10 reasons for Teenagers to attend Counselling

Updated: Feb 12, 2021

From mood swings to school issues, all teens have problems. But sometimes, a teen's distress might rise to a level where it's important to seek professional help.

Counselling certainly doesn’t need to be reserved for life-altering events or serious mental health problems, however. Meeting with a counsellor can prevent minor issues

from turning into major problems.

If you think your teen could benefit from talking to a mental health provider, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with a professional. Sometimes even just a few counselling sessions can make a big difference to your teen’s overall well-being.

Teens can benefit from meeting with a therapist to talk to about a variety of topics, ranging from relationship issues to questions about sexual identity.

  • Depression

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Behavioural Problems

  • Substance Abuse Issues


  • School + Social-Related Issues

  • Legal Problems

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Trauma

  • Grief

A quick word from De-Stress and be HAPPY

If you're questioning treatment for your teen, err on the side of caution and contact a professional. If your teen isn't interested in therapy, however, don't worry. Many teens are hesitant to talk to someone.

Encourage your teen to try counselling for a few sessions and then, you might allow them to make the decision about whether to continue. If your teen out rightly refuses counselling, you can be the one to talk to the counsellor. You may be able to gain new ideas and skills for helping your teen cope better.
