Are You A “Teenager"?
If you fall within the age range of 13-19 years, you are a “Teenager.”
This stage of your life, called “Adolescence,” is a transitional stage between childhood and adulthood, and involves physical, cognitive, emotional, social and cultural changes. Managing these sudden transitions such as physical changes, changes in family relationships, friendships, responsibilities, and romantic relationships, can be quite stressful. It can also feel embarrassing to talk to someone about these issues.
We understand how challenging this stage can be. Therefore, our online therapy for teenagers that we offer is designed to help you navigate through this stage with ease.
Concerns Teen Counseling Deals With
The ages 13-19 are period of rapid changes in your life. Rapid physical, emotional, and psychological changes can make it difficult to adjust, and can also result in some mental health challenges.
Managing all these changes can be difficult and overwhelming. Along with these changes, there also lies the challenge of wanting to fit in with everyone, and feel independent. As a teenager, it can often feel frustrating when others fail to understand you and your need to be independent.
Sometimes, opening up to another person in the family can feel embarrassing. Talking about your issues with another person is great, but choosing the right person to open up to can be a challenge.
Thus, online therapy can be an effective tool to help you manage the stress and anxiety that occurs during this stage. Some of the concerns we can help you with are:
During adolescence you may sense that your parents are unable to understand you and your interests. This can give rise to some conflicts or disagreements at home.
Creating your own sense of identity by figuring out your likes and dislikes, and being accepted by friends and people around you can be overwhelming.
This stage also involves figuring out your career and educational interests. Choosing an option you’re interested in may not be something that is “mainstream” or accepted by your family or people around you.
Dating & Relationships
During this stage, you may find yourself feeling romantically attracted to people, or others feeling that way about you. This can bring a lot of curiosity, stress, and confusion within you , and you may find it embarrassing to talk about these feelings to another person or friends.
At this stage, you may be interested in finding friends you’re interested in spending time with. Figuring out the right set of people for you can also mean letting go of certain friendships.
Often, you may feel pressured by your friends and peers to attempt something you’re uncomfortable with. This could cause you to feel indecisive of whether to engage in what others are doing, or doing what you feel like. There may also be a fear of missing out or not being accepted if you fail to do what your friends tell you.
Managing Academic Stress
Teenage is also a time where you are constantly pressured to do well in school. This may bring a looming fear or worry over not doing well in your academics, and how it can impact your life and career ahead.
Body Image Issues
Due to the new physical changes in your body, you may feel the need to compare yourself to others around you. You may be curious about your body, but feeling the need to look perfect can make you look out for flaws in your body which can give you stress. This can lead to body-image issues and eating disorders.

FAQs for Teen Counseling
Therapists working with Teenagers are mindful of the unique difficulties faced by people in that age group, and suggest techniques according to them. Thus, individuals seeking therapy can feel more connected and understood by the therapists.
Therapy does involve talking about issues. But, therapists also assess client’s concerns to help work on them. It is a collaborative process that involves understanding their thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and setting goals to build healthy coping mechanisms to handle issues.
Managing multiple changes can get stressful for teenagers. Therefore, therapy can be a great outlet for them to process their emotions, and adopt healthy coping mechanisms.
All our therapists are qualified psychologists with a post graduate degree in clinical or counseling psychology. We do not hire people with diplomas or short-term training courses. They are all personally interviewed and hired by our founder Sadia Saeed who is a trained clinical psychologist and has been practicing for over 23 years. She not only ensures their qualification but also verifies their therapeutic approach. We believe it is very important that our therapists come from a supportive and exploratory therapeutic approach rather than an advisory one.
Most therapists conduct their sessions once a week for the duration of one hour. Therefore, the timings for sessions can be scheduled as per you and the therapist’s convenience. While therapy can seem time-consuming, it is a great investment towards your mental health and quality of life.
