Adolescent Counselling

Why adolescent therapy?

The adolescent years come with many opportunities for personal growth and self-discovery, however, they do not come without their challenges. Your adolescent may be experiencing anxiety, depression, academic stress, struggles with self-image, or perhaps has gone through recent traumatic experiences. Through counselling, we are here to help your adolescent better understand their emotions and how to successfully communicate their difficulties.

Who we are

Our Approach

At Talking Works, we believe in working alongside parents/guardians in order to help children and adolescents thrive within their environments. We take an integrative approach to counselling, drawing on a range of evidence-based therapies to create a holistic and individualised treatment plan that addresses the unique needs and goals of each person. Attachment science tells us that early relationships matter most so we strive to create a safe and secure attachment with each person we work with. Using attachment based therapy (ABT) as the foundation for all of our work, we are better able to understand the complex relationships that shape an adolescent’s development and wellbeing.

We also pull from the tenets of internal family systems therapy (IFS) to help adolescents explore various “parts” of their personalities, to better understand their emotions and needs, and to develop a stronger sense of self-awareness and self-compassion. We work to create a space where adolescents can express themselves creatively through play based therapy (PBT), process difficult emotions, and learn healthy coping strategies.
