and powerful while on the inside that are just the opposite.

Other men I see have issues with the" Napoleonic Complex." They are short and unable to accept the body that they have and react and behave with aggressive actions and words of criticism towards those they love. They have become the family bully. They live vicariously though their children and can be harsh, unkind, unavailable and yet brag about what a wonderful father and husband they are. Wrong!

If you are feeling stuck, unsure how to achieve your goals, repeating patterns or simply seeking guidance, I can help you move forward, find solutions, overcome fears and unlock your inner wisdom and potential.

I see men that have been told that they have a narcissistic personality disorder of an anti personality disorder. Usually these men are at a cross road in their relationship and their wife, partner, or girlfriend have given them an ultimatum to get help. Many men come in for therapy because someone referred to them as a "gas lighter."
