Adolescent and Teen Counselling servicing Perth and Fremantle
The teen brain is still under construction. Many parents often complain that their teenagers occasionally behave in an impulsive, irrational, or hazardous way. They differ from adults in the way they behave, rationalise and solve problems, and make decisions. At times, it seems like they don’t think things through or fully consider the consequences of their actions. During the teenage years, crucial mental, social, and emotional developments occur which lay down the groundwork for healthy behaviour patterns in life as an adult.
Laying the foundations for a healthy adulthood with our experienced counsellors
We usually associate adolescence with normal teen behaviour such as irritability, opposition, moodiness and withdrawal, and changes in social behaviour. Though these are common markers of going through adolescence, they can also be signs of a more serious mental health disorder.
We work with adolescents who come from loving families, eager to help them become capable adults. It is our aim to help them learn new skills to navigate their current life stage, even as we prepare them for the next stage.

Qualified professionals with a holistic approach to adolescent psychology
We typically meet with the parents first to hear all about their adolescent’s strengths and struggles. Then, as we meet with your teen, we measure their self-concept, anxiety, depression, anger, resiliency, and reactivity as we hear from them what is working in their life and what is not. We can also conduct sessions with the whole family for a wider perspective.
