Over 65’s Counselling

Entering your senior years is an exciting time of life as you embark upon retirement with the freedom to pursue your goals and discover new hobbies. It’s a time for letting go of your working life, enjoying time with family and friends and celebrating the life you have lived thus far. Unfortunately, as time passes, it can also be a time when the reality of declining health and loneliness can have a significant impact upon your lifestyle choices and the way you feel about yourself.

Reaching out to a counsellor can help you to manage the anxieties, fears and self-doubt which may be associated with ageing. I understand reaching out can be a daunting step, as talking to someone about your fears for the future, troubles and emotions may not come easily to you. Please rest assured, I care about what you are going through, I will listen to you with compassion, take the time to understand your difficulties and help you feel at ease to discuss whatever you want to. My aim is to help you understand and accept the changes in your life, connect you with services which can be of assistance and to help you find peace of mind as you progress through the senior years.

Talking with a counsellor not only provides you with the opportunity to discuss your worries and emotions, it also gives you the opportunity to talk about your life, sharing your experiences and recognising your achievements. It can also help you to explore unresolved issues such as grief for the loss of your partner, making peace with past events, talking about things you haven’t previously spoken about or finding ways to re-connect with family and friends. Whatever it is you may want to discuss, I am here to listen to you.

Over 65’s Counselling can help with the following;

  • Coping with lifestyle changes
  • Accepting the loss of a partner
  • Managing loneliness
  • Understanding depression and learning coping strategies
