Change, whether positive or negative, requires adjustment and that can be overwhelming. Learning to accept and cope with change is an essential life skill that builds resilience and enables us to bounce back from negative changes more quickly embrace positive changes with better energy management. For some individuals who need to have a strong sense of control in their lives, change can be particularly challenging to deal with. In our constantly changing world, the ability to adapt, reinvent and deal with unexpected new events is essential for positive mental health. Change Adjustment disorder requires stronger and more intense support for sudden or unwanted/unexpected major life change events such as having to learn to live with a disability/health issue, relationship breakdowns, loss of a job to name a few. Nicole has worked with a variety of clients across a number of major life change scenarios to help them navigate the unexpected challenges and optimise their ability to cope and thrive under such circumstances.
