TEEN / ADOLESCENT COUNSELLING AND LEARNING SUPPORT
Teen / adolescent counselling
As they grow up, children need to function in an incredibly complex world which often seems incomprehensible to their parents – leaving parents uncertain or unable to effectively guide their children through difficult situations. Teen or adolescent counselling helps to guide children and/or parents through this maze.
I provide parent guidance, coaching and support to help clients help their developing children, and help parents understand the world as their children see and experience it. I counsel developing children in understanding and meeting their emotional needs such as relating to their peers, dealing with peer pressure, handling self-esteem issues, dealing with relationship issues and handling conflict. I also help them meet their cognitive needs such as study methods and math- and exam anxiety. Therapy helps them deal with anxiety, depression, anger, negativity, relationship issues, sexual or gay issues, rejection, and thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
