My 15 year old boy has been receiving support from counsellors/psychologists for anxiety and depression for 12 months now. He refuses to take on board any of their suggestions and says that nothing they suggest will work for him. When we try to discuss their suggestions he becomes angry and shuts down. He hasn't attended school regularly since the lockdowns. I am feeling frustrated because we don't seem to be getting anywhere and the counsellors say he doesn't give them much. I'm not sure how to move forward with him until he realises that he needs to do something different, we can't do it for him. Any suggestions on how to stop going around in circles????

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
