Family Care & Men's Health
Your practitioners at Living Stillness have first hand experience with children and families of their own - ranging from single parenting, married, parenting babies, toddlers, children, tweens & teenagers.
In any family, it is first and foremost, important to bring understanding. With understanding and allowing space for ourselves and others, we can nurture an environment from which everyone can grow. The health and well-being of a family unit comes from the quality of how it is held, with the space for everyone to feel supported to be themselves.
Sessions in Family Care have a focus on support within the family unit. This may be a family with children and therefore more about parenting and family dynamics or it may be about family dynamics among adults and grown children.
All too often, the relationship issues we have are with the ones who are closest to us, so bringing understanding and having support to gain greater insight into the relationships, can be of great value.
Family challenges can be difficult, yet at the same time are very revealing and provide a great opportunity for healing long-held patterns in relationships.
With understanding and allowing space for ourselves and others, we can nurture an environment from which everyone can grow. The health and well-being of a family unit comes from the quality of how it is held, with the space for everyone to feel supported to be themselves.
Society has indoctrinated a way of being for men that subverts their natural sensitivity, tenderness and gentle loving ways. This imposition rejects the man’s beautiful innate qualities and dictates that the only way to survive in life is to be hard and toughen up. At Living Stillness we have a genuine interest in supporting men to re-connect to their inner qualities and let go of the burdens that living from ingrained behaviours produce and return to the lightness, sweetness and deeply caring and sensitive nature all men are born with. We support men in all areas of their Health & Well-being.

Australian statistics tell us:
Suicide is the highest cause of death for young men
Suicide accounts for 1 in 5 deaths in men aged 25 - 44
Men are twice as likely as women to have substance abuse problems
1 in 2 men will have cancer by the time they are 85
At any one time, 1 in 8 men are experiencing
Over half of all Australian men have
experienced some sort of mental health condition during their lifetime
2 in 3 men are reported to be overweight or obese
1 in 3 men over the age of 40 will have a reproductive health problem
1 in 3 men at any one time are living with a chronic health condition
These statistics are a clear indication that as a society we need more consideration, understanding & attention towards the health of our men.
It is time to question deeply the way we hold ourselves as men – for the betterment of all – so that we can re-connect to and express from the deeply caring and courageous men that we would want our young children to know us to be.
