At Psynaptica, we take much pride in our work with teenagers. Adolescence is a period of change, uncertainty and expectations both from oneself as well as parents, peers and teachers. It is also a time where teenagers construct their identity and purpose in life and lay key foundations for a healthy and successful adulthood.
Teenagers can suffer from many conditions such as depression, anxiety, attention difficulties, stress, and behavioural and/or chemical addictions. We provide psychological assessment services to rule out psychological disorders and describe in detail, cognitive abilities, vocational aptitude and behavioural characteristics. These assessments can help with diagnosis as well as intervention planning for personal growth and career choices.
We provide psychotherapy for teenagers and pay special attention to fostering a healthy, nurturing therapeutic alliance with our teen clients. Psychotherapy is particularly beneficial for troubled teens as it provides them with the time and space to reflect upon and articulate their problems, learn coping skills and grow as individuals.
