Change may be the only constant, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come without inherent struggles.
Life transitions can trigger all sorts of intense reactions. Fear, excitement, guilt, sadness, anger. It’s normal to experience the entire spectrum of emotions.
Unfortunately, many people struggle to know how to cope or take care of these emotions. Instead, they might pretend they don’t exist. They might guilt themselves for having the emotions in the first place. They might even believe they can’t handle sitting with strong emotions.
All growth- even when it’s positive- can be stressful.
It’s so important that we honor the parts of us that feel afraid, insecure, or regretful when change happens. And yes, this applies even when the change is exciting and anticipated!
The change may be concrete. You may be leaving a toxic relationship. You may be finally starting your own business. Or, you may have started a family. And yet, even when everything falls into place, things may still feel unsettled or even disappointing.
Growth can also be very abstract and hard to define.
We grow when we decide to change parts of ourselves. You may decide you’re ready to start being more vulnerable in your relationship. You feel ready to talk about that trauma from your past. Or, perhaps, you want to start learning how to lean into self-compassion and self-acceptance.
These changes may seem less straightforward. But, they have an undeniable impact on your well-being. And they can still be hard- very hard.
Life transitions therapy can be immensely valuable as you navigate this growth and transition.
Some clients decide to seek emotional support when they feel stagnant in their lives. If this is you, you know something needs to change, even if you aren’t exactly sure what it is.
You may have already committed to making some changes. Yet, you might not feel confident that you’ve taken the best steps. In addition, change, even when it’s necessary or beneficial, can be hard.
Life transitions therapy allows you to explore your feelings, needs, and desires during this time. This is depth work, and while it can be challenging, it can also inspire you to live a life that brings you immense joy and satisfaction.
All sustainable growth starts with single steps.
It doesn’t matter if you’re still brainstorming a big change or if you’ve already taken that leap. It doesn’t matter if the change was planned or not. You still deserve support and guidance.
Life transitions therapy can be one of the most valuable, transformative investments of your time and money.
