We all experience significant changes in life at one time or another. The death of a loved one, separation or divorce, loss of a job, injury, and illness are all times which can bring about considerable feelings of grief and uncertainty. Even exciting and joyful transitions such as getting married, having a baby, moving, getting a promotion or a new job, or retirement can bring about challenges and overwhelming stress. It is normal and natural to feel worried or apprehensive about these changes and to experience feelings of self-doubt and uncertainty.
During periods of significant change, many people seek out a counselor simply for support, assistance managing stress, and to help navigate the social, emotional, and even practical changes related to the transition.
