Adolescence

Adolescence is a complicated time, both for children who are facing this change into adulthood and the resulting problems, and for parents who often do not know how to act, and who feel disoriented and unsupported. Main problems that can occur among others include:

  • Conflictive family relations.
  • Academic Problems
  • Anxiety and phobias: social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, agoraphobia, panic attacks…
  • Body image disorders and eating disorders, such us: anorexia, bulimia, obesity, compulsive eating.
  • Depression (irritability, low mood and self-esteem).
  • Behavior problems.
