Older Adults Counselling

Counselling older adults is a specialised form of counselling focused on the special requirements of this specific age group.

While a person goes through his or her lifespan and becomes older, changes in his or her body and mind occur as people lose their agility and sharpness. As the person grows old and enters the age of retirement, he or she is required to slow down and adjust to a different lifestyle.

People in this age group face a lot of changes within themselves and in their world. They also face a lot of losses: loss in identity, loss of spouse, loss of friends…

Counselling for older adults, therefore, offers support for issues regarding such anticipated or unanticipated changes and losses.
