The teenage years are a tough time for many and we know that the pressures of school, peers and the online world, can be experienced as overwhelming.
We have worked with many adolescents suffering from anxiety; manifesting in difficulties with food and eating, feelings of uncontainable rage, feeling unable to go to school, self-harming and experiencing suicidal thoughts.
It is, of course, important for parents to feel that their teen is in ‘good hands’ and we aim to establish this confidence in our initial meetings with families. Going forward though, our experience is that teens need to know that their time in therapy is confidential and therefore a protected space where they can express themselves without fear of scaring, offending or upsetting others.
Our work involves supporting many teens who find attending school difficult. School refusal can put pressure on everyone involved, often leaving family members with feelings of helplessness, not knowing where to turn or what to do. This often resulting in teens spending time in their rooms, resulting in isolation, self harm and sometimes thoughts of ending their lives.

A parent whose teen attending therapy recently said,
" Essere Therapies were there when we were in a very desperate and sad situation. They supported our child through a very difficult time and without Essere Therapies we wouldn’t be where we are now. Our child went from not attending school at all to attending school for most of every day and last week he did his first full day. The therapist was wonderful and we can't thank you enough."
