Men don’t go to therapy as much as women do, and there is some evidence that therapy isn’t set up in a way that is appealing for men.

So where does a man go as an alternative to therapy?

Join John Barry in the pub to hear about evidence from research on this subject.  

This event is free and open to everyone.

There is no need to book so please just turn up on the night.

St Olaves Hotel,
18-22 Mary Arches St,

Event Location: 

Dr John A Barry

After completing his psychology PhD in 2011 at City University London, Dr Barry joined University College London’s Institute for Women’s Health at the UCL Medical School. While there, he pioneered the use of guided imagery to change hormone levels in women suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome.

Since 2010 has published around 50 papers on clinical and health psychology in various peer-reviewed journals, including international-standard journals in gynaecology, cardiology and ophthalmology.

Prompted by the considerable suicide rates among men and the establishment’s inertia in dealing with men’s mental health problems, in 2011 John initiated a research programme investigating the mental health needs of men and boys. John specialises in research methods (especially surveys and questionnaire development) and statistical analysis (e.g. meta-analysis, meta-regression).

John is one of the founders of the Male Psychology Network, and a campaigner for the establishment of a Male Psychology Section of the BPS http://www.malepsychology.org.uk/
