Counselling for Teens

It is hard being a teenager. It feels as though no one understands you.

Some days you are moody, some days you are good. Then there are days when you just can’t get out of bed. 

There are days when going to school, sitting in class and paying attention, or interacting with others, seem like such humongous tasks.

Life can get pretty confusing!

We get it.

And we want you to know that you do not have to go through this alone.

These are just some of the struggles we’ve heard from teenagers we’ve worked with. See if you can relate to any of these:

My parents don’t understand me!”

“I don’t have any friends”

“There are way too many rules! Why can’t I do what I want?” “

I haven’t been sleeping well and I don’t feel like getting up in the mornings”

“I am constantly worried that something terrible is going to happen to me or my loved ones!”

“I feel ugly and I don’t want to go out”

“I’m eating way too much”

“My friends are making me do things I don’t want to do. I don’t want to do those things, but I don’t want to lose my friends”

“I’m angry all the time, and I don’t know why”

“My parents have very high expectations of me. I can’t take it anymore”

“I’m sad and it hurts real bad”

“I don’t feel like I am good enough for anybody”

“I have thoughts of hurting myself”

When these concerns are not given a voice and a chance to be heard, it could lead to more serious issues later on in life.


We all want to be seen, to be heard,

to be understood,

and to be accepted.
