Teenage, Pre Teen & Family Counselling
We are a specialised counselling and youth support service which helps young people like you, with family relationship problems. So if you have parents who are separating, separated or divorced parents, I will be able to offer you support and guidance.
Counselling can provide teenagers with strategies to deal with thoughts, behaviours and emotions in a practical way.
It can allow them to explore and change behaviours that have a negative outcome in their lives. It can help them to use their own unique qualities to find solutions to their problems and enhance their relationships .
It can help teenagers to develop a healthy sense of self and not rely on external influences to fulfil their needs.
Some of the struggles teens face are a normal part of growing up, like dealing with peer groups, experimenting with new ideas, and going through changes in mood, identity, and interests.
Parents can help their teens through some of these issues by talking to them, being patient with them, and creating an environment that is structured and supportive.
Some of these negative behaviours are:
Changes in family life, like moving, divorce, or a death or serious illness in the family
The loss of a close friend or girl or boyfriend through death, a breakup of the relationship, or moving
Developing an illness or disability
Any kind of substance abuse or addiction
Bullying or abuse
Tragic events in the community or the world
