Therapy for Teens

Navigating adolescence can be a challenging journey filled with transitions, uncertainties, and emotional ups and downs. At Melbourne Psychology House, we recognise the unique pressures and complexities teenagers face today. Our dedicated therapists provide a safe and supportive space where teens can express themselves freely and work through their challenges with compassion and understanding,  without fear of judgment or repercussions. Whether facing school stress, social pressures, family conflicts, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, or navigating identity and relationships, therapy provides a valuable outlet and support system.


Common Problems Experienced by Teens

  • Behavioural issues: defiance, substance use, or self-harm.

  • Academic pressures:performance anxiety or perfectionism.

  • Family dynamics: navigating parental divorce, conflict, or communication breakdown.

  • Social challenges: bullying, peer pressure, or social anxiety.
