How we support adolescents and parents?

The journey from child to adolescent is full of challenges. We support adolescents who struggle with various issues as they navigate their way to develop a unique and independent identity.


We facilitate student groups in their transition from Primary to Secondary School, Junior Cycle to Senior Cycle and also in the transition from the structure of school life to University and the world of work. We work with parents to support them in parenting their adolescent in these transitions and indeed in the many challenges that occur in family life.

Study Skills

We also work with young people to support them to reach their potential through study techniques and plans tailored to meet their individual needs.
