Teenagers and Families
Baird also understands what helps teenagers to function and thrive in their environment but also that sometimes they may experience upsets and worries that are hard to manage. Or perhaps they can feel unhappy or dissatisfied inside, or even angry, anxious or depressed. The supportive process of talking with an adolescent therapist in therapy sessions can be a means of discovering emotional stability, growth and/or a greater ability and confidence to undergo changes needed in one’s self. Please visit www.gapc.ie or www.blackfortinstitute.ie for further information.
Therapy sessions are one hour in length and are held weekly with adults or fortnightly/weekly with adolescents depending on assessed need. Professional fees apply.
Baird utilises professional supervision along with continuing professional development in order to maintain professional standards.
