It is well known that the teenage years represent a challenging time in life. Many teenagers are confronted with the question of identity: Who am I? Outside pressures – parents, school, peers, society – all have their say in this matter.

Through the simple power of the therapeutic alliance, these questions are tackled both directly and indirectly. I trust in the healing power of the relationship itself, as I have seen ample evidence of its impact.
