New Weekly Online Men’s Group: EQ/IQ

Starting on 10th November at 18:00 (CET), the weekly online men’s group, “EQ/IQ” launches.  As men, we often focus on our cognitive intelligence (IQ) and de-prioritise our emotional intelligence (EQ).  This group aims to bring the two together.

It will provide a fun, safe and challenging opportunity to explore who you are and how others see you.

Most men would rather pluck out their own eyebrows rather than join a men’s group.  It seems to conjure up images of men sitting in a circle in the middle of a forest, holding hands and chanting.  (Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!).

 

However, given a safe and appropriate environment, men often welcome the opportunity to explore issues in relation to anger, conflict, aggression and healthy sex.  Men often crave the emotional tools to create and enjoy more meaningful relationships.  At the end of the day, we all want and deserve to live meaningful lives.

This is an opportunity for a small group of men to explore issues such as, do you:

 

  • Hold back from expressing your feelings or needs?
  • Avoid showing vulnerability?
  • Associate emotions with weakness?
  • Sometimes act out your emotions in addictive ways?
  • Feel like a failure or inadequate in your relationships?
  • Experience a general sense of loneliness or isolation?
  • Struggle with commitment?
  • Your relational conflicts go unresolved?

 

The group will be facilitated by Gavin Sharpe thereby providing focus, safety and structure. Sessions will typically begin with a short check-in, followed by a discussion topic.  The group is interactive with all members encouraged to participate and share.

 

This is a closed group.  To protect the safety and integrity of the group, a 6-week attendance commitment is required.  After that, members may leave the group or others may be invited to join.

 

If you are interested in joining, Gavin offers a free consultation to discuss if this particular group is suitable.  The group is kept intentionally small to ensure that each participant has time to give and receive feedback and it also fosters a sense of safety.

 

Fee €50 per person, per session.
