YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH A
LIFE TRANSITION ALONE
If there’s one thing we can count on, it's change. Some changes seem more comfortable than others,
like getting a new job, changing school or moving house.
Other changes, like illness or losing someone you love, can leave you with deep feelings of grief and uncertainty.
You may have to build a new sense of self and learn how to best move on.
As scary as change can seem, it’s also an opportunity for growth.
Build Your Safe Space Counselling helps you manage life transitions and provides a space where you can learn and grow.
Life Transition Counselling can help you:
Reduce the sense of isolation and loneliness
Become mindful of your thoughts and feelings as you enter a new phase of your life
Build strength to overcome new challenges
Find inner peace and safety
Learn how to navigate relationships during times of change
Develop strategies to cope
Make daily tasks more manageable
Manage feelings of loss of control and changes in roles and responsibilities
Manage feelings of distress and develop a greater sense of calm
Improve your confidence and restore a sense of self.
WHO DO I HELP?
Life brings endless changes. Surprisingly, even the positive ones can sometimes bring up
uncomfortable emotions that you may feel you need to work through.
Some common life transitions include:
Infertility, pregnancy loss or miscarriage
Child developmental transitions, e.g. starting childcare, adolescence, illness or disability
Separation and divorce
Career change, job loss or redundancy
Illness, e.g. diagnosis, treatment or survivorship of cancer or other serious illness
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT A SESSION?
Life Transitions Counselling typically involves conversation. I listen to your experiences with compassion, empathy and respect. Sometimes you may not want to talk, and that’s fine. We can just sit and be present.
As everyone is different and has different needs, we will spend your first session talking about what is worrying you and what you would like to achieve. I believe that you are the expert on yourself, so what happens in the session is up to you.
I offer Walk & Talk Therapy and Therapy in the Park, which can be part of your Transitions Counselling too.
I believe even the scariest changes can bring about opportunities. I hope to help you make positive changes in your life.
Want to see if we’re a good fit? I offer 30-minute video chat free, so you can get a feel for my approach.
Face-to-face counselling is a type of talk-based therapy where you can share your thoughts and feelings in a safe space without judgement. Counselling sessions can be in my therapy room or we can meet at a local park.
Online Counselling is the same as talk-based therapy, only it’s conducted through video conference. We chat using Zoom using the camera and microphone. This service is suitable for people who live outside of Perth or feel uncomfortable meeting face-to-face.
