Over the last few years thank fully more and more men are engaging and experiencing the benefits of talking to a professional counsellor about their personal issues and challenges. We all need someone to talk to who is non judgemental, really listening and honest in their responses. When you talk to a friend they will often end up talking about themselves and their issues, which is not allowing the focus to be you.
Everyone benefits from talking without interruption about how they feel and will often during counselling find a great sense of relief in being heard. Quite often men will talk about their issues with their barber, their local barman or seek solace in social media just to try and find some relief none of which really helps you to find some resolution and a way forward in a more productive way.
The outdated attitude that men should resolve their own issues has moved into a place in the past.
As an organisation we are delighted to see more men coming into counselling. However for a lot of men working with a male counsellor is more comfortable as they find it easier to speak with another man.
Our male counsellor Tom has many years of experience working with men. He is married with grown up children and a very proud grandfather. He will work with you from a place of honesty, respect and compassion.
We aim to ensure that every client feels safe in the knowledge that they have found a professional organisation that understands the challenges and concerns they face when they decide to seek assistance. When you contact Nightingale we will respond immediately to all enquiries and can guarantee an appointment within 48 hours. Contact us on 0141 353 9373, Email us or complete our online Enquiry Form.
"Having worked with Tom now for a number of weeks I can confidently say he has changed my life. From the moment I walked into counselling for the first time, he instantly made me feel at ease and that I had known him for years. For me this shows his high level of skill and experience that he has in this field. After being in the room with him for no more than ten minutes, all of my nerves dissipated and instantly I felt completely at ease. As a result of this, in the first session I actually shared things that I had never shared with anyone else in my life, which was an unbelievable feeling of relief. Everything about Tom, from his understanding, knowledge and experience to the way he makes me feel like I have known him my whole life makes my weekly session with Tom a huge focus for me. Tom is one of the most genuine individuals I have ever met. There is nothing false or staged about him, everything is natural and honest which in itself is so reassuring. I have met individuals in the past who have been in similar jobs to Tom and not one of them has the skills, experience and genuine desire to help, support and comfort. Tom is an exceptional man and I am just so grateful that I have been lucky enough to be introduced to him and work with him."
"It's quite a big step when you decide to start counselling. Talking to a complete stranger about very personal things would not come easily for most men, but Tom is able to put you at ease almost immediately and after a couple of sessions you feel like you're talking to an old friend. One who understands you as well and is very perceptive about what your issues are. I was reluctant to take that initial step, but I'm now very glad I did. Tom helps you think straight again and in a very gentle way. Nothing heavy. Just a guiding hand. The old saying about every journey starting with a single step is very true here. Tom was to me, in cosmological terms, divinely sent. My relationship with Tom was, in my opinion, of an unsurpassable sort. Tom did indeed facilitate answers for me."
"I would like to thank Nightingale very much for the kindness and understanding afforded to me during my recent times with them. I would especially like to thank my counsellor Tom for his patience, kindness, help and understanding given to me during my sessions with him. Like a lot of people I did not know what to expect when first arranging to meet with him but my sessions have provided me with understanding confidence and strength to go forward with my life following the death of my dear wife. Should the situation ever arise I would have no hesitation in recommending Nightingale."
"At 51 my major issues were Alcohol and Anger which Tom identified within one session. With Toms continued advice and support through this journey I have now achieved 28 months complete sobriety. My mental, Physical and spiritual health are now better than any other period of my life. I truly believe that this positive attitude and serenity could not have been achieved without Toms Influence, professionalism and continued guidance. Tom is a truly remarkable, humble, human being and I would not hesitate to recommend his and nightingale services. I'm also honoured to be asked to write a brief testimonial for Tom."
