Applecross Community Psychologists

Adolescent and Teenage Counselling in Perth, Fremantle

Experienced Psychologists helping adolescents and teens from Applecross!

We work with adolescents who come from loving families all across Fremantle and Perth (sounds better), eager to help them become capable adults. It is our aim to help them learn new skills through counselling to navigate their current life stage, even as we prepare them for the next stage.

The teen brain is still under construction. Many Perth 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.

Teenage Counselling with Perth Counsellors for a Healthy Adulthood

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.

Qualified professionals in Fremantle 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 help them with their self-concept, anxietydepressionanger, resiliency, and reactivity as we hear from them what is working in their life and relationships, and what is not. We can also conduct counselling sessions with the whole family for a wider perspective and can cater to families with young children.
