The Baby Boomer generation is the first generation to reach the age of sixty and feel confident that they still have plenty of good years ahead. However, the pandemic has been a strong reminder of the vulnerability of ageing, with older people much more likely to suffer severe symptoms. On top of this, there is a view that it has brought ageism out into the open, as older people were blamed for lockdowns and all that goes with them. It’s an interesting time to be getting older.

As we age and retirement looms it’s all too easy to feel that our world is shrinking. We may feel trapped and anxious and experience overwhelming feelings of loss. However, with self-awareness we can choose a different way—we can embark on a journey of becoming who we really are. We can gather our knowledge and experience, and explore how we can use it to enrich our later years and be of service to others. By resolving our past and finding contentment in our present, we can learn to face each ageing milestone as an opportunity for deeper self-knowledge and personal growth.

This series of workshops will provide tools to use with clients, while enabling the counsellor to work with their own ageing process.
