Elise Micheals is a trauma-informed Men’s Mental Health coach who helps men find purpose and passion again by healing subconscious trauma. Originally a coach for women, she has dedicated her practice specifically to helping men after realizing their lack of support in the mental health space and has been doing it ever since.

From a very early age, men are taught not to feel, which creates disconnection with themselves, disconnection from their desires and their true passion.

More From My Interview With Elise Micheals on How to Gain Back the Power of Being a Man

During my interview with Elise Micheals, we discussed why so many people in society right now, both men and women, are experiencing hopelessness and disengagement. We talked about how this is especially problematic with men because it’s difficult for us to discuss many of these things. I asked Elise if this that something that she finds is common amongst her clients and, if so, how she helps men open up about these things.

Quote by Elise Micheals from the Passion Struck podcast about overcoming trauma

Elise explains, “absolutely. I agree 100% with what you’re saying. Women are strongly encouraged to talk with their friends. Being emotional is okay for us. It’s okay for us to talk about things. For men, it is shamed. From a very early age, men are taught not to feel, which creates disconnection with themselves, disconnection from their desires, and from their true passion. And they’re trained to go into a career that makes a lot of money, but they might not like to just do what they must do.

And they become somebody that they don’t like. That’s why they have these midlife crises. I can have them open up to me because I’m pointing it out. I’m saying listen, this is what’s happening. Do you resonate with it? The men who resist that are the men who are hiding behind the fruits of their labor and not enjoying them. I coach the men who want to enjoy the fruits of their work and no longer hide behind it. If you’re ready for that, you’re gonna see okay; something is not right here.

Many of the men I work with are usually high executives or business owners. So what happens is they do everything themselves, and they’re burned out. They’re always taking care of others and not themselves. They’re never a priority. They have trouble in their personal relationships when it comes to connecting and genuinely being intimate. It’s kind of like they just get stuck at a certain point. They don’t ever have a really great time. It’s like, okay, winning, what’s next? What’s next, what’s next? The focus is always usually on achieving something. Because it’s all external validation, as opposed to internal validation, the burnout, the feeling of not really ever being good enough.”

About Today’s Guest Elise Micheals

Passion Struck with John R. Miles Album cover for episode 156 with men's mental health coach Elise Micheals

With her own exploration of trauma therapy, relationship science, Neuroscience, NLP, and therapy of my own, Elise was able to pinpoint the cycles and behaviors that ultimately always led to my demise.

Now she helps men, as many men are silenced when it comes to emotions. This causes their struggles to be compounded and makes them even more difficult to process.
