There is no one complete list of issues that teens come across, but you can see how all these things can build up overtime, especially if you don’t feel that you can talk about you worries or thoughts openly with anyone.

Guiding your teen through a difficult period in their life can be challenging.  You may have difficulty relating to their experience or you may find it confronting that they have an issue at all, and feel it may reflect on you or your parenting style.  We support parents in understanding how they can support their teenager through a difficult time, and provide you with tools to first feel comfortable with your role in their scenario and equip you with tools and strategies to enable you to be a solid resource in difficult times and build a stronger relationship.  

Sometimes and individual’s problem is affecting the entire family, such as an addiction, depression, or behavioural problems. Working together as a whole family can be really valuable. Family therapy can be useful for addressing family-wide problems such as conflicts between siblings, spouses, or parents and children
