Youth & Adolescent Counselling

Adolescence is one of the most important stages of human development. During the teenage years, young people face many physical, psychological, identity and relationship changes on their journey to adulthood.  While adolescence is often stereotyped as a difficult and tumultuous time, it is important to remember that many adolescents move through this developmental stage of life respectfully and peacefully.  Happy Minds adolescent counselling services help teenagers and their families to identify ways to approach this time in a way that encourages their psycho-social development.
