Teenagers and young adult support

Being a teenager or young adult is a challenging life stage. The young persons’ brain goes through a rewiring stage preparing them for adulthood. The part of the brain responsible for judgement and the ability to control moods, impulses and emotions is the last to fully develop. Coupled with hormonal changes and other stresses, such as anxiety caused by exam pressure, developing sexuality, social media and the need to ‘fit in’, possible bullying including cyber-bullying can make this a challenging time.

Counselling gives teenagers and young adults the chance to talk to someone who is separate from the family, non-judgemental and can help them make sense of their thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

At The Eaves, we have experienced therapists who are specially trained to work with teenagers and young adults and can also help with specific issues such as self-harm, low self-esteem, panic attacks or eating disorders. As with all counselling at The Eaves, sessions with adolescents are confidential in order to build a trusting relationship between the client and the therapist.

Are you, or do you know, a young person who would benefit from talking to someone?
