Why Men’s Groups?

As humans we need to feel that we belong to a tribe, with a sense of community and connection. Men can isolate from other men and pretend everything’s ok, rather than gently opening up and sharing what’s really going on for them.

Men’s groups provide a space for men to explore what’s going on beneath the surface, experiment with who they've been , who they want to be and who they no longer need to (pretend to) be as we listen, learn and laugh with other men.

If you’d like to facilitate your own men’s group, professionally or in your own community, then join us for our full day MenFacilitate workshop led by Kenny Mammarella D’Cruz, a men's life coach with over two decades worth of experience in facilitating groups.

What You’ll Learn

During this full day introductory workshop you will experience a MenSpeak men's group and learn how to facilitate your own, your own way. You’ll learn how to draw forth deeper discussion and respectfully respond from your centre, without judgment or influence. You’ll learn about group dynamics, body language and masculine psychology as well as the nitty gritty details such as time-keeping, setting up the room , holding the space and professional boundaries.

The skills you’ll learn have a far broader reach than just men’s groups. You can apply them anywhere and everywhere, from your home to your workplace, to any community, educational, or professional group and meeting.

Who’s It For?

You don't have to be a therapist, counsellor, coach or professional working with people to attend this training. In fact, you don't even have to be male! If you want to facilitate men's groups, conscious conversations, self-aware transparent non-hierarchical gatherings, personal and community development spaces - then this is the workshop for you!

This is a stand-alone core training, for which you will receive a (beautiful) certificate of attendance.

Who's This Kenny Guy Anyway?

Your facilitator, Kenny Mammarella-D'Cruz, was called "The Man Whisperer" in a chapter on his men's groups in a 'Newsweek' book about men's health and wellbeing. 'The Daily Express' called Kenny "coach, consultant and guru of all things men", and he was recently interviewed in a 'Sunday Times' Style magazine article about his MenSpeak men's groups and the lives they touch.

Kenny's MenSpeak men's groups have made mainstream TV and radio from Channel 4, the BBC, ITV, SkyTV and Huffington Post TV, plus lots of local, online and podcast shows. He's a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, the Good Man Project, InsideMAN, Southbank's Being A Man festival, etc. Kenny won an award from The ManKind Project for his work with men.

"I love what I do and I do what I love, which is sharing my tools, techniques and life tips so that others can take care of themselves and those they love, as they contribute to and receive from their communities and consciously come alive with who they really are."

Kenny is currently writing a chapter on men's groups and how to facilitate them, for an academic book. On the back of that he is planning to release an eBook and video series to support this training in 2018.
