The Gippsland Counselling Group and Teenage Counselling
People spend their childhood learning to be like their parents, and their adolescence learning who they are and how they are different from their parents.
– Dr Miriam Kaufman, 2006
Adolescence is a significant period of growth and change in any person’s life. The physical developments that teenagers undergo are accompanied by a whole range of emotional milestones, with the accompanying need to establish a sense of self – not to mention the demands of school, home and a personal life. It’s not uncommon for adolescents to act out and indulge in behaviour that could cause parents concern – and that’s where the Gippsland Counselling Group can help, with our teenage counselling services.
Teenage Counselling: what does it mean for your child?
Depending on the situation, we can either counsel your child one-on-one, or with you and your child in a safe, secure environment. Sometimes teenagers just need to get things off their chests to an impartial party, without the presence of parents around, and develop healthy boundaries; other times, family therapy may be necessary. In either case, we are willing and able to help mend fences through teenage counselling and build stronger family bonds. Talk to us today about how we can best help your teenager within your family situation.
