Are you thinking that something needs to change? Do you feel a little tired, scared, hurt or fed up? Are there meaningful things in your life that aren't working out right now? Is it time you stood up, and took on, what has been heavy on your mind or heart? I have worked with hundreds of individuals, couples and families who have faced challenges and transitions that many of us experience at some time in our lives. I am familiar with the things life can throw your way, and how to be able to thrive, not just survive, afterwards.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with 9 years experience working with Children, Youth and their Family. As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope. I see my professional role as helping individuals recognize their own strengths and beauty by being present with them in their mental health journey.

Peer Relationships in L1N

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in L1N

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in L1N

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in L1N or for a L1N peer relationship Counsellor these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counselling in L1N and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Counsellors, peer relationship psychologists in L1N and peer relationship counsellors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L1N are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
