Life is always changing with time. In these changes some are exciting, some are less exciting and some are just devastating. All the changes have the ability to affect our lives, they can feel stressed. A transition means a change and change means that something is going to end and something is going to start. When something is ending, it brings grief.
Some major life transitions include:
- Career changes
- Moving from one place to another
- Loss of someone special
- Health problems
- Addition of a child
Why Life Transitions are Challenging
Sometimes even exciting transitions are challenging, and here are some reasons:
Everything from situations to events changes with time. When we say that this is a “good change”, it doesn’t mean that we can easily cope with that change. For example, when we are moving to a city or town. This is an exciting change for us to look forward but we need to learn so many things for adjusting to a new place. Learning new routines and new places needs more energy and effort.
In response to life transition, people experience different types of stress that hurt emotional, physical and mental health. Also, life transition stress can make a person less motivated and affect their ability to achieve their goals.
Some transitions happen unexpectedly and they can disturb our daily routine. It’s very difficult to cope with these types of transitions, for example, job loss, accidents, and the sudden death of a loved one are the transitions that don’t give us chance to prepare. And they have a very bad impact on our lives and goals.
When Do You Need To Get Help for Life Transitions?
When you are feeling anxious, depressed and exhausted; when something is affecting your relationships and you can’t cope with these changes – it’s the time to seek help. Sometimes you just need support, and sometimes you just want help to cope.
The Role of an Online Counsellor in Coping With Life Transitions and Goal Achievement
Various techniques and approaches can help a client suffering from life challenges, online. Counsellors help to tell you about the techniques that can be effective in coping with transitions and achieving goals, which are the following:
- Accept the changes
- Stay positive and avoid negativity
- Express your feelings
- Thoughts should be reframed
- Manage stress
- Expectations must be realistic
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Engagement in social activities
- Join support groups
- Appreciate the change
- Set goals and try hard to achieve them
- Think about the opportunities
- Don’t hesitate to get support
Therapeutic Approaches for Life Transitions
There are a few treatments available for anxiety, depression, and other disorders that counsellors could give you in online sessions. Which includes:
The principle of mindfulness is to focus on the present moment and experience it fully – when you start shifting your focus from negativity to the goals that are most important for you. This therapy helps to focus on emotions, behaviours, thoughts and beliefs.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
This therapy encourages one to accept the misfortunes of life, try to stay in the present and focus on the goals of life.
Grief Work Therapy
This method is used in counselling that helps people to understand the loss in their life and try to take it healthily. And also helps to focus on the goals and try to achieve them.
This is the most traditional therapy with the belief that people have the potential to understand their feelings, beliefs and goals and they also have the potential to fight with their life experiences on their own when guided properly.
All treatment methods are dependent on personal needs and individual counsellors or therapists, who will determine the best method of treatment for his/her clients.
