There are many milestones in a person’s life: leaving home, managing serious or committed relationships, deciding to leave an unsatisfying relationship, career changes or promotions, deciding to go back to study, moving cities or countries, when your children leave home, aging, to name just a few.
Many of the other headings here can also be responses to life changes, which can be positive or negative or a mixture. You may develop temporary symptoms such as anxiety or quite the opposite, a sense of possibility you want to make the most of, depending on the life change and your own circumstances.
Therapy can support you to understand what your choices are, the decisions you need to make, what would be best for you, and your own decision making process and how to make it work for you. It can be a time to re-assess what is important to you.
Therapy can help you explore all your options, even if it’s a change that you did not have a say in, and you are not sure how to manage the transitions you are going through.
