Psycotherapy for Teens


Each person, in the course of the life, finds himself facing the transition from childhood to adulthood; that is the age of adolescence, which is generally comprised between 11-19 years for girls and between 12 and 21 for boys.This is a very special age, but at the same time also difficult, because it involves so many changes, both physically and psychologically, often difficult to accept.Teenager becomes rebellious and this is one of the problems that occurs especially in early teens. Often it goes against many rules imposed not only by parents, but also from school figures.

It happens that, in the age of adolescence, they drop interest in going to school and getting an education; this can be a problem when there is a case of low performance and bad marks. Very often perception experienced by boys and girls is low self-esteem. This manifests itself not only in the form of dissatisfaction with their physical appearance, not feeling “beautiful”, but also of their ability level. Low self-esteem is often accompanied by other moods such as depression and anxiety and can be traced to the same problem, not being able to reach a result, a good mark at school or a goal during a football match, or be so obsessed from bullies to try anxiety every time that the individual (or individuals) approach.Additional symptoms that may develop are self-harm of his/her own body or, as better known, “cutters” to find relief. Bulimia and anorexia applicaple usually to girls who see themselves as too big to be accepted by others.

Many times the boys and girls are being targeted by bullies, but very often they can be themselves the “executioners”.

This could lead to try different states of anxiety, depression and low self-esteem enough to not want to attend the same environments like school, public places and transport.
