ADOLESCENCE

Being a teenager can be an exciting but also challenging time.

Young people can become unhappy, feel they are not good enough, don’t fit in are wrong and different but don’t know how or why. The certainties of being a child are replaced by a time of change that can be unsettling causing anxiety and a loss of confidence.

Counselling for Teenagers

I am qualified to work with young people aged 11-18 years old. If you are 16 and older, you can contact me to arrange an appointment. If you are under 16, speak to a parent or guardian first before getting in touch.

You may be a parent or guardian looking for support for your child who is facing emotional difficulties or who has a mental health condition. I will work closely with you to set up counselling and meet you at the first consultation if that is what we think would be appropriate and helpful. After the first consultation, I feel it must be the young person who makes the decision whether to continue with therapy or not. People under 16 who have “sufficient understanding and intelligence to enable them to understand fully what is involved in a proposed intervention” are deemed in law to have the competence to consent, as well as the right to confidentiality. I will respect this right when working with young people.
