TEEN COUNSELLING SERVICES IN LONDON, ON
Parents- are you worried about your teen?
Hey, parents. We get it – the feeling of helplessness, the knot in your stomach every time you see your teen struggling, the constant worry that you might be missing something crucial.
That's why our approach is rooted in empathy and understanding. We know that every teen is unique, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution.
Our team of dedicated therapists is experienced in working with teens, unraveling their thoughts and feelings, and helping them build the resilience they need to face life head-on. At London Trauma Therapy, we're your partner in helping your teen thrive through life's challenges. We've been there ourselves, and we've witnessed the transformation that can happen when the right support is provided.
The goal is not just to alleviate the symptoms but to guide your teen towards a path of growth and self-discovery. We're here to walk alongside you, offering you the guidance and tools you need to support your teen.
So, take a deep breath. You're not alone in your journey. Together, we can create a brighter future for your teen, filled with confidence, emotional well-being, and the resilience to conquer whatever challenges come their way.
Anxiety Therapy for Teens
Everyone worries from time to time, and this is a normal part of life. However, some teenagers experience worries that just don’t seem to go away. When one issue gets resolved, another worry crops up. Sometimes, young adults feel constant worry and dread although nothing externally warrants the concern.
If your teen seems anxious in a way that is disproportionate to their circumstances, or if they are overly concerned on a consistent basis, we can help.
Signs of anxiety in teens include:
Feeling constantly agitated, tense or restless
Persistent worrying about things that are unlikely to occur
Avoiding situations that make them feel uncomfortable
Trouble eating or sleeping
Physical symptoms such as “butterflies” in the stomach, racing heart, dizziness or shakiness
At the LCTT, we offer many different approaches to treating anxiety with teens. One approach that we have tremendous success with is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT Therapy). This is a treatment that is also very useful for depression.
Depression Therapy for Teens
Depression is a serious mental health concern that causes persistent feelings of anger, lack of vitality, sadness, hopelessness and low self-worth. Depression in teenagers impacts their physical health, social and emotional relationships, outlook on life, family relationships and school work. As a parent, we all just want our kids to be happy. It can be devastating to watch your child suffering, and it is equally devastating for teens to feel hopeless and lost.
Some symptoms of depression in teenagers are:
Feelings of sadness, sometimes with no discernible cause
Loss of interest in activities that they once enjoyed
Feelings of worthlessness and shame
Trouble thinking and concentrating
Persistent thoughts that life is bleak and the future is hopeless
Thoughts of suicide or death
It can be terrifying to know a teen is struggling, but here at the LCTT we are trained extensively in adolescents and we offer treatment for depression with lasting change so that teenagers can get back to building a life they love.
How Therapy Can Help Teens
Working with a therapist that your teen connects with can be one of the most vital and important supports you can provide your child with. We're here to provide a confidential, non-judgmental space where teens can freely express themselves.
Through therapy, your teen can:
Overcome limiting beliefs
Learn coping mechanisms
Build stronger relationships
