Life Events

This section contains advice concerning life events. Life events are common points of major change, the turning points in our lives, and include (but are not limited to):

  • entering school
  • starting work
  • getting married
  • having children
  • becoming a pensioner
  • divorce
  • parent’s dying

Life events can be both positive and negative. Either way, they require major readjustments and therefore can be the source of uncertainty and stress.

Not all life events are experienced by all people, but each event is a common human occurrence. This means that when you are going through a life event, you can take some confidence in the fact that you are not the first and will not be the last. There is an abundance of sound advice available.

Going through a life event is usually a key time to consider asking for help or seeking counselling. Consider reading some of our advice below.
