Common stressors that set in motion potentially significant life transitions:
Relationships Employment Moving Family Children Injuries and illness Aging and loss
I offer support, reflection, help in thinking things through, the development of resources, and making sense of it all. Whatever the issue, knowing how to manage yourself in times of change and uncertainty is key.
For example, in facing a loss, our reflex or instinct may be to hold on tighter (become controlling) or to give up entirely (falling into depression). Recognizing this, and learning to “soften the grasping” or to “firm-up the surrender” empowers us to navigate change with a sense of competence.
By managing how we go through something, we are better able to influence the outcome.
