In todays world, it's tough to be a teenager. With adolescence come changes, and with them come -- many challenges.
Does Teen Counseling Really Help?
It's not unusual for teens to feel a range of emotions: from anger, anxiousness or depression, to disconnection or confusion. More than ever, this is a time for them to feel connected as they learn and grow as individuals into adulthood.
For the struggling teen, one-on-one counseling with a therapist is not only beneficial, but it can become the catalyst that helps them to overcome obstacles, develop healthy interpersonal skills, and form lasting relationships.
Every teen responds differently to life changes. Some of the events that can impact their mental health include:
Birth of a new brother or sister
Death of a loved one
Moving to a new place--leaving friends behind while struggling to make new ones
Physical or sexual abuse
Divorce or separation of parents
There are many examples of situations that can affect a teenager's mental health. The most important thing as a parent is to recognize when there is a problem, and to seek help from a trained therapist.
So, does it really help? Most definitely. The therapeutic process can be extremely beneficial to a teen who may be going though a rough patch in their life -- needs to find a sense of hope, or is seeking a sense of purpose or direction in their life.
