Life transitions, or adjusting to changes in your life can be challenging. Certain issues in life such as starting a new job or beginning school, getting divorced, changing jobs or professions, confronting newer and more difficult relationships, changes in sexuality, or anything that presents itself as a unique and difficult change in life is then a treatable concern in Life Transition Therapy. When these changes present themselves with identifiable physical symptoms such as stress, anxiety, or even depression it is then a clear sign an Adjustment Disorder has been clinically established and Life Transition Counseling is a step in the right direction.
Life Transition Therapy involves examining the events that have transpired, understanding the meaning derived from it, identifying alternatives, and then implementing beneficial coping strategies. Although Life Transition Therapy may seem similar to Grief and Loss Therapy, the element of deep personal losses is missing and therefore has to be worked through in a different manner. Also, there other factors that can be taken into account that can enhance the therapeutic process such as utilizing community resources that can provide assistance, identifying and accepting help from familial and other social support systems, and understanding and working with your available financial situation. This list is not exhaustive and each situation is different for every individual so learning about you and your unique situation is vital in reaching constructive solutions.
Several important steps in Life Transitions Therapy involve; understanding and accepting the upcoming changes, finding ways of limiting its impact on you, processing whatever difficulties you may have, finding ways of tending to your physical, emotional, and mental well-being, and implementing relaxation techniques suitable to you. Such techniques such exercise, yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises, and encouraging hobbies that fill your time with constructive activities have been found to help many other of our other clients.
