Do you sometimes find it hard to talk to friends and family? Do you feel that you are alone? Do you feel that your parents do not understand you? Is something bothering you at school or at home? Do you feel down? Do you feel stressed or anxious? Are you being bullied? Do you self-harm? Do you have low self-esteem?
These are just some of the pressures that teenagers face today. Whatever you are facing in your life, it is probably a good idea to share it with others.
Most of the time we can talk to our friends or our family about our problems. Sometimes it is not possible and this is when you might need to meet a counsellor. Coming to see a counsellor helps because they are independent from school and home life.
Many young people come to counselling to talk about a specific problem, to learn a little more about himself or herself, or simply for someone to talk to about what’s going on in their lives.
The counsellors at AnneLeigh understand the difficulties that teenagers like yourself face today and value and care about how you are feeling. They are there to help you. They are not there to judge but to provide a safe place to help you understand how you feel and to help you find ways to feel better.
