Adjustment can often relate to changes in how we think, feel, or behave following a significant change. These changes can include death, medical illness, social relationships, life-stage changes or identity, to name a few, and we often need help adjusting.
Oftentimes, changes in how we feel are related to the stress-effects of our changing situation. Therefore, it is common for people to experience a period of unease, followed by a period of adjustment to their new circumstances. However, it is equally common for people to have difficulty adjusting to these changes, particularly when they are a source of ongoing stress. Adjustment, therefore, relates to the balancing of conflicting needs or challenges that surround us. Much like a newborn child adjusts to its surroundings in order to survive, so do adolescents and adults. We are constantly adjusting to new conditions which cannot themselves be changed easily.
Stress, anxiety and depression can result from difficulty adjusting to these changes and can have far-reaching effects on your health. If you are faced with some of these challenges, it may be important to talk to someone. We provide a range of treatments that can help you feel better, including: Psychoanalytic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy and others.
