Handling Teenage ISSUES

Get "Ready for Life".

*In-person support available.

Teenage struggles are tough, but temporary. Safe spaces exist, so reach out and breathe!


Being a teenager is tough. You're figuring out who you are, facing pressure at school and at home, and emotions can feel all over the place. If you're struggling with anger, frustration, or feeling out of control, there's help available

Teenagers face a unique set of challenges, from academic pressure to social anxieties. Our counsellors can be a guiding light, offering a safe space to talk through problems and develop healthy coping mechanisms. They can help teens understand their emotions, build communication skills, and navigate difficult situations at home, school, or with friends. This process empowers teenagers to manage stress, build confidence, and reach their full potential.

Our counsellors can equip teens with the tools to navigate the ups and downs of adolescence, develop healthier coping mechanisms, improve communication skills, and gain a better understanding of their emotions. This can lead to stronger relationships, increased self-control, and a more positive outlook on life.

Typical Issues that affect Teenagers

Feeling down or moody is normal for teens, but depression goes deeper. It can zap your energy, make it hard to enjoy things, and even lead to thoughts of suicide. If sadness lingers for weeks and interferes with school or friendships, a teen counsellor can help.
Competition and Peer pressure
Teen years are a balancing act between defining one's own path and fitting in with friends. Competition, both academic and social, can drive teens to excel but also lead to anxiety. Peer pressure can be a positive force, but it can also push teens to make risky choices or feel like they don't measure up.
Body Image
Between growth spurts and social media's highlight reel, it's no surprise teens can struggle with body image. Comparing themselves to unrealistic ideals can lead to feeling insecure and withdrawn. Teenage counselling can help teens develop a healthier body image, focusing on what their bodies can do rather than just how they look.
Teenagers are at a particularly vulnerable stage for bullying. Bullying, whether physical, verbal, or online, can chip away at a teen's self-esteem, leaving them feeling isolated, anxious, and depressed. In severe cases, it can even lead to thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
Substance Abuse
Teenagers experiment with substances for a complex mix of reasons. It can be a desperate attempt to cope with stress, anxiety, or depression, a search for excitement, belonging with a certain group, or simply youthful curiosity. The problem is, their developing brains are fragile leading to a vicious cycle, impacting everything from academic performance and relationships to physical and mental health.
Social Media Pressure
Feeling like you need to constantly compete with perfectly curated online lives? Social media can be a major source of pressure for teens. The endless highlight reels and unrealistic expectations can lead to anxiety, low self-esteem, and FOMO (fear of missing out).
