It can be true that women are thought of as being better about talking about their feelings and their emotions, and quite often they may have very good support networks and very close friendships, but from my perspective, I think there is a difference between seeking out the advice of friends and going to see a therapist, and I think the main one is friends very much want to collude with you. You know, they to say, "You're absolutely right," or, you know, "What you need to do is...," and really give you advise about what to do. Whereas the key difference with a therapist, is they want to sit alongside you and work out, from your perspective, what your choices are and what the best way forward is. So whilst friendships and friends' advice can be really useful and very, very supportive, I think a therapist can offer something very different.
