Anxiety and Depression In Teenagers

I had a teenage girl see me today. She is suffering from anxiety and depression and is only 14.

Why? Because the other girls at school exclude her. She tries to fit in by wearing make-up and acting the way do around them, even though she hates how they act.

No-one has taught the child to value herself and that she does not neeed the acceptance of others. We are working on strategies so that my client can recognise the good things about her and be confident that these are enough.


She left today believing that she is a kind person. We achieved a lot.


Build your daughters up. Give them power.
