The years during the second half of life are a time of significant change and transitions.

You are being challenged to let go of your old identity and ways of being. Your task is to lay the groundwork for a new sense of self. There can be anxiety in letting go of previous patterns, living with uncertainty and trying to find new directions that are satisfying and rewarding for you. No one has given you a map or a compass to help you navigate this stage in life.

Many people feel overwhelmed by the number of issues they are dealing with and struggle to maintain some balance and cope with the weight of the concerns they face.  As well as having many responsibilities, you may find you are also dealing with the aging process and don’t have the energy and resilience to cope, that you had in the past. This factor can make your burdens seem heavier.

However, regardless of any of the above problems you may be experiencing, through counselling, you can make the second half of life work well for you.

You can discover new hope and fresh possibilities at this time, that were not available before. You can find that both deeper meaning and greater wisdom come into your awareness, as well as being able to utilize your own unique gifts and strengths in your life. As you turn your focus more inward during these years, you can discover new directions and choices and a renewed sense of purpose to live for. This is all possible and available to you. You can find a new place in life that feels fulfilling to you.

As your counsellor, I can help you discover how to make the second half of life work best for you. I will help you navigate through your journey to a deeper sense of fulfillment and purpose.
