ABOUT ME

I now also offer a Family Home Intervention Service in the Uk and internationally.

Teencamps-UK was started in 2008 by myself and my wife to engage young people to explore their real selves away from their home environment and I personally run and facilitate every camp and service on offer. One to one camps in Spain are run by myself and my wife (who is also trained in Counselling skills).

My wife and I have previously been approved Foster Carers for 8-16 year olds.


I have a current enhanced DBS check and am fully insured.

 

I have an MA, B A Hons Degree in Social Sciences and Humanities and a level 5 Diploma in Counselling.


I specialise in working with teens  who have bereavement and loss issues, those who have experienced trauma in childhood ,addictions and behaviour issues. I am an Integrative Practitioner which means I blend different methods of counselling skills and therapeutic work according to the individual young persons needs.



I am an experienced Counsellor specialising in working with young people.

I have spent 13 years as an experienced Mediator with young people and families. 

I have been a Mental Health Advocate in Mental Health, a Director of Mental Health Counselling and also a Mental Health

Counsellor for teens and adults.


I have over 18 years experience of working with hard to engage teenagers as a Mentor, Mediator, Life Skills Worker and Counsellor.


I believe that my own life experiences are just as important as my professional and academic training in relating to young people as I am Dyslexic and left school at age 15 without any qualifications and was also classed as a "troubled teen". 

From years of experience I have learned that when parents change, their teens around them change, too.


I am a dedicated professional who provides the highest level of service, discretion and professionalism at all times.
