Adolescent Psychotherapy is that area of psychotherapy with a particular focus on those clients under the age of eighteen. Adolescence is a time of searching for a sense of self and personal identity, through an intense exploration of personal values, beliefs, and goals. Alongside this exploration & period of great change, adolescents are faced with myriad challenges, from school and peer groups, to exam pressures and sexuality. There are times when adolescents may need extra support if they are finding it difficult to deal with, or understand their emotions and their behaviour.

Adolescent Psychotherapy Process

For those under 18 years of age we begin by meeting with parents/carers to carry out a parental intake. This session/s is solely for parents/carers, the adolescent does not attend this session/s. During the parental intake session/s our therapist will explore with parents/carers their concerns for their adolescent and formulate a therapeutic plan. Once the parental intake session/s is completed an appointment will be made for the adolescent to commence their therapeutic process. The primary goals of this initial session/s is to gain a clearer understanding of the caregivers' reasons for seeking counselling for the child, establish preliminary treatment goals, and to further educate the caregivers about the therapy and parent consultation processes. It is at this session/s that the therapist goes through Consent and contracting, sets goals and expectations and answers any questions.
