Life Transition Therapy

What Is A Life Transition?

Life transitions are usually life changing events that cause us to re-examine our present sense of being. They can be predictable - such as children leaving the home or marriage but they can often be unpredictable - such as a move, an accident or a loss.

The Difficulty of Life Transitions

Transitions are difficult because we unconsciously or even consciously resist change. As humans it seems like every fiber of our being is innately programmed to resist anything new or unknown to us, most likely a result of our basic self-preservation instinct. Whether we realize it or not, even good changes like winning the lottery, can cause us to feel stressed and uneasy. On some level, we are simply not comfortable with the unknown.

Your counselor can help to identify these issues and the other adjustment issues as you move forward through the many life transitions that help to create the person we are today.
