Life is a journey that begins when we are born and ends when we die. Our intent is to have a happy and fulfilling life that we enjoy and can cope with. However, all along the way we come across obstacles and face many stages and changes that are challenging; birth, death, schooling, graduation, marriage, divorce, kids leaving home, new jobs, losing old jobs: to name just a few. These challenges and stages are endless in our lifetime and can sometimes create fear, uncertainty, and anxiety. However, we have to make our way through these stages and implement the changes that are necessary to move our life back into balance again.
If you can relate to some of these modes of reacting to the transitions in your life, then perhaps it is time to seek help from a counselor. They are there just for you. They will help you through the hard times so you can feel more whole and ready to handle the next challenge... the next transition in your life.
Getting back on track after a difficult time is never simple. It takes a measure of self-knowledge and self-understanding to recognize when you need someone else to help you through. Think of therapy as a special relationship with another person that has your best interest at heart; a person who will help you turn a difficult time in your life into a significant opportunity to learn, grow and change.
If I were to become your therapist, this is what you can expect. I would focus on moving you through the difficult transitional times you are experiencing. I would assist you in discovering what hasn’t worked for you so far and help you to recognize and utilize your own unique strengths and talents for effectively getting through whatever type of transition you were experiencing.
