I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own.
Teenagers who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, we’ll explore the problem(s) you are facing and find solutions by expanding on your strengths, skills, and capabilities.
What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
A therapist will be able to see things from your perspective , identify what is contributing to your distress and intervene in the areas necessary in order to ensure that you receive appropriate support at this time.
Why shouldn’t I just take medication?
Medication can be effective but it alone cannot solve all issues. Sometimes medication is needed, sometimes counselling is needed, and sometimes a combination of medication and talk therapy can very effective. We can discuss this option and if we feel that medication might be helpful for you I will recommend a visit to your G.P. to discuss this option with him/her.
Will you tell my parents what we talk about in sessions?
If I have reason to believe that a child has been physically, sexually, or emotionally abused, or has experienced neglect.
If I have reason to believe that you might seriously harm yourself or someone else. If a court order or other legalisation legally requires me to provide information..
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general questions page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them. The length of time counselling takes depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counselling in the first place.
