We at the Toronto Counselling Centre for Teens are passionate about teens. We love their energy, promise and ingenuity. The teenage years can be confusing, vulnerable and sometimes even volatile. We feel that it is an incredible honour to help a teen navigate those years, heal, grow, shift perspectives and shift relationships.
We believe that our work with teens is strategic: an investment in teens is an investment in the overall well-being of our communities. Successful counselling with teens gives each young person the opportunity to live the rest of their life released from significant internal struggle. Equipping youth to be healthy and hopeful friends, leaders, colleagues, partners and parents in their future adult life is our mission. We believe (and research indicates) that investment in this work, now, benefits the individual teen both now and in the future, as they grow into adulthood and participation in their own families and community contexts.
