Adolescent and Young Adult Counselling

At times adolescents and young adults can feel stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious.

Illness in the family or a personal cancer diagnosis can be particularly stressful for a young person. In addition to the emotions adults encounter, young people may experience additional difficulties due to low self esteem, finding their identity, peer pressure, challenges of puberty, bullying, school and exam stress.

Feelings like these can become difficult for a young person to manage, and they may begin interfering with his or her well being, behaviour, relationships and general enjoyment of life.

This is where Counselling can help. Call us today on 01 215 0250 or email info@arccancersupport.ie to find out more.

A Different Approach

Our adolescent and young adult Counselling Service provides a safe place for young people to explore their often confusing thoughts, feelings and emotions.

While some young people prefer just to talk, others find this difficult and require a more creative approach to support them to understand and express themselves.

Our therapists work in a developmentally appropriate and eclectic way to establish a therapeutic relationship with our young clients, working creatively with him/her through a variety of media in addition to traditional talking therapy such as art, music, sand, clay, games, visualisation etc.
