A life transition can be can be positive, such as getting married, going away to college, starting a new job, moving to a new city, or giving birth to a child. Others are negative, such as an accident, death, divorce, job loss, or serious illness. Some life transitions are planned and anticipated, and some happen suddenly, without warning. Whether positive or negative, these types of events can be difficult as they force us to make an adjustment in the way we have been living our lives.
Often, life transitions can leave us feeling shocked, angry, sad, and withdrawn. Other times, we may feel fearful or anxious of what is to come and wonder if we made the right decision. If this sounds like you, we may be able to help. At A Peaceful Balance, our counselors are skilled at helping people to develop the coping skills needed to get through life’s transitions. In addition, our counselors can also help you to use this time in your life to learn about your internal strengths and to define what it is you really want out of life.
