Teenage Anxiety Support

Dealing with Teenage Anxiety

Here at The Lucy Rayner Foundation, we are dedicated to supporting teenagers who are struggling with their mental health. Growing up is not always easy and many of us can relate to common challenges like peer pressure, bullying and low self-esteem. However, that does not mean any young person struggling with teenage anxiety or teenage depression should suffer in silence or feel embarrassed to ask for help.

We give young people a voice to express their emotions in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Our trained counsellors help teenagers understand the root causes of why they are feeling this way and give them tools to help them cope.

How to Help Teenage Anxiety

You might wonder how to help teenage anxiety and want to know what teenage anxiety symptoms look like. Quite often, mood swings and signs of withdrawal are chalked up as being down to hormones, but if you know the person well and their behaviour feels out of character then your concerns are perfectly valid.

Anxiety symptoms can be physical and emotional, common signs include:

Experiencing one or more of these symptoms doesn’t mean someone has an anxiety disorder. Yet if anything persists, it could be worth exploring what is going on with a licenced professional.

Teenage Depression

We stand with teenagers experiencing depression throughout the UK and in the Surrey area and encourage them to seek support whenever they feel overwhelmed. Feeling low from time to time is perfectly normal, but persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness need to be addressed.

Like all forms of mental illness, there is no definitive cause of depression. However, we do know that the risk of depression can increase in young people who are bullied, undergo major life changes, suffer low self-esteem, misuse drugs/alcohol and suffer problems at home. In other cases, it is simply a case of genetic disposition.

Whatever the cause, spotting the signs early means that support can be made available to get a young person’s life back on track again.

The Hummingbird Process

We are proud to endorse The Hummingbird Process. This is a  6-week programme for young people struggling with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Using mindfulness tools, including meditation and journalling, this programme helps individuals connect with themselves on a deeper level and challenge negative thought patterns.
