dc.description.abstractThis thesis used a self-reporting online survey to gather firsthand knowledge of men’s help-seeking behaviour. Research into men’s unwillingness to accept help generally, and more specifically for psychotherapy, is reviewed. The purpose of this study is to explore societal and personal barriers which influence men’s willingness to seek support for mental health issues. The survey, created by the researcher, included Likert and open-ended questions. Men’s responses revealed that conformity to masculine norms inhibit healthy help-seeking behaviour. Possible ways of changing traditional male attitudes towards counselling are discussed and further areas of research identified.en_US
