Unemployment over 50 becomes even more essential as we find ourselves out of work later in life. It’s about believing in one’s capacity to learn, adapt, and thrive in new environments. With RTT therapy, which can address limiting beliefs and boost confidence, individuals over 50 can build the resilience to embrace change and seek fulfilling roles.
