Counselling for teens



Adolescents are learning how to manage their rapidly changing minds, bodies and emotions while navigating their way through the formative years of their identities.  One of the most important first steps parents can do to  help their teen is to listen to them and take their feelings seriously. 

Unfortunately, many teens are struggling with their mental health and well-being, and regardless of how much their parents or loved ones try to help them feel better, they may need some extra support if they are experiencing:

  • low self-esteem/lack of confidence
  • self-doubt/concerns about self-image
  • difficulty managing stress (sometimes leading to substance abuse)
  • difficulty with relationships (parents, siblings, friends)
  • inability to handle conflict
  • school avoidance
  • overwhelming or excessive worrying 
  • feelings of hopelessness or depression
  • changes in their family (such as divorce)
  • social anxiety
