Life Transitions Therapy

What is Life Transitions Therapy and how does it work? A life transition can relate to any change or adjustment in your life that impacts you in an important and sometimes critical way, they also relate to expected transitions in a child’s life. These important changes in your daily life routine can involve endings as much as new beginnings.

Adjusting to change can be difficult, even if the change is ‘good’. Big transitions through adult life such as marriage, a new job, the death of a loved one, being diagnosed with a life-altering illness or dealing with chronic pain, coming out as LGBTQ+, having a child, pregnancy loss, retirement, or moving house might all create challenges that you didn’t expect.

The type of life transitions therapy that is appropriate depends on you and your situation. You might choose group therapy, where you can express your feelings with people who have gone through something similar to you. If it’s something that affects your whole family, family therapy might be suitable, or you may choose individual therapy.

Issues and events that bring up feelings from your past might be best worked through with a psychotherapist, while some issues might require more practical, forward-looking counselling. Some therapists are trained in working with specific life transitions issues (such as grief or careers), but almost any type of therapy is likely to be beneficial in helping you cope with a dramatic change in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy For Life Transitions?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.
