Are You A Parent?

Many teens can feel embarrassed or afraid open up, even to very approachable parents, about what they’re really going through. Counselling can provide a safe space for teens to explore their emotions and learn healthy coping strategies.

Some teens are not on board with counselling and convincing them can feel like an uphill battle. Click here to learn about why some teens hate therapy. We want you to know that whenever appropriate, our counsellors include parents in the process as we believe deeply in the power of the parent-child relationship.

“Adolescents who are absorbing negative messages about who they are and what is expected of them may sink to that level instead of realizing their true potential. As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote, Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of being.”

– Daniel J. Siegel
