    Adolescents and Teenagers

    Managing life with pressure from school, friends, relationships and family can be overwhelming as a teen. Making things worse, there’s often a feeling of not fitting in, feeling disrespected and being misunderstood. On top of that, may be existing issues with family disputes, low self-esteem, pregnancy, mental health issues, learning difficulties or disabilities, stress, depression and anxiety.

    I assist teenagers to clarify, talk about and work through issues in areas including:

    Peer pressure

    School issues & expulsion

    Pressure from exams

    Partying & drug abuse


    Online bullying

    Body image & self-esteem

    Teenage sexuality

    Grief and loss

    Anxiety & fear

    Sadness & depression


    Suicidal thoughts

    Violence, abuse & trauma

    Family issues

    Relationship problems

    Teenage pregnancy

    I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help.

    I understand the social stigmas that come with being a teenager, and thus I aim to help clients sort out their problems while offering support and care through their teen years.
