There are significant hormonal, mental and physical development or changes that occur in people between the ages of around 10 to 20. These factors together with the peer pressure and academic expectations young adults face all have the capacity to affect their self-confidence and overall well-being.
Many issues can be worked through by the individual with the support of family and friends however sometimes professional expertise and assistance is required through teenage counselling.
Mind@Work Psychology has highly trained general and clinical psychologists who provide counselling for teenagers to develop healthy resilience strategies and better deal with these pressures.
We recommend that parents or guardians encourage adolescents to attend the youth counselling sessions on their own to allow more open discussion of presenting issues. Subsequent sessions may be conducted with parents or other family members where appropriate.
