You may have heard of, or even be currently experiencing the symptoms of Empty Nest Syndrome; sadness, grief, empty feelings, similar to mild depression.
All of these feelings are common to parents and caregivers, even more so at this time of year, when children leave home to go to university or get married. Women are often more aware of these feelings as they may be going through other significant life events, such as menopause or caring for elderly parents. Men also can experience similar feelings of what seems like loss, on the departure of their children. The family dynamics have changed for ever and it can be difficult to adjust to relationships, especially those with partners. Effects can be felt in other areas of your life such as work and social life.
You don’t need to wait until these issues become unmanageable or you reach crisis point.
Where better to review and explore the challenges that come with this transition stage in your life, than in the unique relationship of one-to-one counselling or psychotherapy?
At last you will have more time to understand what it is that may have triggered these powerful feelings in you. Explore in a confidential space, your relationships with others and what it is that you want out of life and how to free up some of the restrictions that sometimes come with being a full-time parent.
Empty Nest Syndrome is a great opportunity! So what are you waiting for? Book a session now, for what is probably the best investment you will ever make in YOU!
