Programmes to help teens in the UK and Australia.
Welcome to Teenbratcampuk and thank you for taking the time to look at my website.
In striving to reduce the carbon footprint I do not produce printed brochures. All information needed can be found on this website so please feel free to print off any information required.
It is important to note that I do not associate your teen with being a "Brat" but I have found (during research) that most parents will find my website by using that particular word.
There are no "brats" or "bad kids" on my programmes. I help teens, young adults and their caring families who are struggling.
Teens on my programme could best be described as "good teens who are making bad decisions".
Teenbratcampuk is especially helpful to troubled teens who may struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioural issues.
Please note that Teenbratcampuk programme is NOT an adventure camp, or any other kind of activity camp.
I run a 7, 14, 21 or 28 day outdoor programme for teens aged 13-17 and young adults in the UK and Australia which can be applied for online.
As we know, teens/ young adults do not come with an instruction manual which can be used to refer to from time to time and at times of challenging behaviour.
All teens and young adults who attend my programme are placed here directly by their Parents/Guardians and not by any third parties as I do not utilise any external funding sources.
I started Teenbratcampuk after indentifing a lack of specialist help and support for teens, parents and families in the UK. My expertise is in helping teenagers and young adults with life skills coaching, mentoring and mediation and I have over 14 years of experience. I have a compassionate approach and ability to provide workable solutions to real life problems. I am firm but fair and use a combination of empathy with a straight talking approach. Although there is a minimum 7 day stay, some young people have stayed longer, (averaging 14 days), depending on how they responded to the programme.
Getting specialist help for families, parents and teenagers/young adults in the UK is often a frustrating and emotionally draining endeavor. Very few parents have any idea of where, when, and how to get appropriate help for their teen. The problems may include; adoption, fostered, family breakdowns/disputes, relationships, trouble at school/college, loss and bereavement, depression, anger issues, self-harming, bullying, addictions, behavioural disorders, ADHD/ADD, OCD and trauma.
I will work with your young person in helping them to recognise the long-term value of their experiences here on my troubled teen programme and by looking at the reasons for their behaviour and how they can make changes.
I am a Teen Behavioural Counsellor/ Consultant specialising in working with teenagers (including those with ADHD/ADD) and their families with behavioural and emotional issues on our innovative forward thinking programme, which are all tailored to the needs of each individual young person. Every teen is viewed as a unique individual with specific needs and I am with your teen 24 hours a day while they attend the programme, from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave.
I help teens and their families who are willing to accept help in dealing with the issues at home in a more positive and constuctive way. I work with teens out of their normal environments and out of their comfort zones. All my programmes are run in North Wales where your teen will have time to look at themselves and reflect on their behaviour and start to learn from it. I use a flexible and creative approach which can develop trust and enable a willingness to discuss problems and issues.
I strive to let teens learn as much as possible from the consequences of their actions as I feel that a lesson learned through hands-on experience is far more valuable than compliance with a rule established by an authority figure. I know that teenagers can be heavily influenced by their peers in both positive and negative ways so therefore I only have small numbers ranging from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 4 on any programme.
Why should my teen attend your programme?
Teenbratcampuk's therapeautic programme is the 1st step in helping to find a new way to manage your teen. Teens can feel vulnerable and daunted by the thought of attending a programme, however, attending a programme should not be seen as a punishment but rather as an opportunity for them to be away from everything for a short period and to work with someone who is there to listen, support and (if needed) to challenge them in order to help them with their behaviour. This will enable them to deal with the things that are causing their problems in a more positive and constructive way so that both they and their family can move forward.
How would I get my teen to attend your programme?
Nearly all families who enquire about my programme have concerns on how to get their teen to attend.
I haven't yet met a young person who actually wanted to attend and looked forward to going. However, I would advise that you ask your teen how much their family means to them and what would they be willing to do to try to make things better. if they answer "I'll do anything" or "I'm not sure or don't know" then you can take the opportunity to explain to them that you would like them to attend for both of your benefit, to be able to move forward in the future.
**Young people must view TEENBRATCAMPUK as an opportunity and be willing to attend, engage and fully participate in the programme**.
From experience in doing pervious programmes we have found that the food we provide (basic, high carbohydrate/ low fat/ low sugar) gives slow energy release and this has a benefit for young people as their blood sugars remain constant over long periods of time.
86% of families and young people say that attending our programme has been a very positive experience.
