Youth therapy

Youth therapy refers to short therapy or psychotherapy provided by mental health professionals specializing in working with adolescents. All of our therapists working with young people are psychologists or psychotherapists, and appointments are available from Helsinki to Oulu, as well as online.

In therapy, you can chat in peace and confidence about your personal matters alone with the therapist. It’s your own time. Together, you can decide whether you want to attend sessions alone or if you’d like your parents to join, for example, at times. Sometimes parents can also benefit from one or a few support sessions where they can discuss thoughts related to parenting with the therapist. Youth therapy is just as confidential as therapy for adults – the therapist doesn’t disclose individual therapy discussions to the parent or adolescent.

When to consider youth therapy?

For young people, it’s especially important that they receive support from a mental health professional as early as possible.

Often, young individuals only seek therapy when they are experiencing significant distress or depression, and the situation has been ongoing for a long time. At that point, it’s crucial to seek counseling. However, it’s advisable to consider therapy even when something is bothering or troubling you, and the situation hasn’t become prolonged – a few counseling sessions can already be helpful and may suffice.

The duration of therapy for young people is typically around 5-20 sessions, depending on the situation. An expert can assess the situation and the extent of support needed during the initial appointment.
