Life Transitions and Stress
Life transitions can be stressful as feelings of comfortability and familiarity are replaced with fear and vulnerability. We live in a world that has taught us to be very uncomfortable with uncertainty. Therefore, we become anxious when our lives are interrupted. These transitions give us an opportunity learn about our strengths and reconsider what we want out of life. Exploring ones values and belief system in a therapeutic alliance can result in a sense of renewal, stability and increased vitality.
