Relationship tips for times of change
The nature of your relationships, whether with your parents, children, or partner, can shift throughout your life and depending on your circumstances.
Key transitions such as becoming a parent for the first time, starting or leaving a relationship, or preparing for retirement, might leave you feeling uncertain about where you stand and how to communicate your feelings and needs.
For some people, change can be very scary and unsettling, or associated with grief and loss. Other people may find change exciting, and may even look forward to it. People who have experienced difficult life changes in their past can find that this affects how they deal with future changes. It’s important to seek help early, so that when change comes up again, you’re best prepared to deal with it.
