Teenagers today face a number of challenges. Typical problems range from ever-rising exam pressures to the lure of the internet. We see growing numbers of teenagers suffering from depression, stress-related conditions, low self-esteem, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, and relational difficulties.
Counselling for teenagers incorporates principles of adult therapy but is underpinned by developmental psychology. Adolescent counsellors need a specific training in order to work with teenagers, and must have undergone a CRB check.
It takes a particular skill to engage with adolescents and to guide them in overcoming their difficulties without interrupting the course of natural development. At Birmingham Psychotherapy we have specialist counselling psychologists who are trained to work with adolescents and teenagers.
