Everyone goes through change in their life, and life transitions can be difficult for anyone to deal with. However, change is, to some degree, good for our physical body, mental strength, and overall capacity to manage stress. But a stressful transition shouldn’t completely take over someone’s life.
Life transitions and changes in general can be thrown at us from a variety of different directions. For adults, some of the big transitions that need adjusting to may include moving into a new area, starting or leaving a relationship, parenting for the first time, or changing careers. For children and adolescents, their transitions may include losing a parent, their parents getting divorced or remarried, blended families, new siblings, and moving to new areas.
It may be easier for some people to adapt to change than others. Some people may find themselves struggling to cope with a transition despite having a large support network of family and friends. Other struggle to effectively navigate a transition because they have a small or non-existing support network. At You and Me Forever, we are there to help individuals, couples, and families struggling with the many transition’s life throws at us.
Transition therapy can help you transition into your new way of living, reduce stress, and enable you to feel like yourself again. It is best to seek help from a counselor who has specific experience with the transition you may be struggling with; for example, a person having trouble transitioning into a new relationship might seek out a marriage counselor; a parent who is worried about the birth of a child might go to a family counselor; and a refugee or recent immigrant would benefit from seeking a therapist who was once in those situations. You and Me Forever can point you in the right direction to solve your challenges, ensure you get the right help, and empower you to regain your life.
