From teen behaviour problems to teen depression, bullying, and other school issues, counselling can provide comfort for your teen whether their needs are mild or severe. Teen counselling can be necessary for many reasons at different times in your child’s life.  We understand how distressing it is to feel like you’re the only parent struggling with child behavioural problems, or other reasons for counselling for teenagers. A teen and youth therapist may be the best option for your family, in order to identify the counselling needs of your teenager. Family-Therapy provides many options to work with your family’s needs and provide counselling that works best for your teen.

These can shape your teenager’s life, so if they are handling any experiences or challenges in an unhealthy way, it is important to address these issues immediately.  Counselling for teenagers is done independently of parental involvement. This helps your teen develop a close attachment with our youth counsellors. Parents will be contacted if the teen is self-harming, as the well-being of you and your loved ones is our utmost concern.
