Teens can benefit from therapy just as much or more than adults. Therapy for adolescents and teens can help teens improve their overall functioning at home, school, within the family and with peers and their social environment. There are several types of psychotherapy that involve different approaches, techniques and interventions. Teenagers struggle with issues unique to their age. These may include identity problems, extreme peer pressure and fitting in. They are often stuck between wanting independence and still needing guidance. Therapists can help by using their understanding of the developmental challenges of teens in order to provide the most effective methods of counseling.
