Facing a change or transition in life is inevitable for all of us. Change is often accompanied by a feeling of unknow. At times, it can be challenging for us to adapt to the change, find new ways to handle a situation and have the coping skills to successfully deal with the unknown that we are facing.
Negative life changes can understandably take a toll on our life and can be challenging to face. However, it is important for you to know that positive life events are also bringing a change in our lives and can often be accompanied by mixed emotions.
Often people assume that psychological services are only targeted towards anxiety, depression, mental health concerns or while facing a current crisis. Speaking to a psychologist can be helpful even if you are not in significant distress or dealing with a crisis.
People seek therapy after facing a life transition at different stages: You may be feeling significantly distressed and overwhelmed due to a significant change in your life. Alternatively, you may feel that they would like to learn more effective strategies and equip yourself with the resources for dealing with new change in your life that you are facing.
Life transition services can provide you with a safe space to explore the current change that you are dealing and the associated impact on your life, identify your problems, get a better understanding of the factors contributing to your current concerns, as well as develop effective solutions and strategies to mange the transition.
