"My approach to each client is individual, depending on how the client feels comfortable working. Although each of my sessions are different, I still offer support and an empathic space to all of my clients. I work from a Person-centred base; however, I combine several elements to my work. Such as; Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) leading me to work in an integrative way. Feeling stuck or out of control with your emotions can be a tough battle to face; however, counselling gives you the space to overcome and gain an understanding of yourself and emotions."

Peer Relationships Counsellors
Peer Relationships in Wakefield

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 Wakefield

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 behaviour. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behaviour. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Wakefield

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behaviour 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 behaviour, 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 behaviour when with their peers.

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