Counseling for Life Transitions
It has been said that change is the one thing that we can count on happening in life. And with change often comes resistance. As humans, we are wired to resist what is unfamiliar, new or unknown. This is most likely a result of our basic self-preservation instinct.
A major life transition literally closes one chapter of life and begins another, heading us in a direction we are often unfamiliar with. It is not uncommon to experience intense feelings of fear, doubt and uncertainty, even in the face of positive life changes.
Common major life changes/transitions:
- Job loss
- Becoming a parent
- Entering the “empty nest” stage of life
- Death of a loved one
- Becoming a caregiver
Cognitive behavioral therapy for life transitions can assist in gaining the tools and skills necessary to overcome our resistance and to help navigate life’s transitions in a stronger, more confident and more resilient way.
