Working with adolescents and young people.

The adolescent period is a time of dynamic change; there are many processes occurring simultaneously that can be exciting, confusing, exhilarating and scary for the young person. Often described as the “Individuating process” it is a period of human development during which the young person moves from dependency to independence, autonomy and maturity. Key areas of change at this time are Biological, Cognitive, Psychological, Social, Moral and Spiritual. These all have a significant impact on the young person’s sense of self and identity.

So, you can appreciate what a challenging time it can be for many. There’s a lot going on! Struggling with anxiety, stress, depression and low self esteem can make life feel very difficult.
