Adolescent counseling is a form of therapy specifically designed for teenagers, typically between the ages of 12 and 18. It is aimed at addressing the unique challenges and struggles faced by adolescents as they navigate through their teenage years. Adolescent counseling can help address a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, low self-esteem, academic stress, substance abuse, and behavioral problems.
During counseling sessions, a licensed therapist works with the adolescent to help them identify and understand their thoughts and feelings, develop coping skills, and build resilience. The therapist may use a combination of talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, or other approaches to provide a safe and supportive environment where the adolescent can express themselves and work through their problems.
