Difficult / angry child / young adult

Diffcult child hiding under cushions

‘Difficult’ or ‘angry’ children need to uncover what is bothering them - Margaret helps them to find this out.

Counselling for the difficult or angry child / young adult

In the course of my practice, I have experienced significant success in working, and connecting, with young ‘difficult’ or ‘angry’ people.   Because I work ‘systemically’ (i.e. I look at the whole family system that is in place) I usually meet the young person with their parents initially.  Then, depending on the wishes of the young person and the requirements of the work, I might work with the young person on their own or with a parent present.

The intention of the work is for the young person to unearth the feelings that might need to be processed if they are to be freed up from their ‘angry’ or ‘difficult’ behaviour.  My experience has shown me that family situations are usually ‘co-constructed’ with everyone adopting a particular role.  Because of this, I believe that it’s important to engage the parents, and, if necessary, the rest of the family, in the change process.

There is not one ‘best fit’ that works for all parents and their children.  Each family is unique and I can help you find out what ‘fits best’ for everyone in your family.
