Adolescent Counselling

Adolescent and Teen Counselling in Fremantle, Perth and Surroundings

Experienced Psychologists helping adolescents and teens, based in Applecross!

Adolescence can be a difficult time for both the teenager and their parents to navigate. The combination of school stress, friendship drama, hormones and big emotions can feel extremely overwhelming. Adolescent and teenage counseling can provide a safe space outside of your teens immediate family and friend circles to be listened to non- judgmentally and explore their current difficulties.

Sessions are driven primarily by the teen, however the psychologist can provide some direction if the teen is unsure about what to discuss. Goals for therapy will be explored in the initial sessions, and will be focussed on throughout the sessions. We hope to achieve as many/ all of the goals identified by the end of therapy. In achieving these goals, teens are required to be active participants in session, as well completing homework (e.g. practicing skills, noticing emotions and thoughts) outside of session. This commitment will ensure your teen gets the most out of therapy and move towards feeling more mentally healthy.

How can we help?

Therapy can help your teen build comfort in speaking about their current stressors, emotions and concerns. It can help them develop a better understanding of their emotions, thoughts and behaviours. In doing this, teens can learn how to identify their emotions and how to regulate these emotions so they don’t feel as overwhelming as they once did.

  • Therapy with your teen can be aimed at multiple stressors such as:
  • Study/ work stress
  • Friendship difficulty
  • Family conflict
  • Self- esteem/ self- worth difficulties
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

In order to gain a better understanding of your teens current difficulties, we will either organise a dedicated ‘parent session’ or invite the parent(s) into the first session for the first 15-20 minutes. We will ask questions to understand your teens developmental history, mental health history in the family and your perception of your teens current difficulties. Following this initial interaction with the parents, the remaining sessions will mainly be between the teen and their psychologist, however we will engage with parents when necessary.
