Therapy For Teenagers



From mood swings to school issues, all teens have problems. But sometimes, a teen's distress might rise to a level where it's important to seek professional help. Teens can benefit from meeting with a therapist to talk to about a variety of topics, ranging from relationship issues to questions about sexual identity.

Attending counselling sessions can help improve teen's self-confidence, overall mood, and self-esteem. Through therapy, teens learn and strengthen vital skills such as emotion regulation, effective communication, empathy, assertiveness, and self-awareness. Therapy helps teens understand the root cause of their feelings, thoughts, and behaviours, and gives adolescents the tools to make beneficial changes to help them feel and function better. Counselling helps teens work through issues and empowers them to use what they learn to find solutions to the issues they face.

About teenage emotions

Moods, or emotional ups and downs, are a normal part of life for young people, just as they are for adults.

It’s normal for teenagers to feel cheerful and excited some days, and down, flat, low or sad at other times. It’s also normal for teenagers to want more privacy or time on their own. In the teenage years, these emotional ups and downs can happen more often than they used to, and they can be more extreme.

Teens have emotional ups and downs that might happen for many reasons – physical, emotional, social and psychological – and not for any one reason in particular. Often you won’t be able to pin down why your teen feels up or down – and neither will they.

If you’re concerned about your child’s emotions and behaviour, it’s important to talk with your child and to seek help from a mental health professional.
