Mantalk

Shame. Guilt. Anger. Depression. Anxiety. Powerlessness. 

If you have survived trauma of any kind, then it is likely that you will have experienced at least one of these powerful emotions affecting your everyday life. Nearly 6 in 10 men feel that society expects a man to always be emotionally strong. And 1 in 3 men never talk about their feelings to anyone else.  It’s time to break the silence.  

We provide a safe, welcoming, personal space to get trauma-informed support.

Led by BACP registered, integrative psychotherapist, Nic Auerbach, MANTALK! is a free, weekly drop-in where you can just be…your real self. 

Let’s Break The Silence Together – every Thursday @ 13.00.
