being young has particular challenges
Therapy for Teenagers
Being young has particular challenges. As we develop we strive to make sense of the world around us, our relationships and ourselves. Negotiating these terms can prove difficult for even the most seasoned among us.
With the developing nature of early years, these challenges can pose additional questions and effects.
Professional child and adolescent therapists are trained to listen out for, and work with, the particular issues that teenagers and children routinely face. An adolescent therapist can not do it alone though, and will often work in tandem with parents.See an Adolescent Counsellor

Our Adolescent Therapist
As a clinic we’re not a mish-mash of different styles or levels of training. We all hold at least one relevant masters degree. We’re all psychoanalytic psychotherapists, too.
Our adolescent therapist, Maeve, has gone a step further and holds an additional postgraduate qualification in conjunction with St. Vincent’s University Hoispital.
As an accredited therapist Maeve is a member of the Association of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland (APPI) and Irish Council of Psychotherapy (ICP). Maeve adheres to their Code of Ethics and Practice.
Maeve has clinical experience in a variety of settings including the National Maternity Hospital, the Tower Probation Programme, Kilbarrack Coast Community Programme, Naas Child and Family Programme and student counselling services in third level institutions. She also lectures at third level.Book Therapy for Teenagers

What to know
- Once an appointment has been scheduled, Maeve will call you to very briefly run through the process.
- The initial session will be held with at least one parent, or guardian, of the young person. The young person must not attend the first session.
- This session will be used to speak about parent’s concerns, family history, and also about the process itself.
- Consent of both parents will be needed to proceed with the work.
- Following the initial session, the young person will meet Maeve, and begin the work.
- A parent is required to be present in the waiting area during all sessions for any person below the age of 16.
- We do not provide diagnoses, reports or assessments at the clinic. We believe in working through issues rather than labelling them.
- The cost of the first appointment is €95 and the cost afterwards can be agreed with the therapist.
- Session length is variable, but typically would not be any longer than 50 minutes.
- We work with children and adolescents from the age of 6 upwards.
