I work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are coping with difficult behaviours, anxiety or mood concerns. Parents can often feel overwhelmed in helping their children, so I support families to help them manage life stressors and difficult emotions. My goal is to help children, youth, and parents have easier and more pleasant days. I use evidence-based strategies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Within my work helping youth, young adults, and parents, I have a specialty of helping people coping with medical conditions or anxiety about medical procedures.

From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well.

You may be someone who has experience with some of the tougher stuff in life- sadness, worry, repetitive thoughts, and experiences that are hard to talk about like numbness, isolation, violence and trauma. You are someone who is curious to dig deeper to learn more about these life events and how they are impacting your life now. You are ready now to move through and beyond the difficulty into something that feels more like the real you.

In the words of a wise pop singer in the 1990's, "Everybody hurts, sometimes." While difficulties do arise in every human life, we can sometimes become overwhelmed when we experience intense suffering (for example, depressed mood, anxiety, self-esteem or relationship problems). As we try to help ourselves feel better, we can then develop unhelpful coping strategies, behaviours, or symptoms that further complicate our lives and drain us of joy, energy, and serenity. However, I believe we are all born with an innate ability to heal, grow, and thrive, and my goal is to help my clients activate this ability.

Peer Relationships in Bedford

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 Bedford

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 Bedford

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 Bedford or for a Bedford peer relationship Counsellor these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counselling in Bedford and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Counsellors, peer relationship psychologists in Bedford and peer relationship counsellors.
