While psychological therapy can address some deep and painful issues, it doesn't need to be all about pain and suffering. In fact, it is often more about understanding yourself and others differently. It is about learning how to cope with challenging situations such as relationship dissatisfaction, uncertainty over the future, transitioning from one situation to another, handling strong emotions like fear, loss, or anger, and healing pains from the past. These universal experiences can be overwhelming. I can help you navigate them more smoothly and set yourself up for success on the other side of it.

Peer Relationships in Oakville

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 Oakville

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 Oakville

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