ADOLESCENT COUNSELLING

A common frustration parents often report is a reluctance for their teens to engage with support. We try and make this as manageable as possible by facilitating both in-clinic and online sessions (teletherapy). Clinic sessions involve an approach that is comfortable and age appropriate for adolescents. For example the therapist may utilise talking therapy, art therapy or sand tray therapy. For those teens who aren’t ready for face-to-face therapy, or who are unable to leave the home, we offer teletherapy. This involves either video, phone or online chat sessions.

Adolescent therapy can help teens with:

  • Identity issues

  • Difficulties managing anxiety and/or anger

  • Challenging and/or risk taking behaviours

  • Friendship issues and/or bullying

  • Depression and other mood disorders

  • Family breakdown and conflict

  • Parent and adolescent relationship challenges

  • Grief and loss

  • Learning difficulties

  • Exam and study stress

  • School challenges

  • Self-harming thoughts or actions

  • Self-esteem and confidence issues
