Teens counselling can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-discovery. We can help you explore and address any issues affecting your well-being, from anxiety and depression to relationship challenges and lack of motivation. We’ll work together to develop coping strategies to help you overcome the challenges you are facing.

Beginning the Journey: The Structure of Teen Therapy

The first step in the teen therapy process is an initial family assessment appointment. This 75-minute session is offered to the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the adolescent together. Meeting as a family unit allows me to gain valuable insight into your teenager’s strengths, important family history, and the reasons you are seeking support at this time.

This exploratory session aims to paint a rich picture of your family’s dynamics, parenting styles, and the unique personalities and experiences within the household. It provides an anchor point from which we can work collaboratively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling solely on problems.

Prior to the appointment, I will provide you with some questionnaires to help me better understand the current concerns and mental wellbeing of your teenager. These questionnaires will gather important background information and allow you to outline the specific issues or challenges you are seeking support for. By completing them in advance, we can make the most of our initial family session, ensuring I have a comprehensive understanding of your unique situation from the outset.

The family assessment session offers a safe space for everyone to meet me, ask questions, and gain an understanding of how the therapeutic process works. While therapy can sometimes feel daunting, this initial appointment ensures that all parties are on board and comfortable with the approach.



Adolescent therapy, also known as teenage therapy, is a specialised area of psychotherapy tailored to meet the unique needs of young people. The focus is on helping teens cope with a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues that may arise during this pivotal stage of development.

Adolescence is a time of significant growth and change, with the brain, body, and emotions undergoing profound transformations. As their social and academic worlds expand, adolescents are tasked with navigating new experiences, relationships, and an ever-evolving sense of self. This process can be overwhelming, leading to stress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health challenges.

Through therapy, adolescents gain a supportive space to explore their thoughts, feelings, and identities without judgment. They develop coping strategies and tools to build resilience, both now and in the future, as they transition into adulthood.

Together, we support the adolescent in navigating their personal growth, fostering healthier thought patterns, behaviors, and relationships. By working collaboratively with the entire family, we can promote greater understanding, communication, and a nurturing environment for your teen to thrive.



Initial Family Assessment /review session (75 mins): €160 

Individual Teen Session (45-50 mins): €80

If teen therapy feels like the right path forward, we can then arrange for one-on-one sessions with your adolescent. These individual sessions typically last 45-50 minutes. Periodic family sessions may also be scheduled, in consultation with the adolescent and parents/guardians, to address any ongoing concerns or review progress.

I usually recommend 6 sessions to give therapy a chance to take effect and after 6 sessions we review and see how you are getting on.

Each session will be different and depends largely on what you want to bring to the session. The end goal is to help you resolve any issues that concern you.

This is achieved by providing you with a safe and confidential space to talk through things and by giving you the tools that will help you cope and feel better.
