Adolescent & Young Adult Psychology

“Making Psychology Accessible to Everyone”

Moving into the teenage years then into your 20s brings an array of changes and new challenges to manoeuvre for both teenagers, young adults, and their parents. Creating Change want to ensure they develop a secure sense of self, follow their dreams, develop a sense of responsibility and care so they make wise decisions throughout their life. We want all teenagers and young adults to be equipped to effectively understand what is happening in their life developmentally, to manage their emotional experiences, to develop effective interpersonal skills, and the tools to be disciplined and maximise their potential.

 

COMMON CHALLENGES FOR TEENAGERS

Do your teenager’s emotions oscillate like a rollercoaster?

Is your teen feeling lost and unsure of who they are?

Are your teenager’s moods extreme – do they seem down and withdrawn?

Are they feeling stressed or worrying about returning to school?

Do they seem distracted by social media or online video games?

Are they finding it difficult to cope with the stress of exams or the HSC?

Are you concerned your teenager is not developing at the expected rate?
