Therapy for Older Adults
As we age, there is a wealth of opportunities for growth and change that we welcome. Perhaps it is the enjoyed free time in retirement, welcoming grandchildren into our families, or pursuing hobbies and interests that we didn’t have time for in our younger years. But as with any life transition, it can come with changes that are difficult to navigate. Many common concerns voiced by older adults include anxiety, depression, isolation, financial difficulties, relationship problems, loss of identity, change in daily structure and routines, health problems, and grief and loss due to the death of a loved one. Fortunately, for most clients, learning how to manage this life transition, and thrive in the retirement years, is possible. “Aging well” is a term that is often used in beauty ads referring to outer beauty, but I use the term to mean helping my clients identify their unique inner strengths and look for the moments and opportunities to embrace in this stage of life. I will offer counselling that is specific to the challenges you are experiencing to help you move forward with skills and knowledge to apply in your life long after you have completed therapy.
