Life Transition Counseling – Counselors and Therapists in Round Rock, TX
Sometimes we are going along in life, everything seems ok enough, and something big happens. Someone loses a job, goes to jail, hurts the relationship, a child gets hurt or is struggling, someone makes a painful mistake. Sometimes it’s not even an event we can point at, sometimes it is a slow and gradual change or decline. Sometimes it’s not even something bad on the surface, such as a new job.
Whatever it is, it’s hard. Sometimes it sneaks up on us, like a slow and gradual increase in stress until you look up and realize it is just so hard. Many times people come to a counselor for something that is easily pointed to as “mental health related” such as depression or bipolar disorder. However, at least as often, people with no real history of mental health problems come to therapy as well. The world is a hard and complicated place, and we are long past the point where any one person can reasonably expect to know and cope with everything. Most people can cope with small scale difficulties of any sort, but sometimes it is just helpful to get a professional. For most people, you can try to fix minor electrical issues around the house, but there is no shame in calling an electrician when it is past your expertise. For many people, counseling is just like that. A way to discuss life with someone who has made it their profession to help people with it.
Counseling is not always long term, many people come in for a “tune up” or just some extra support during a difficult time. We all have a breaking point, we all have a point where we may handle a situation with less tact or skill than we could have.
