As they mature, teenagers develop their social and emotional intelligence, often leading to resulting in long, fulfilling lives. However, some youngsters exhibit emotions or behave in ways that compromise their wellbeing. Counselling can provide teenagers with a secure setting to process their feelings.
“A child seldom needs a good talking to as much as a good listening to.” – Robert Brault.
Every stage of a child's development has unique difficulties. They frequently overcome these difficulties as a normal part of growing. These challenges may be made more difficult by mental health issues. They could be the result of experiences a child has. These could have included traumatic experiences like bullying. They may also be common experiences, such as moving home.
Every adolescent reacts to changes in the world differently.
As children get older, relationships can become a source of conflict. Some teenagers worry excessively about relationships, which causes stress. This stress may be caused by platonic and romantic relationships. This may lead to mental health issues or a lower quality of life. Within the home, during adolescent years, relationships between family members can become strained as they navigate their way towards adulthood. Counselling can support teenagers to explore their feelings towards others and examine how to react to other people in their lives.
At KTS we have a combined 30 year experience working with adolescents, supporting them to understand motivation, emotions, behaviours and relationships. We work collaborativley with these young adults to navigate these challening times in their developement to support them to understand themselves and other better.
