Supporting & Encouraging Teens to Live Fully
At Evolution Wellness in Wilmington, NC, our therapists offer counseling for teens. If you’re like many young people we work with, you’re struggling through some of the most difficult years of your life.
Understanding the Teen & Adolescent
Experience – This is for You, Parents
The teen years pose some of the most difficult challenges for young people and their families. Teenagers, dealing with hormone changes, life transitions, and navigating a complex world, may feel that no one can understand what they’re going through, especially not their parents. As a result, the teen may feel angry, isolated, and confused while facing complicated issues such as identity, their peers’ perceptions of them, and sexual desires and orientations, as well as experimenting with drinking and drug uses.
Parents may be frustrated and angry that the teen seems to no longer respond to parental authority. They may feel frightened and helpless about the choices their teen is making. As they seek greater independence, teens often come into conflict with their parents. Most get through the rebellious adolescence with few problems, establishing their identities and preparing for adulthood and independence. Some, however, experience more serious and potentially dangerous problems. Parents, you don’t have to “fix” your teen, and you don’t have to be the only one to help them. Sometimes, you just can’t be the one who provides the love and support they need. Remember the old saying “It takes a village to raise a child?” Maybe Evolution Wellness can be part of your village.
Benefits of Teen Counseling
Alright, teens, we’re talking to you again. Look, we know you’re feeling isolated, overwhelmed, and just plain stressed. Being a teenager has never been more difficult than it is today, and you probably think of therapy as laying on a couch and talking about Freud or something – that’s not what we do at Evolution Wellness. Our counselors for teens are real people who get what it’s like to be a real person, and that’s what we want to talk to you about. Trouble at school, why you’re always fighting with your parents, where you want to be in the next five years, and how you can feel most fully like yourself.
Counseling can help just about anyone at any age, but some of the benefits of therapy specific for you as a young adult include:
- Improving self-esteem
- Alleviating depression
- Coping with anxiety and stress
- Helping with behavior problems
- Assisting with school issues and improving academics
- Offering guidance during your formative years
- Giving you a safe place to vent
- Improving relationships at home with family
- Increasing social effectiveness and improving peer relations
- Pursuing future goals
- Learning anger management strategies
- Helping you stop making poor choices with potentially harmful consequences
What Teen Counseling Sessions Look Like
Our counselors for teens are knowledgeable in specific therapy strategies that are effective in overcoming your unique problems. We’ll combine our knowledge and experience to provide the most effective therapy for you. We’re not going to be talking about just how you think and feel either. Instead, we’re going to be talking about what you do, who you are, and how you’re going to become the person you dream of being. Through real-world skills like meditation, exercise, and nutrition combined with strategies to improve your emotional and mental health – you’ll be amazed by just how great you can feel and how much excitement you’ll have for the future.
