40% of Irish teens report symptoms of depression or anxiety. And the number of teenagers reporting severe anxiety in Ireland has doubled since 2012.*
Teenage years can pose challenges for many young people. Psychotherapy helps them begin to understand what is happening and how to make sense of their ever-changing thoughts, feelings and behaviours. By speaking to a therapist, in confidence and without judgement, adolescents can find the space to voice their particular difficulties and to explore ways to support themselves in a more positive way. Everything discussed in session is kept confidential, unless it is something that poses a risk to the young person or others. This confidentiality aspect of counselling is discussed in advance of starting therapy.
Young adult issues can be overwhelming
Depending on the presenting issue the therapist may use a combination of approaches to support the young person to create, for themselves, a more fulfilling life. Early intervention can help the young person to learn ways of dealing with problems before they become more deeply-rooted later in life. Some young people may find that even a relatively low number of sessions may suffice while others may need more long term support. The services we provide to support young people include:
Counselling & Psychotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy [CBT]
