Mood Swings 101

Mood swings are a marked shift in our emotional state. But if your response to moodiness is anger and violence, it can impact your relationships, career and life. Know that with help, mood disorders in men are manageable.

Mood Disorders in Men

Society expects men to be moody, and so we assume that being temperamental is part of our DNA. But what we don’t realize is that regularly shifting from cool to hot can negatively affect our careers, relationships, and life.

Moods are a temporary state of mind that may or may not be triggered by a situation. Moods can last for minutes or weeks, and despite their temporary nature, they often feel absolute. Sometimes our personalities dictate what type of moods we are prone to experience. Stress and anxiety can also cause our mood to shift quickly.

If we experience mood swings often or notice moods are driving negative outcomes, there might be an underlying issue. Identifying the causes of our moods can help us navigate the shifts and lead a balanced life.

Treating Mood Swings

While moods are unavoidable, they are manageable. To help you manage your mood swings, we’ll first investigate their root causes, which might be due to your personality, stress, substance abuse, or other mental health issues. We’ll then use counselling and coaching to work together and look at your attitudes and behaviours to explain what’s holding you back and how to think differently. Finally, we teach you the tools you need to treat your own issues and get on with life.

Left untreated, mood swings can develop into mood disorders like depression, which distorts how you think and feel on a longer-term basis.

Taking Action

I just needed a practical way of working through the problem. I didn’t want to be on the couch. I wanted to take action.

Honest Talk

It’s a refreshing way of looking at myself. I’ve tried counselling before, but this is more honest. More objective. More real.
