When can teen therapy help
Lots of teens experience difficult feelings and dilemmas during adolescence. Our clinical psychologists are specifically trained in understanding and treating common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, which includes social anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), phobias and trauma.
What we can help teens with
If you’re worried your teenager is struggling with mental health issues, we can help. Common issues our therapists help with include depression, self-harm, low self esteem, social anxiety, generalised anxiety and phobias. Additionally, many teens struggle with perfectionism, poor sleep, low confidence and/or eating aversions and disorders.
When we work with teenagers and adolescents, we will always strive to match the evidence base to the individual. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is often a good starting point, but this can be modified and adapted to include ideas from systemic (family therapy), Inter-Personal Therapy (IPT), Compassion-Focused Therapy and Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
What to expect
Good therapy is about meeting a teenager where they are at. This includes responding to their communication, cognitive ability and developmental level in a way that suits their age.
Our psychologists are trained to understand and respond to children and adolescents at different stages of development and will always adjust their approach accordingly.
Our therapists are experienced in working with teens, in particular Clinical Psychologist Jonathan Tyson, Art Therapist Georgie Biggs, and Child Psychologist Nethali Sabbah.
