We all face transitions in our lives, a marriage, birth, divorce, illness, infertility, death, job change, a move or financial difficulties. When a particular life event is perceived as very stressful or traumatic, some people experience strong emotional reactions which may affect their everyday lives. Sometimes transitions create relationship difficulties or if they are frequent or cumulative, it may leave the person feeling overwhelmed, depressed, stress and finding it difficult to cope alone.
Unresolved grief or loss can surface during new losses or significant life events. This will increase the intensity of emotions and present emotional difficulties.
Whether life transitions are wanted or unexpected and traumatic, they can cause stress and uncertainty. Therapy can offer a supportive environment to process your feelings around these life changes and build coping strategies to move forward.
