"We all experience different challenges at different times throughout our lives. This can be overwhelming and sometimes hard to process. Feeling sad, low, angry, scared and anxious are just some of the emotions we can feel when faced with these challenges and often it can be hard to discuss these with those closest to us. Counselling is a safe place to explore life events and the emotions, thoughts and behaviour they bring with them, in a non-judgmental and confidential environment. Together we can unearth the way you want to think, feel or act; your future goal, and together we can work towards achieving this. I am a professionally qualified Counsellor, who can offer a supportive and empathic working space for all individuals to explore their worries and concerns, working on a one to one basis, via face to face sessions. Together we can address issues past and present and uncover useful coping mechanisms to embrace challenges old and new."

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.
