There are many kinds of transitional issues in an adult's life. This is because life itself is change. Some transitions are good for the soul and human growth while some transitions are unhealthy. Transitional issues revolve around the abilities to love, work and play. I mean complex and confusing issues that don't and won't go away because you 'talk' it out with a friend or relative. Further, adults with awareness can identify the issues such as being 'burned out', getting divorced, forced to change jobs or being discriminated against because you are different. Don't waste the center of your fragile but beautiful humanity trying to change circumstances and people. Don't become like the average person who takes problems and issues from home, to the community, to the workplace then back home. A vicious life cycle. Seeking professional assistance with a therapist is not a sign of weakness but a sign of sensibility and great courage. The 'problem' usually originates with costs and time.
How a therapist can help:
A well trained psychologist will view the patient as ' boss' and assist with exploring the issue (s) more fully to understand the underlying meaning of the problem or issue. The therapist will assist in helping to develop a personal comprehensive plan to cope more effectively with reality, change and loss to resolve the 'problem'. A Therapist will listen in a way that facilitates exploration of the problem to assist with discovery and utilizing your personal creativity to develop effective coping strategies. Group therapy is a cost-effective means of receiving high quality, evidence based, short term therapy.
