Adolescent Therapy

Adolescence is a developmental phase and a period of change that is of critical importance. How this period of upheaval is navigated can have implications for the rest of an individual`s life.

By working with an experienced adolescent therapist, the young person can describe and explore problematic areas such as conflict within the family, behavioral difficulties, stress or anxiety, feeling suicidal, sexual feelings, social skills and relating to other people. Adolescent counseling aims to engage with the problems described, and through increased awareness of thoughts and feelings, to develop communication skills and improve self-esteem.

Individual counseling or psychotherapy with adolescents can be combined with some meetings with the parent(s) or guardian(s), and/or family therapy sessions, depending on the circumstances.
