    Getting out of your isolation

    • You come to the obvious that the situation can only deteriorate, that you risk losing everything if nothing changes?
    • You can’t hide the reality anymore?
    • You think that you would probably need help, but you hesitate to take steps, out of fear of being judged and misunderstood?
    • We offer you the opportunity to meet with professionals who can help you reflect and question the way you manage your relationships with your partner and children.
    • Through group meetings, you have the opportunity to talk with other men who are experiencing similar difficulties and to find the necessary support in order to pursue your process of change.
    • This process cannot be undertaken without some difficulty. Deep and lasting changes require a sincere involvement on your part. No matter what you consider doing, the decision is ultimately your own.
