Teenagers often experience problems with identity, impulse control and school anxiety or stress. Self harm is increasing common in teenagers, as are eating disorders and depression.
A number of mental health issues often are first diagnosed in teenagers including OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Our Clinical Psychologists are experienced in working with teenagers and their families and offer both individual and family therapies. Therapy is often based around Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but a systemic approach will often be used with families. Teenagers are often seen individually but parents are included in the treatment and joint sessions will be arranged where possible.
Therapies recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) are always used.
