There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
― Sophia Loren
Aging is a natural process that may present challenges for some individuals and their families. Although many older adults look forward to the freedom of retierment, it may be difficult for others to adjust to the changes with aging.
Some people may experience health issues, losses, identity changes, relationship and financial stress as they pass middle age, and the support of a therapist or other mental health professional may help ease the transition.

ACCELERATED RESOLUTION THERAPY
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a non-talk, brain-based therapy that uses eye-movements to assist clients in effectively processing problematic physical sensations, thoughts, and emotions relating to a specific event or concern. Clients are fully conscious during the sessions and are guided through the processing by the clinician. The advantages to ART is that it is relatively quick (1-5 sessions depending on the situation) and clients do not need to discuss their thoughts, feelings, or memories unless they choose to.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
