Get a sneak peek inside a MenFacilitate workshop:

Coaches, therapists, masculinity experts, leaders of men - including women and anyone who wants to empower men through sharing and listening. Is this the gift you'd like to take to your community?

When men have problems they can isolate and pretend everything’s ok, usually out of fear of being rejected, humiliated or abandoned.

Men in general prefer side-by-side communication, and find it easier to open up in male only spaces, yet the only services offered to them are talking therapies which are face-to-face and mainly staffed by women.

Men's groups are a confidential, non-clinical and non-hierarchical means of empowering men to live beyond their issues into healthy, connected lives.

Most people don't know how to handle anyone opening up and speaking their truth - let alone men, with all their stereotypical prejudices of 'cool, calm and collected'. There's a tendency to try to 'fix' by saying things like: "You shouldn't be feeling like that" or "Man up and pull yourself together" - both of which cause the speaker to shut down or withdraw.

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 judgement or influence.

You’ll learn about group dynamics, body language and male psychology, time-keeping, setting up the room, holding a safe space and professional boundaries.

The skills you’ll learn will have a far broader reach than just men’s groups. You can apply them anywhere: your home, workplace, community, educational, professional groups and meetings.

This is a stand-alone core training, for which you'll receive a certificate of attendance.
