Change is a part of life that will always remain constant and unavoidable. Odds are that most people have experienced a significant change in their lives, whether it is positive (beginning a new job) or negative (loss of a job or loved one). While many people can transition smoothly, others may feel like their world has been turned upside down. It is during these times that they may go through stages of emotional discomfort, mourning, or fear, leaving them feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and even depressed. Engaging in therapy to learn healthy coping mechanisms for life transitions can be extremely beneficial for anyone’s mental health and overall well-being.
You counsellor will be able to help you process major upheavals in your life. Through individual counselling or group therapy for life transitions, you will learn strategies that you can use to cope with change in a healthy way and adjust smoothly through any transition.
