When Are You Most Likely To Need Counselling?

“The only thing in life that is constant is change” and change is a necessary part of our development as individuals. However change involves  swapping what is familiar with what is not. This can be very  unsettling and if we lack confidence in ourselves, the people around us or feel that the world is fundamentally unsafe than we may be ill equipped to deal with the transitions that life often demands that we make. It is at these times that our Achilles heel (whatever that may be) is most likely to become exposed and hinder our path through the transition. It is therefore at these times that we are most likely to need some kind of counselling to equip us with the skills necessary for us to move through to the next phase of our lives. The following life changes or transitions will be encountered by most of us at some point:

  • Starting school/university
  • Starting a new job/career
  • Starting a new relationship/getting married
  • Having children
  • Facing the end of a relationship /divorce
  • Loss/death of a loved one
  • Moving home
  • Retiring
  • Discovering sexuality
