Who does Pyramid Psychology Support?
Areas of specialty
Anxiety, anger, fear, worry.
Helping older kids, teens, and young adults cope with anxiety, anger, fear, and worry. It may be showing up at school, work, in your relationship with others, in your sports, hobbies, or passions.
While focusing on how to help you understand how your feelings and actions are connected to your thoughts and previous experiences, we will support you to try new ideas and strategies that can help you face and overcome these challenges.
Adjustment and change.
Another area is adjustment and change . This can be adjustment to a "new normal" including school changes, cultural adjustment, and family changes.
Change can be tricky. It can be vulnerable and can feel like it's shining a light on those more tender spots of our mind and heart. Being able to express your thoughts and feelings related to adjustment and change as well as learning ways to manage overwhelming moments can make change a little easier to navigate.
As a young person struggling with self-esteem/self-worth, the day to day can feel like trudging through thick mud. Being in a space where it feels safe to express yourself can help you discover self-love and self-compassion. Having those opportunities can build your self-concept and lead you to feeling more like, "I've got this" and "I can do this". This may include further developing some of your social skills to help you feel more confident in relationships and in social situations that might be a little more awkward or nerve inducing.
Trauma and loss.
Trauma and loss weaves itself into everything in our world. Right down to the way our nervous system responds to experiences and situations. Whether it's trauma linked to having had to flee your home country as a refugee or trauma from overwhelming experiences of your past, there is hope to heal and live the life you want.
Creating safety is essential to trauma work. Therapy most likely includes your family system in some way, to help support that healing and build up your external resources. Focusing on meeting you where you are at in your journey with trauma, building internal and external resources and learning about how trauma impacts a person wholly is important work. Trauma processing is something that can be offered if that is one of the things you hope for as part of your therapy.
