Times of transition are exciting and challenging. Starting something new, moving through inflection points in relationships, education and career… or looking further ahead in moving into second careers and confidently tackling retirement planning, are all important processes everyone hopes will go smoothly and naturally – but sometimes they can feel rocky. Even good changes or subtle shifts can feel unsettling, especially for highly sensitive people. Finding (or creating) a path towards “stepping up” and into the next phase can be welcome, but may also feel overwhelming and elusive. If social, academic or career issues are making it hard for you to feel confident and supported in working towards your goals, therapy can be a great tool to help in figuring out “how it all works” and getting support with developing patience and progress towards deepening clarity and commitment to your goals, values and priorities.
