Teen Counselling

Are you looking for a psychologist for teenagers?

Relationships between you and your child through these teen years can be volatile, exhausting and difficult to understand. As your child transitions from a young child to adulthood there are many emotions, thoughts and feelings that can arise and cause challenges.Relationships with family and peers can be affected as they experiencesignificant change. This can impact everyone involved in different ways and be a source of great difficulty and concern.

It’s important to understand that teenagers have stronger emotional responses as they develop through their adolescent years. As their young adult brains continue to develop they also undergo physical changes and their sense of identity and values begin to shift. This change can result in your child being at risk of experiencing poor mental health including anxiety and depression, risk-taking behaviour involving alcohol and substance misuse, as well as antisocial behaviour.

For this reason, it is important to seek help when you feel your child might be experiencing more than ‘teenage moodiness.’ Adolescent Counselling is the answer and will help you explore new and effective ways to communicate with each other. It will provide valuable support to your teenager, allowing them to discuss their issues in confidence and better equip them with the skills to deal with day to day issues in a more constructive way.
