Life is full of transitions that can make us feel as vulnerable as a lobster, naked between old and new shells! Of course changes are a natural part of life, but they can be overwhelming when several happen at once – job loss, menopause, empty nest, etc. – and especially if there are unresolved issues from the past that resurface. Our whole world can be shaken! Sometimes people respond by making outward, physical changes to mirror the inward changes – a new sports car! (or wife?) – but they might be wise to take some time to look at what these changes are really about. Many people report therapy during such times as being a wonderful growing experience.
