Stressful life transition?

Let us help you find your way through

A recent study finds that stressful and traumatic life events are the biggest cause of anxiety.

We all want to feel safe and secure, but as we get older, we realize that we cannot always count on things being the same. Unexpected incidents can turn our world upside down and cause us to feel extreme stress. Most of these incidents we cannot control only furthering our sense of despair.

Some of the most common stressful life transitions include:

  • Death of a loved one
  • Divorce
  • Birth of a child
  • Job stress or loss
  • Major illness
  • Unexpected financial hardship

In some cases, “happy” events such as the birth of a child, marriage, or even a new job can lead to stress. Because these are joyous occasions, we don’t expect to feel so much anxiety and then feel guilty or confused about our reactions.

Sometimes there are events from our past that get triggered at times of transition. If you were abused or mistreated as a child or did not have a strong bond with a loving caregiver, these painful wounds can get activated when things around us seem uncertain or scary in the present. These powerful feelings can make times of change much more difficult to manage.

Fortunately, there are skilled and trained professionals who can provide valuable insights and tools to manage and better understand how to stabilize your life and gain greater insight and wisdom into yourself.

At Charleston Counseling Center we accept many forms of insurance and offer evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.  Contact us to make an appointment.
