As Lockdown 2.0 begins today, we are aware of the challenges this might pose to mental health. Specifically, men’s mental health is something which markedly needs attention.
While many of the same difficulties are experienced by both men and women, some difficulties and influences on mental health may be especially relevant for men.
If you feel that life’s challenges are weighing you down, that you are losing balance, and that you need support in finding clarity, you are not alone. Especially within the professional world, the demands of work can dominate your life and get in the way of things that matter to you most. Even more so with the current global situation we find ourselves in, it’s easy to feel like things are spiralling out of control.
If you’re reading this and it resonates with you or someone you know, you might want to consider a professional coach, for yourself or for your organisation.
Andrew Richards is an outstanding local certified coach and specialist in enabling professional men to flourish. His background in VP of sales and Management Consultancy means that he has experienced the pressures and demands of career progression first-hand, all whilst raising a family of 4 children. His extensive experience, wisdom and personable nature all are what make him a remarkable personal coach.
Although many choose to spend their time in coaching to focus on their careers, you can also focus on more personal aspects. Self-confidence, self-awareness and relationships also feature a lot. Andrew has a solid background in health and wellbeing, so you can rest assured that you are in capable and experienced hands.
Andrew can work privately, in groups or in corporate settings. He helps men to break their own cycle, clear the fog and create a strong and meaningful direction for themselves both inside and outside of work:
Choose personal coaching for 1 to 1 support and discovery to give you insights to drive the next chapter in your life. At the end of the coaching you will find that your values are clearer, your choices are easier and you will feel in sync with what you want for the future. Most important of all, you will have built a compelling vision for your life ahead.
In House Coaching
Targeted coaching for businesses. If you believe your employees will benefit from coaching, this can be an excellent investment of resources, either by unlocking latent potential or helping with role transitions
Men’s Growth Crews offer a chance for men to come together without distractions to talk freely and build friendships. Group coaching takes place with a maximum of 8 people per group in a session, and includes men who are in a similar point in life. (There are currently 3 spaces left on the program which runs for the next 10 weeks, so do get in touch now if you are interested!)
Andrew has excellent client testimonials, and that upon speaking with him, you “are immediately enveloped with a feeling of safety and reassurance”, and that he builds “a place of safety and listens with empathy”.
Now that we have another month of lockdown, why not spend some spare time giving your mind the break and clarity it deserves? Andrew has adapted all of his coaching to fit around a busy schedule, and all services are available via video call.
