Therapy for Loss & Life Transitions
Has your life been touched by a major loss or change such as a death, breakup or divorce, or serious illness? Are you having a hard time moving through and past the emotional turmoil and overwhelm? Are you feeling stuck, alone, afraid, angry, or deep, deep sadness?
The process of adapting to a loss or transition can dramatically change from person to person, depending on one’s background, beliefs, relationships, and other factors.
Common symptoms can be physical, emotional or social, such as:
Loss of appetite
Feelings of sadness and yearning
Feelings of worry or anger
Feelings of frustration or guilt
Feeling detached from others
Self-isolation from social contact
Behaving in ways that are not normal for you
There’s no denying that life often presents us with our fair share of challenges, including sudden change or loss. These life transitions or losses, can throw us into a tailspin and leave us feeling stressed, confused and vulnerable.
Is it Time to Speak to Someone?
Every person’s experience of loss or transition is different. Some may be able to continue their day-to-day routine after one loss, yet not be able to get out of bed after another. Whatever your personal symptoms are, therapy (including EMDR and IFS therapy) has been proven to help.
If you or someone you love is struggling with a loss or life transition and would like to explore treatment options, please be in touch. You don’t need to struggle alone.
