Mid to Later Life

Mid to Later Life

As women enter their mid-and later-life years, new and significant issues emerge that are unique to the
female experience. Changes in physical health, cognitive processing and overall well-being are but a
few of the issues women encounter in this phase:

  • Menopause and post-menopause
  • Changing sexuality and body image
  • Caregiving of significant others such as a parent or spouse
  • “The empty nest”, when grown children leave home
  • Becoming a grandparent
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Shifts in the woman’s roles as wife, mother and caregiver

The psychological challenges specific to the mid and later years of a woman’s life have not traditionally been given
enough credence or attention.

In contrast, at IntrinPsych Woman we place special emphasis on helping you not just cope – but thrive – by integrating
all of the new roles and progressive changes with which you are confronted.
