What do we treat?

    1. Depression: Children and adolescents can experience symptoms of depression, including persistent sadness, loss of interest, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, and feelings of worthlessness or guilt.

    2. Anxiety disorders: This includes generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, and specific phobias. Anxiety can manifest as excessive worrying, restlessness, difficulty concentrating, and physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat or shortness of breath.

    3. Substance abuse: Psychologists help adolescents who struggle with drug or alcohol abuse, addressing the underlying causes and providing support for recovery.

    4. Self-esteem and body image: Adolescence can be a challenging time for self-esteem and body image concerns, as teenagers may face pressures related to appearance, peer comparison, or societal expectations.

    5. Eating disorders: Conditions such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder can arise during the teenage years, and psychologists play a crucial role in diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

    6. Academic stress and performance anxiety: High expectations, academic pressure, and test anxiety can significantly impact a teenager’s mental well-being. Psychologists can assist in developing coping strategies and improving study habits.

    7. Self-harm and suicidal ideation: Some teenagers may engage in self-harm or experience thoughts of suicide. Psychologists work to provide support, assess risk, and develop safety plans.

    8. Behavioral problems: Issues like oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, or impulse control problems may require intervention to address disruptive or harmful behaviors.

    9. Family and relationship issues: Psychologists help children and adolescents navigate conflicts, communication problems, and issues related to their family dynamics, peer relationships, or romantic partnerships.

    10. LGBTQ+ concerns: Psychologists provide support and guidance to children and adolescents who are questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity, helping them explore their identity and cope with any associated challenges.

    11. Trauma and PTSD: Children and adolescents who have experienced traumatic events, such as abuse, violence, or accidents, may benefit from therapy to address trauma-related symptoms and promote healing.

    12. Stress management: Adolescence can be a stressful period, and psychologists can assist teenagers in developing healthy coping mechanisms and stress management skills.

    Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and psychologists may work with children and adolescents on various other issues depending on their individual circumstances and needs.
