The transition from childhood to adult can be a difficult stage of life. Teenagers go through a range of physical, and hormonal changes that sometimes be disruptive to everyday life. Combine this with external factors such as mental health issues, a dysfunctional family, or issues in school and the problem exacerbates. This is where teenage counselling can play an important role.

Naturally Me Counselling and Well Being specialises in counselling and psychotherapy for young people. We use proven, trusted methods to identify and resolve any problems you child may be having. Completing a course of counselling sessions will allow your child to move forward in a productive, positive manner.  

Why do teenagers need a counsellor?

Teenagers most commonly seek counseling for difficulty with family relationships, peer pressure, depression, anxiety, and school. Counsellors help young people cope with these difficulties by providing a safe place to talk, a neutral party with whom the youngster can express their feelings and concerns, and a person who can help teenagers cope with these struggles in healthy ways. 

In general, teenagers should see a counsellor if they struggle with sadness, anxiety, mood swings, drug use, or other issues that interfere with their daily lives. They may also benefit from seeing a counsellor if they struggle to interact with friends and family.

If you are worried about your teenager and need to talk to someone, we are here to provide assistance and support. Counselling might help if your teenager is struggling with:

• feeling depressed, suicidal or anxious

• bullying, exam stress or family conflict

• self-harm or substance abuse problems

• sexuality or gender identity

• eating disorders and other mental health issues

• domestic violence and abuse

How can counselling help your teen?

Counselling may help your child handle the challenges and demands of growing up and moving into adulthood. A trained therapist can help your teen develop the self-awareness and the skills they need to succeed.

Young people often struggle with emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that can feel overwhelming and confusing. Counselling can help address these issues. A counsellor will help your teenager explore and express difficult thoughts and emotions as well as helping to develop coping skills. Counselling young people builds healthy relationships, manages anxiety and stress, and finds positive ways of releasing anger and frustration. With counselling, your child will learn to manage anxiety and stress, identify and manage feelings, improve problem-solving skills, and develop effective ways to deal with peer pressure.
