FAQ’s for adolescent Psychologist sessions

 

My teenager is nervous about coming, what should I do?

Meeting a new person can be a little scary. So we make it as easygoing and comfortable as possible. Our adolescent Clinical Psychologists are experienced at working with teenagers. It’s great if parents can come to the first session. You might stay for part or the whole of the session. We like to ask questions about the family and about early childhood so it’s really helpful if you are there too. When your teen is ready to chat by themselves, you can relax in our waiting room. We can all chat at the end about the next steps.

 

Is every session confidential?

Every session and all information communicated to your Psychologist is confidential unless we are worried about someone being at risk of harm or if there is a legal obligation for us to disclose information. We talk with teenagers about privacy and about the things that are important to share with parents. We want the best for your teenager. So that means we might talk with you about their needs. We also help teenagers open up to parents.

 

Can I have sessions with my teenager to improve our relationship?

If your teenager would like to have sessions with you then we think that is a great idea. We regularly have sessions with teenagers and parents to help with communication. We can share ideas about independence and help with arguments and any changes at home.

 

My teenager isn’t ready for a session. Can I come and talk to you first?

Yes! Parenting teens is very different from parenting young children. We help you to improve communication and connection.
