Teenagers 13-17 years – Dr Terry Olesen

Dr Terry Olesen      Quals: BA, MA, PhD (Psychology), Grad Certificate Career Development (Counselling).

Supporting Your Adolescent’s Well-being: Dr. Terry Olesen will bring to bear his experience as a former School Psychologist to help you as parent deal with a teenage son/daughter who has come to grief in their dealings with peers, classmates, teachers or  family members. Systemic Family and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy are the therapies of choice here.

Counselling Approach: Systemic Family Therapy (SFT) is used to view and understand the types of interaction (relationships) between family members, which can be empathetic, cold, angry, detached, hurt, or positive, among many other things.

Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) is devoted to helping you and/or other family members step back and see “objectively” the many social constructs (beliefs, memories, rules and habits) which stop one’s living authentically and vibrantly. ACT when learned and consistently practiced will help your son or daughter re-interpret painful cognitions or events; after such a process your son or daughter can then move forward towards a valued direction in life.
