Adjustment to Change – Lauren Burrow

Lauren Burrow       Quals: B. Psychological Science (Hons); Grad. Cert. Health Promotion

Adjustment to Change: Even with the best-laid plans, life can throw a curve ball at us: whether it be the break-down of what we had thought was a strong relationship (whether with a partner, friend or member of the family), loss of employment due to unexpected redundancy or injury, through to health problems that have led to a reduction in our quality of life. These situations can leave even the seemingly strong people amongst us struggling to keep up with the changes, manage the new stressors, and adapt to the new circumstances. Seeking help and support from a Psychologist at this time is one way of taking some control over these circumstances, and it is definitely okay to admit that you would like some extra help during difficult periods of your life.

Counselling Approach: When struggling with unexpected and unwanted changes, it can be hard to see the good that is still around us; Lauren approaches sessions with clients having difficulty adjusting to changes in their life by helping them see things from a different perspective, to see what is actually still going well, to identify their strengths rather than continuing to focus on what is wrong. Lauren uses evidence-based therapeutic techniques based in Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Positive Psychology to help clients not just come to terms with their changed circumstances, but to find ways to thrive in them.
