The man that men can talk to...

Counselling for Men

For a lot of men the thought of talking to a relationship counsellor scares the living daylights out of them. Because our culture tells us men should ‘go it alone’ and ‘self-manage’ the problem, men are reluctant to seek the help they need.

Anger Management

Although it is perfectly normal to express anger, after all it is an emotion we all have, sometimes that anger can get out of control. If you find yourself getting angry at the slightest thing, or you stay angry longer than one would expect, then you probably need to consider some anger management counselling sessions.

Hi and welcome to Paul Baker Counselling.

My Counselling practice – PBRcoaching works specifically with smart, motivated men like you who want real results from therapy. If your marriage or relationship is struggling, my individual counselling and couples counselling services in Brisbane can help get your marriage or relationship back on the right track.

Perhaps you find that your wife or girlfriend keeps telling you that it’s you who is the problem, that you’re not “emotionally available”, or you ‘don’t talk’, maybe she keeps reminding you that you’re too angry, or that you’re not meeting her needs. If you are like other men this probably leaves you feeling confused, frustrated and maybe even, as she suggests, angry.

You have probably also been told that you need to “open up more,” or be and act different but the problem is you don’t know how to do that. As a result you feel pressured and the resentment builds. Why is it that she can’t just accept you the way you are?

Is your relationship is heading off the rails because your wife or girlfriend just doesn’t “get” you?

I hear guys tell me that “when we’re good, we’re good,” but those times are few and far between now for you and her. We all understand that you and your mate love each other, but you may not like each other right now.

The reality is that many men are resistant to getting a counsellor for themselves. What is really alarming is that many men and women put off seeing a couples or marriage counsellor for far too long and in many cases when it is just too late. A sad fact is that plenty of men think the relationship or marriage problems will just get better over time, or that they can fix it themselves.

The hope is that by avoiding issues, shutting down or just pushing things aside things will improve. Ultimately, you really do want it to work, because you’re not ready to give up on your relationship. You love each other, and you’ve put so much into your relationship but just can’t do without a counsellor.

Through individual counselling, I’ll work with you to help you find ways to improve your relationship with your partner and to feel better about your relationship.

Through couples counselling I’ll work with you to figure out what’s broken in your marriage or relationship, and to develop the solutions you need to make your relationship more fulfilling.

Together through therapy, we can help you both develop the right tools to reduce conflict, open up to each other and get back to being happy again together.

"When working with Paul I feel as though he is really listening to me and understands what I am trying to say and where I need the help in my life. I feel comfortable and at ease when talking to Paul."

− Alice P. Albany Creek

"The approach that Paul takes is very thorough, systematic and also friendly. He seems to genuinely enjoy the positive effect he has on the lives of his clients. "

− Simon H. Ashgrove

"The most significant change the has come from our time with Paul has been seeing the situation from the other person’s perspective, and this is not just between my husband and I, but also with our friends, family and colleagues. It’s so beneficial now to be a part of a “situation” with another person, and have the insight to empathise with them, rather than just pushing my own agenda."

− Lauren C. Kedron
