Misneach Counselling and Psychotherapy Services strives on providing a safe & understanding space for adolescents to explore;
with an understanding of how difficult it is to navigate adolescence. The stage of Adolescence brings many pressures, where teenagers start to behave in ways that puzzle and concern themselves, their parents/teachers.
This can lead to a blaming and labelling cycle, which can do damage to a teenager’s psyche. It is a difficult time where conflict can arise in the home or school environment. This is a time, where teenagers assert their independence, in their attempt to individuate and form their identity.
This difficult period of transition can leave a teenager feeling isolated, lost, lonely and uncertain and become involved in unsafe and risk taking behaviours in an effort to “part of” a group or situation.

Relationship issues with parents, teachers, siblings, friends, peers, girlfriend/boyfriend
