It’s pouring rain and we are wandering around the Uni buildings –
reception, sign in & general info, drink to acclimatise and funding!!
the student union, lecture theatre, accommodation & library.
3 hours later & all done?
Inspiration and a direction/focus identified?!?
A troubling, anxiety ridden time for lack lustre teenager & parent/s.
Your teenager is growing up rapidly and looking for their direction in life, wanting independance but also at times lacking confidence and feeling unsure about all the decisions to be made.
As a parent it can be very tricky supporting and guiding during this period, without seeming to be over controlling and exasperated.
Mood and motivation are big challenges –
Anxiety and depression can be a common feature of this stage of life and accessing appropriate help can be tricky. Where can a teenager express their feelings without being judged?
Often some simple changes can be made to help them achieve their dreams?
Exploring and finding some small steps to take, with a hypnotherapist, can start that process.
Looking at what strengths and skills the young adult has and accessing internal resources to build on what we as parents know they have within, can give them confidence to make more positive choices.
Some small changes can make a big shift, change the trajectory and find the right outcome.
