Life is hard right now. I know, I've been there. You are going through changes that you might not understand, or maybe you do. You have friends, people you like, and people you dislike. School is stressful-- the papers, the tests, the teachers, the other students, the extracurriculars, the job (possibly). There is a lot to focus on. Family stuff is also hard sometimes-- difficult communication, chores, siblings, talking to your parents... Being you is also stressful-- the media says be one way, and you want to be you, but also fit in, but also be unique... this can create some self-esteem issues. Therapy can be a safe place to talk about the things that bother you and work on them. Therapy is not for "crazy" people; therapy is for everyone because everyone is going through something. Going does not make you weird, it makes you stronger, healthier, and happier. Family sessions can also be helpful in order to better express to your family what is happening in your life, at school, and in your busy mind. Think about it...
Teens are already difficult to deal with. Society likes to say this because it's true. But it's only true because they are going through so many life changes at once (that's scary!). In less than a decade, they have grown, their bodies have changed drastically, they have more responsibilities, and they are almost adults (yikes!). Teens are in a transitional stage in life where they want to find independence from you, but they still depend on you for so much. They have some of the same issues you had as teens, but so much more with body image issues, cyber bullying, and schedules being fuller from activities and friends. Individual sessions for your teen(s) can be helpful for them to have a safe space to talk about things that bother them. This doesn't mean they are necessarily keeping secrets form you, they just need someone unbiased to process issues with. Family sessions are wonderful as well! Communication and structure within the family can dwindle in these turbulent times. Learning to better communicate and structure the household can help the whole family function more successfully!
