Have you experienced a serious illness, loss of a job, or the ending of a relationship?

In addition to the above life changes or adjustments, do any of the following apply to you:

  • adult children leaving home (“empty nest” feeling)?
  • retirement?
  • caring for elderly parents, a sick partner or child?
  • getting married or having a baby?
  • changing jobs?
  • moving house or relocating?
  • a major injury
  • death of a loved one?
  • divorce?
  • challenges related to ageing?

Have any of these life transitions/adjustments left you feeling:

  • shocked?
  • depressed?
  • angry?
  • stressed?
  • anxious or fearful?
  • overwhelmed?

Psychological Treatment for Life Transitions and Adjustments

As a Clinical Psychologist with substantial experience in this area, I can help you to navigate your way through these life transitions and changes.

I provide Psychological Therapy (a talking therapy also referred to as psychotherapy) in a safe, supportive and caring environment, utilising a range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions tailored to suit your specific needs.  I use an integrative approach and draw on therapy models such as Cognitive-Behavioural, Narrative, Humanistic, Person-Centered, Psychodynamic, Emotion Focussed, Interpersonal, and Mindfulness (amongst others).
