Supportive Therapy for Life Transitions

Navigating life's transitions can often feel like embarking on a journey into the unknown.

We will all experience life transitions from time to time as we go through different stages in our life. Whether you graduate college, change careers, get married, get divorced, have a baby, become an empty nester or experience a new move to begin a new future, life can sometimes present us with these different challenges and changes to handle.

When one period in our life ends and a new unfamiliar period begins, we sometimes find these life transitions to be filled with uncertainty, which can cause distress, feeling lost, and even an inability to cope.

"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf." - Jon Kabat-Zinn

What Are Life Transitions?

Life transitions are common to all of us. Simply put, life transitions are the way we move through life experiences. It’s us ending one experience in life and starting a new one. We all go through different stages of our lives, but we tend to experience these stages at different times.

Some of us get married earlier than others, some of us have children later in life and some of us start our dream job after we have gone through years of school. Some of us have had experiences in our life that have made our transitions through life a little more difficult. And some of us have gotten a little stuck.

Why Seek Help For Life Transitions?

Life transitions can be exciting, overwhelming, stressful, and full of joy. You can be so excited you are moving or starting that new job or getting married, but you can also feel scared and unsure of this next big step in your life.

You can feel both excited and scared and because of this may not understand how to manage all these feelings or cope with the stressors that occur during these times. You may not know what the right step is for you. You may be struggling with an important decision around your relationships, career, or sport. And as a result can have feelings of distress, discomfort and increased anxiety.
