Adolescence is one of the most challenging and confusing periods of our development. It is a transitional stage of physical, emotional and cognitive human development that occurs between puberty and adulthood. This is the reason why adolescence can be a difficult time but also an important stage in the development of personality.
These changes can sometimes be experienced as a struggle as the adolescent needs to adjust to a stage where they assume more responsibilities and negotiate new boundaries and expectations.
Therapy and counselling may help adolescents in:
• receiving emotional support
• understanding feelings and needs
• finding new ways to deal with problems
• managing anxiety
• improving relationships with friends and family
• changing behaviour
• managing anger
The length of therapy depends on the issues presented and their complexity.
