Adolescents

TEEN PSYCHOLOGIST

Being a teenager is a stage of life with constant change. Your body, your feelings, and how you think can all start doing new and sometimes confusing things. It’s awesome, but it can also make you feel unsure, a bit lost, and sometimes extremely emotional.

You might really want to fit in with friends and satisfy family needs, but also want to be your own person: this can be tricky to balance. It might make you feel alone, stressed out, or worried. For some people, these feelings can become intense and might lead to tougher problems like feeling low (depression), worried (anxiety), having a hard time with eating, using substances, or not feeling good about who they are. Talking to a therapist is a safe place where you can say anything you’re thinking or feeling without being judged. It’s a place to learn how to deal with tough emotions, get better at talking about what you need or want, and to become stronger inside. We can take it at your pace too, there is no rush!

My approach:

I work with teenagers, helping them understand and manage their feelings through Emotional Focused Therapy and emotional management.

My goal is to make them feel safe and supported, so they can learn how to handle their emotions better. This helps them feel more confident in themselves and their abilities. We focus on building their self-esteem by teaching them skills to deal with life’s challenges. By learning to manage their emotions, they become stronger and more prepared for the future. It’s all about giving them the tools they need to grow and succeed.
