I am very pleased to announce that I will be running the Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Prostatitis Support Groups in central London again. The support groups will provide an opportunity for men suffering with CPPS and CP to meet face to face. The groups will allow a safe, non-threatening, non-judgemental space for chaps to talk openly, honestly and frankly about their conditions. 

My name is Karl Monahan, I am the owner of The Pelvic Pain Clinic, where I exclusively treat male pelvic pain, including CPPS, CP and Hard Flaccid (HF).  I myself have suffered with acute and chronic pelvic pain in my mid 20’s and know first hand what it is like to try to manage with and deal with pelvic pain

History of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Prostatitis Support Groups

I set up the first CPPS and CP support groups 8 years ago when I was working at the Prostate Centre, Wimpole St. The initial groups came off the back of several conversations with my patients about wanting to feel less alone, isolated and poorly understood by those closest to them. These patients wanted to be able to speak openly with like minded people who knew exactly what it was like to suffer with these conditions. CPPS and CP can be very isolating, leaving the patient feeling that no-one understands what they have to go through. I wanted to change this and so I set up the UK’s first support groups for men with these conditions. 

Now in 2018 I am in a position to get back to running these groups again and provide the necessary support for men with CPPS and CP.

What to expect in the Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Prostatitis Support Groups

These Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Prostatitis Support groups will be inviting, welcoming and supporting. You will not be asked to stand up to the whole group and tell everyone all about yourself. Instead we will always start with paired discussions, or 1-2-1’s with another suffer. I will then combine pairs to make small groups of 4 – 6 to discuss topics in a little more of a group setting. At the end of the sessions we will get back together as a large group and discuss key elements from the session. If this is too much you are always welcome to just sit and observe or listen and to join in when and if you feel comfortable enough to do so. 

Each meeting will carry a different focus, aim or topic based on what you as a group want to cover. Although I plan on co-ordinating these groups they are very much for you and will be directed by what you wish to address. In addition I aim to have guest speakers involved to come and provide expertise and experience across selected group meetings.

I aim to start these support groups again in September 2018.  If you are interested in attending these support groups please email karl@thepelvicpainclinic.co.uk for more details or follow the link to my contact page 

Please feel free to spread the news of these groups on the chat rooms, forums and support groups you attend, visit, follow etc.

Please find below a sample of some of my patient testimonials from over the years. I have not included them ALL here. Instead I have picked a handful of those that demonstrate a wide range of my skill sets, outcomes and patient opinions. I would therefore hope that you are able to gauge how I approach my methods of treatment. If you have any questions regarding any of these comments below or would like to know more about my treatment please contact me here

My aim is to take every individual patient I see and treat them as individuals. If I am not achieving this then I believe I am letting down that patient. It is therefore imperative that my approach is bespoke and tailored. Failure to do so is likely to result in an unsuccessful outcome.

From those testimonials listed below I hope to give you a flavour of what you can expect if you come and see me as a patient.
