Starting Life transitions counseling

What is life transition therapy?

At Thriveworks, Life transitions counseling is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on helping individuals navigate major life changes, adjustments, and transitions. The specific approach and techniques used in this type of therapy can vary depending on the individual's needs and the nature of the transition. Life transitions counseling is designed to provide support, coping strategies, and a safe space for individuals to explore and process their experiences.

How does life transition counseling work?

Life transitions counseling starts with an initial assessment where the therapist gathers information about your specific transition, emotional state, concerns, and goals. In this supportive and non-judgmental space, you can process the myriad of emotions that often accompany life transitions, including stress, anxiety, and grief. The counseling process also focuses on helping you to adapt to changing circumstances, set new goals, make informed decisions, maintain healthy relationships, explore evolving identities, and access ongoing support throughout the transition.

Why are life transitions so hard?

Life transitions are difficult because they alter our sense of what is “normal”, affecting our relationships, routines, work life, home environement, health, and much more.

How can I make my life transitions easier?

The best way to make your life transitions easier is to seek the assistance of a counselor who can offer you Life transitions counseling to help address and adapt to the changes you are experiencing.

Is life transition counseling conducted in person or online?

Life transitions counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does life transition counseling last?

The length of life transitions counseling can differ widely, depending on an individual's specific needs and the changes happening in their life. Typically, this counseling is short-term, spanning several sessions over a few weeks or months. The exact number of sessions and how long it takes are decided in consultation with the counselor, considering how the individual is progressing and what they want to achieve.

Need more help deciding?

Sometimes, life throws you a curveball. Sometimes, that curve ball can feel more like a ton of bricks hitting you than anything.

Life transitions can be a really good thing! They are a sign that your life is moving forward and taking a new, exciting twist. They could also be the result of a bad thing, an accident or diagnosis you weren’t expecting, or big news that shatters your 5-year plan.

Good or bad, life transitions can be terrifying. Sometimes, the mental and emotional impact of a life transition can be too much to carry on your own. This is where Thriveworks Savannah Life Transition Coaches can step in and help carry the load until you settle into your new routine.

Why Counseling for Life Transitions?

Counseling is rarely a long-term commitment. Most people are out within a few months, maybe a year or two. Counseling for life transitions with Thriveworks Savannah is more likely to be a short-term relationship. We will always be here for you and are just a phone call away if something else crops up, but sometimes, all you need is a few months of unconditional, loving support. That’s what our counselors love to give!

There is nothing weak about wanting a counselor with you as you navigate this new life transition. Sure, maybe your next-door neighbor’s best friend’s cousin went through something similar and came out fine, but you aren’t them! You’re you and you deserve the best life possible, one that is fulfilling and full of joy. A Thriveworks Savannah counselor will work with you to get there.

And the truth is- sometimes not getting help can be detrimental. When life stressors pile on top of each other and the future is unknown, negative side affects can take root and affect you for years to come. If you are experiencing some of the following, it might be worth checking in to a professional counselor:

  • Unusually high stress levels that you feel like you can’t cope with
  • A sense of dread that follows you around
  • Anxiety
  • Changes in eating or sleeping behavior
  • Trouble focusing
  • More problems with friends and family than normal
  • Angry outbursts
  • Difficulty making and attaining goals
  • A sense of displacement, like you know there’s more out there for you
  • Unsure of what the future might hold and being unwilling or unable to take the next step.
  • Constant doubt that you’re on the right path
  • Obsessing over details
  • Unhealthy coping mechanisms like drinking or self-harm

These are of course only a few of the potential symptoms a tough life change might bring. It all comes down to the one question- are you happy with where you are in life right now? Mentally, emotionally, physically, financially, all of it! If the answer is no, a Thriveworks Savannah Life Transition Counselor can help.

What Is Life Transition Counseling?

With something as broad as life transition counseling, there’s no bullet pointed way of describing what might go on in a Thriveworks Savannah session. This is because we always guarantee to be client-centered and judgement-free.

This means our focus will always be on you- your personality, situation, and goals. Since that will be unique to every person, so will our sessions.

To be judgment free means you are welcome to bring anything to a counseling session and we will unpack and explore it without judgment in an empathetic environment designed to give you the freedom to practice new skills and unlearn bad ones.

The goal of counseling for life transitions is to simply transition you to a new stage of life with all your health and happiness still intact! When in the middle of a big change, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important, who you are, what your main goals are, and the importance of taking care of yourself. Thriveworks Savannah Life Transitions is here to be that light and guide that will walk beside you as we traverse this new terrain.

While you are welcome to bring anything into a Thriveworks Savannah counseling session, we do see a few topics more commonly than others. A few examples of what we might talk about in a life transitions session include:

  • The loss or addition of a family member
  • A major move
  • A big career shifts
  • A change in location
  • Shift in beliefs
  • The diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Recovering from a hurt relationship
  • Car crash or property wreckage

These are just a few of the topics that can be discussed with a Thriveworks Savannah counselor! Whatever you are going through, you don’t have to go through it alone. Thriveworks Savannah is here for you and we are excited to work with you through this new phase of life.
