Adolescent counselling is a specific area of therapy and psychoanalysis that is offered by experienced professional counsellors. Research shows that teenagers and young people experience a high degree of anxiety, depression and stress and even more so than in the past. Mental health problems are even more prevalent in girls than boys, although the male of the species can still suffer a great deal.
Whilst schools and universities usually offer adolescent counselling in some form, teenagers do not always feel comfortable about approaching staff at their place of education as they prefer to keep their feelings and problems separate. Many can suffer from panic attacks, phobias and eating disorders which is why seeing an adolescent counsellor outside of your school, college or university can be a great help. They can see you when you are not with our friends or colleagues and appointments can be put in place at a time to suit you so that your studied will not be interfered with.
If tests, exams and family or personal issues are making you feel unwell, depressed and emotionally overwrought, then your anxieties can be minimised and treated by a professional adolescent counsellor. Adolescent counselling can take the form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or any other type of therapy that will help with your specific issues. If required, your therapist will put in place a tailored approach to adolescent therapy that will help you to deal with upsetting thoughts and behaviours.
