Do you sometimes feel alone, find it hard to talk to friends and family? Are you finding something at home or at school difficult? Do you feel that your parents do not understand you? Do you feel down or sad? Are you being bullied? Do you feel stressed or anxious? Do you self-harm? Do you have low self-esteem?

These are just some of the pressures that teenagers face today. Whatever you are facing or finding difficult in your life, it is probably a good idea to share it with others.

Most of the time we can talk to our friends or our family about our problems but sometimes this is not possible, this is when you might need to meet a counsellor. Coming to see a counsellor helps because they are independent from school and from home life.

Many young people come to counselling to talk about a specific problem, to learn a little more about himself or herself, or simply for someone to talk to about what’s going on in their lives.

The counsellors at the Clonmel Counselling Centre understand the difficulties that teenagers like you face today and we value and care about how you are feeling. We are here to help you and not to judge you. We provide a safe place to help you understand how you feel and to help you find ways to feel better.
