Teenage years are a time of rapid growth and change both physically and mentally. Characterised by growing independence and responsibility as well as changes in body shape, there is a lot to get used to!

During these years teenagers have many challenges to contend with including education and career choices, peer pressure and friendship groups, learning new skills such as driving. Alongside this sits the constant barrage of information from an ever-present social media creating further pressure about what to wear, how to act and what is cool. There is a lot to cope with. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help young people to take a positive approach to issues associated with teenage years.

What issues do Teenagers want help with?

Many issues that affect teenagers also affect adults. If you are looking for support with anxiety, stress, low mood or eating (for example) please take a look at the web pages dedicated to these issues.

More specific issues may also be experienced during teenage years. The many physical changes can lead to issues with self-esteem and confidence especially with the constant comparisons presented by social media. Anxiety associated with performance, whether this is to do with exams, presentations, tests or competitions is prevalent and can lead to feelings of overwhelm.

Relationships are important as peers begin to exert more of an influence than family and discovering ‘who you are’ and ‘where you fit in’ can also affect self-image and confidence. Teenage years may present us with our first experiences of intimate relationships as social life develops. With all this going in it is no wonder that teenagers can feel anxious, out of control and overwhelmed which lead to negative coping mechanisms, poor self-care and lack of sleep which compounds to make everything feel worse.
