Adolescent & Teen Issues

Adolescents can be under a lot of pressure. Friends, school, and family issues are just some of the many things that on their minds. These pressures can show themselves in a myriad of ways, and cause the adolescent to act out, become withdrawn, or show other signs of frustration, because they do not know how to effectively process their feelings.

Some of the signs that your teen is dealing with one or more issues:

  • Changes in personality
  • Acting withdrawn and uninterested in the world around them
  • Trouble with the law or at school
  • Substance abuse
  • Acting out in ways that will cause negative attention

How we can help

Because there are many different types of issues that may be troubling your adolescent, there is no one single solution. Instead, a trained therapist will work with you or your adolescent in order to ascertain the problems and come up with an individual method of treatment.

If you are ready to help your adolescent, please contact a counsellor at one of the Insight Psychological’s four locations in Calgary, Edmonton, Spruce Grove and Red Deer in order to see what we can do to help.
