NewMastering Male Midlife: Taking control, look after yourself & create the future you want

There is, rightly, a lot of talk about menopause and midlife for women.  Mastering Male Midlife brings a balance and stresses the importance of knowing what may happen for men at this time of life, ways that they can look after their health and wellbeing, and takes a special look at overcoming stress and building resilience.

21st Century men are encouraged to be empathetic, emotionally intelligent, to share their feelings, and to look after themselves.  However, popular culture often ignores the things that can affect them and has even disempowered them, adding to the pressures and society’s expectations.

This session gives an overview of midlife for men.  It looks at the possible physical, “medical” and emotional impacts.  It concentrates on the positive - how to take control and look after ourselves.

The session is aimed at men who want to take control, support themselves, hear the facts and take control to achieve a stronger, positive future

Why is this important to the trainer?

Diversity and Inclusion should include everyone and not focus on any group to the exclusion or disadvantage of any other.  The more everyone understands the possible life experiences of those around them, the better it is for us all.

Roger has worked for many years supporting people in the areas of emotional wellbeing, stress, and resilience.  My passion is helping people to realise more of their potential and to understand how their mind works (non-technically!) and how they can use that knowledge to develop their potential and create an effective vision for their future
