For parents and carers

My teenager hates me! My teen doesn’t listen to me! My teen is anxious and stressed out. My teen is lonely and depressed.

Does this sound like you?

At The Therapy Hub, we offer hope for frustrated parents.

Teen counselling is a great place to start. A trained and experienced counsellor can be a game changer for teens and their families. We offer hope for frustrated parents. At The Therapy Hub, we are here to support you. We provide counselling to teens and families. We help teens feel better about themselves and improve their confidence.

What we can help with

  • School refusal
  • Relationship breakup
  • Parents separating or divorcing
  • Fitting in, self-esteem, confidence
  • Low achievement and study skills.
  • Depression & anxiety
  • PTSD/ trauma
  • Transitions to university
  • Gender and sexuality support / questions
  • ASD support
  • Social skills
  • Difficulty with concentration, insight, attention span
  • Lack of motivation affecting ability to get out of bed/ go to school
  • Physical illness or disability that affects functioning

There is no one complete list of issues that teens come across, but you can see how all these things can build up over time, especially if you don’t feel that you can talk about you worries or thoughts openly with anyone.

Guiding your teen through a difficult period in their life can be challenging.  You may have difficulty relating to their experience or you may find it confronting that they have an issue at all, and feel it may reflect on you or your parenting style.  We support parents in understanding how they can support their teenager through a difficult time, and provide you with tools to first feel comfortable with your role in their scenario and equip you with tools and strategies to enable you to be a solid resource in difficult times and build a stronger relationship.

Sometimes an individual’s problem is affecting the entire family, such as an addiction, depression, or behavioural problems. Working together as a whole family can be really valuable. Family therapy can be useful for addressing family-wide problems such as conflicts between siblings, spouses, or parents and children

Not sure how to help your teen?

As a parent it can be hard to know what to do. We’ve created some resources that can support you in this journey.

In addition to providing individual and family counselling.

The Therapy Hub conducts training for parents, teachers and carers on supporting young people through their crisis. For more information on course content and scheduled events click here.
