& ELDERLY THERAPY
Life transitions are difficult as they force us to confront the future with uncertainty and vulnerability. Life is full of major transitions such as finishing school, changing careers, getting married, becoming parents, moving, looking after ageing parents, and coping with loss. Often change is accompanied by overwhelming stress and anxiety about how to manage and move forward. Therapy will assist you in learning strategies and techniques to effectively cope with presenting life transitions and help you regain a sense of control in your life, alleviate stress and make life more fulfilling.
Late-life is commonly a time for major life transitions and adjustment to losses. Older adults are faced with life challenges that are specific to their age groups such as retirement, relocation, reduced income, altered social role and entitlements, bereavement, and changes in physical and emotional health. The effects of these life transitions can leave a person feeling isolated, worthless, deprived, depressed, suicidal, and dependent on others for their care. Here at Anchoridge Counselling, we offer specialized psychotherapy for seniors in a caring and supportive environment to help relieve stress and frustrations as well as enhance wellbeing. In an effort to maximize care we incorporate the families and supports of ageing adults to create long-lasting results.
