Developing Men's Mental Strength
We’re here to help men understand themselves and the world around them better. We help guys improve their mental agility, so they can manage feelings and situations that would otherwise be overwhelming and painful.
About Manifest Wellness
It’s in everyone’s interest for men to evolve. But men who seek to understand themselves better are underserved in the mental health field, and so they tend not to seek out professional help because nothing seems relevant.
That’s why we’ve taken the best practices from personal development psychology to design a counselling and coaching program geared specifically towards men. We’ve created a system that focuses on reasoning, goals and results to increase their likelihood of adoption and comprehension. By developing their mental strength, we help men cope with their feelings and their everyday lives proactively and with fortitude.
This manifests into being better parents, husbands, employees, and human beings in general. Through the act of understanding what’s holding us back, we can realize our full potential.
About 17% of British Columbians – somewhere around 800, 000 people – are experiencing a mental illness or substance use issue today.
By age 40, about 50% of the population will have or have had a mental illness.

Personal Development For Men
All of our Counsellors have a Master’s degree and are Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC), Canadian Certified Counsellors (CCC) or Registered Professional Counsellors (RPC through CPCA). They use a broad array of experience and education to help guys make sense of their situation and develop mental fortitude.
We work with guys to figure out what is holding them back or causing them to malfunction in life. Sometimes it’s historic and sometimes it’s situational, regardless, we help guys identify, articulate and conquer it. By understanding what our barriers are, we resolve them.
Yes. You’ll develop mechanisms that you can trigger yourself so that you don’t need to keep coming back. The goal is for you to be able to counsel yourself into higher performance behaviour in real-time.
We mutually agree on goals, metrics and milestones using a clear process to determine what you need to accomplish by when.
We’ve developed a unique model from the best practices of counselling, coaching and professional development. It’s designed specifically for men.
It depends. We’re here to help you understand yourself and why you act the way you do, which may or may not be related to your childhood. Once we determine the root cause of what’s holding you back, we’ll set goals for your desired life, and help you get it.
No. Most guys come to us without prior history of a condition. Modern life is complex and requires a lot from us. Our ability to comfortably navigate daily life depends greatly on our mental abilities. Guys come to us to develop those abilities. Confronting your limiting aspects and moving towards a more rewarding and satisfying life doesn’t mean you have mental issues. We also successfully work with guys with ‘actual’ diagnoses.
We don’t want women to feel excluded and they’re welcome to come, either for themselves or for help dealing with a man in their life. Just know that we tailor our services specifically towards male behaviours, perceptions and attitudes to increase their understanding of the material. We offer help to women who are worried about a man in their life and we offer to bring spouses and partners into counselling sessions if appropriate. We are inclusive and sensitive to all sexual orientations and gender identities.
All of our Counsellors have a Master’s degree and are Registered Clinical Counsellors (R.C.C), Canadian Certified Counsellors (C.C.C) or Registered Professional Counsellors (RPC through CPCA). These credentials are covered by most third party extended health insurers.
