Nowadays, adolescence is the most talked about and complicated theme in the psychology of the ages. It is a sensitive and complicated age. Adolescence is the transition period of the child towards maturity, a period filled with changes on different levels: physical, psychological, cognitive and social.
Adolescence is the golden age, but also the age of drama and conflicts, of revolts and impossible loves. Above all, adolescence is the age when our personality and self-image are formed. The teenager searches for his identity, trying to understand who s/he is and who s/he will become now that s/he left childhood behind.
Puberty appears, usually, during this stage, bringing forth series of physical and emotional changes. These changes may bring tension in their relations with their parents.
Psychotherapy can offer them emotional support, help them in solving conflicts with others, make them understand their own feelings and problems, find new solutions for older problems. It can help them discover their fears, but also the tools required to overcome them and move on towards their dreams.
