“Little children, headache; big children, heartache.”
Italian Proverb

Teenager: n. person in teens, one’s age from 13 to 19.

It’s easy to laugh and say “Teenagers! Nobody understands their teenage sons and daughters,” but you can and you should. Your child’s teenage years are formative ones that will affect the person they will become as an adult.

Teenagers are subject to many influences and new experiences and these are often troubling and confusing. Statistics show that girls who fail to distinguish between feelings of anxiety and hunger are at risk for eating disorders whilst boys who fail to control their impulsivity have a heightened risk of delinquency and violence.

Robyn holds teenager therapy sessions where parents learn how to teach their children emotional skills of resilience and teens learn self-acceptance and acquire the mental tools that will keep themselves from harm.

Does your child, adolescent or teenager need help with any emotional, behavioural or social challenges? Teenager counselling, teenage therapy and adolescent counselling training, courses and practice helps your child to understand, manage and overcome many different personal challenges.

Robyn is a family and teenage counselling therapist who has extensive experience working with children and teenagers, managing challenging behaviour.  She will also help develop skills to make your child feel happy, secure and confident within themselves. Robyn adolescent therapist is a based in Melbourne and helps both individuals as well as constellations of families become more functional.

Family therapy recognises that teenagers are part of the greater family system, and so therapy in isolation for teenagers is often unproductive.  Counselling and adolescent courses work best in a group setting where members are encouraged to heal each other.  Many counselling services, ignore this and so not much permanent change occurs.

Adolescents are young people with extra challenges in their lives as their bodies are going through physical changes, and the hormonal changes lead to increased challenges.  Counselling is most effective when all the factors are taken into account, which is what happens in my therapeutic rooms.  Although most of the counselling happens in Melbourne, some people prefer using skype for counselling which works just as well.
