What is transition ?
« A change is a move, a new work, the birth of a child, the death of a father, the arrival of a new boss, or a merger in the company we work in. In short, change is situational/the event, while transition is the inner re-orientation and self-redefinition that we go through. A change works out only if it is integrated by the individual through transition. But our society mentions changes a lot, but rarely transition. Which is unfortunate, because most of our problems can be explained by a failed transition ».

« Transitions, making sense of life’s changes »
You feel a bit thrown off balance ? Whether the situation you live is happy or more difficult, it is a major change ? You want to move, to go forward, to evolve personally or professionally ? Your points of reference are somewhat turned upside down ?
It is essential for you to find how to better live this situation while respecting yourself, listening to yourself and go towards the life you long for. You will develop your talents and competences at the same time.
It is easier to be helped along the way to better use the resources you have within yourself. I know this path. I took it many times, in different ways.
During a transition, whether it is a personal, professional or cultural one, many aspects can be considered. Some of which are :
- Better balance your personal and professional life
- Deal with your emotions and/or your stress
- Better communicate
- Solve problems
- Make choices …
- Increase your self confidence
- Be more assertive, know and respect your limits, be able to say NO
- Deal with grief (loss or change of a job, loss of a dear one, relationship breakup …) and go ahead
- Get rid of a phobia : social phobia, claustrophobia, agoraphobia, plane, insects, spiders …
- Stop smoking …
