I have helped a number of teenagers recently to manage the stress in their lives. As this article on the BBC website shows it’s a common problem. It requires urgent attention and your GP may not be able to offer much help.
Being a teenager is stressful. There is pressure to achieve good results at school and university. There is pressure to look good and appear as successful as others. There is a lot of pressure to “perform” at social events, which makes them stressful and not much fun. And of course there is the roller-coaster of relationships and its wheels don’t run smoothly.
The teenage years are a period of huge and almost constant change, with new challenges around every corner, with the world looking on. As adults, I’m sure all of us can recall some bad times as a teenager. Some of us coped pretty well but others did not. Maybe those teenage troubles are still with us today in the form of depression or addiction.
Teenagers need a helping hand at times and the combination of Counselling and Hypnotherapy offered by Vital Minds can help.
