They key is knowing when to ask the right questions, often responding to hidden invitations that shine between the lines of what’s actually said. The object of the exercise is to find out who you no longer need to be in the world and let it go. This makes space for who you really are to emerge and you can give him a good test-drive amongst other men. It's about building a bridge from the best of who you are into daily life, rather than the group being a safe haven away from the big bad world."
Kenny's mission is to make men's groups as available and accessible as 12-step programmes such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
"If men have a space to speak things out, rather that acting out, bottling up, pushing down or passing on their pain to others then there'll be little need for addiction programmes, less suicides and better mental health all 'round.
The waiting lists for mental health are horrendous, where with peer-to-peer support at our fingertips we can surely nip things in the bud, as we learn from the experiences of and gain support from other men."LEARN MORE
WHAT IS A MEN'S GROUP?
MenSpeak Men’s Groups are a safe and confidential space to hang out, be heard, and get real.
We drop the ‘nice guy’, ‘macho man’, or whatever masks that we’ve been wearing so we can show up, exploring who we really are, rather than having to show off. We learn from one another's experiences and grow from 'maskuline' into authentic masculine.
We acknowledge what we've been through and we accept who and how we've been, as we test-drive who we might want to be, taking the best of our ourselves out into the world.
Many men live in fear and fantasy, second guessing and surviving life, rather than meeting life with embodied presence, purpose, passion and personal power. As authentic men we are able to adjust our sails to harness the winds of change, navigating into bigger, better life for ourselves and those around us.
MenSpeak men's groups are facilitated, not lead, meaning that our spaces are non-hierarchical and non-clinical. We follow the needs of the men present and follow wherever the conversation naturally takes us. There isn’t a right or wrong way of doing things.

Clive D. - Newly Certified Facilitator
Since graduating from the MenFacilitate program, I’ve established a community of other men in my home town. We share what’s going on with our lives and help one another out whenever someone needs a hand. We’ve formed friendships and connections that exist beyond our men’s groups and some of us commit to meeting up in person once a month for mini-golf!”

"I felt a lot better after going to MenSpeak - just like going to the gym. Call it press-ups for the mind and circuit training for the soul.
