Life Transitions

Has your life been touched by a major event such as a death, divorce or layoffs at work?

Are you having a hard time moving through and past emotional turmoil due to unwanted or unexpected changes in your life?

Do you feel completely stuck and like you need guidance getting back on track?

There’s no denying that life often presents us with our fair share of challenges, usually in the form of sudden change. These life transitions, even the positive ones, can throw you into a tailspin and leave you feeling stressed, confused and vulnerable. But with the right tools and mindset, you have the power to not only overcome  adversity but also transform into a more authentic and confident version of yourself.

Change Can be Beneficial

Change, even difficult change that is neither wanted nor expected, can influence personal growth and well-being. Change gives you the opportunity to see what you're made of; to become stronger, more confident, and better prepared for what life throws at you next. With each new challenge, you develop new personal skills and obtain a greater awareness of yourself, leaving you confident and prepared for the next phase in life.

Is it time to speak to a professional therapist?

Sometimes we can handle change and adversity by ourselves and sometimes we need a little help from a professional. I’m here to offer guidance and compassionate support in a warm and encouraging environment where you can speak openly and honestly.

If you or someone you love is struggling with a life transition or unexpected change, please be in touch. You don’t need to go through this alone.
