Life Transitions & Grief Counseling

Life Transitions Counseling
We all go through life transitions. Some are predictable and expected simply based on our lives and the complexity that they bring. Transitions come in a variety of packages large and small. So here is a short list of some of the life transitions counseling services that may help individuals like yourself to thrive, even in these challenging times.

  • Adoption
  • Career changes
  • Childbirth/postpartum
  • Divorce/separation
  • Family changes
  • Grief and Loss
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Marriage
  • Relocation

These opportunities give us an opportunity to take a closer look at our lives and reevaluate where we are. It gives us a chance to grow, learn, and discover something new. Change is often viewed as being something to fear and avoid at all costs. However, it can also be seen as an exciting time to step out of your comfort zone and expand your opportunities becoming more resourceful in the process.

Your ability to cope with these life transitions depends on a lot of factors including your current mental health, support system, personal resilience and strengths, economics, health, prior transitions, and other stressors.

At NWA Premier Therapy we understand that grief and loss is an inevitable part of the life cycle, and that grief is a normal response to the healing of your loss. Grief impacts everyone and different times in their life. And even thought grief is a normal process some people may have a difficult time with this change. When this happens we encourage people to seek out grief counseling as a way to process through the loss that you are facing.

There are many different kinds of that loss and each person has their own unique experience to each. Some of these include:

  • Death of a partner
  • Death of a family member
  • Death of close friend of colleague
  • Serious illness of a loved one
