Retirement. Downsizing. Illness or death of friends or family. Surgeries and other healthcare procedures.
The changes and major life events that accompany growing older can be difficult to navigate. Professional counseling, or talk therapy, can help you address the twists and turns that come later in life, and improve your perspective of these significant events. With guidance, your time of transition can be a time of transformation.
Maybe asking for support as you navigate major life events isn’t “your thing,” or you’re embarrassed. Maybe you think counseling is only helpful for people with serious mental illness.
Maybe it’s time to take another look at counseling.
Here are ways that counseling can be an effective tool for coping and adapting to major life changes.
