Fitzgerald Williams "Fitz"
I’m Fitzgerald Williams, I am a son, a brother, a husband, and a father. I was raised in ‘back of town’, played football for Dandy Town and Young Men’s Social Club.
Like all men, even those that won’t readily admit it, I have problems too. I have needed counselling during some really difficult periods in my life, most notably after the death of my best friend. I am evidence that counselling for guys can work, but I also know that if not done right, it can be uncomfortable, frustrating and ineffective for men. I offer a non-traditional counselling approach, in a trusting, non-threatening environment that prioritizes the unique needs of a man.
I have been counselling, mentoring and working with guys exclusively for almost 15 years. I employ a person-centered approach highlighting thought processes and increasing awareness to patterns of thinking to improve behavioral outcomes. I don’t profess to have all of the answers and there isn’t any magic pill, but I can provide you a safe non-judgmental space and help guide you along a road less travelled by men where we can seek resolution to your problems together.
