The Challenge

Men often find it hard to talk about how they feel. Talk Club was created to help change that.

A Remedy

Talk Club is a talking (and listening) group for men to get into the practice of learning about and talking about emotions and feelings so it becomes more natural. A kind of mental health insurance policy, protecting men from the pitfalls by proactively preventing them from getting mentally overwhelmed. The group is moderated by myself. It isn't a formal therapy group and isn't here to treat existing mental illnesses (for more reactive and specific support please see Counselling Therapy link here). It's a proactive supportive place for men to talk, listen and learn together.

How does it work?

- The group meets at 8pm on the second Tuesday of each month at BeYoga in Haywards Heath.

- All participants agree before joining that everything discussed within the group remains private and confidential between group members only.

- Each session is 90 minutes and begins with a brief intro explaining how our emotions and feelings work and why managing them matters so much.

- After this a ball is offered up, which allows anyone holding it a chance to speak and limits people talking over each other.

- There is no obligation to hold the ball and speak.  

- Anyone wishing to speak takes the ball and starts by stating how they are feeling out of 10. 1 = very low, 10 = amazing and then have the chance to discuss their score, what's worrying them, what they are happy about and what they are doing to support their mental health.

- This continues around the group in no particular order and without obligation.

- Each session finishes with a chance to review the session and discuss what may have helped so the group can share learnings together.  

How to join in: The group is open to all males aged 16 and over and is funded through voluntary donations at each session. To join the group please email me at to introduce yourself. I aim to reply to all requests within 48hrs.
