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 15 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 19 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.

Family Skype Sessions and Family Home Intervention Service


I am now offering help and advice for families and young people via Skype.

I primarily use Skype with webcam as it is an effective, confidential and convenient alternative to you having to travel to meet with me.

  We can meet on Skype at any agreed time during the day (or your local time if you are abroad) evenings or weekends.


Many International and UK families take advantage of this service as it is easy, convenient and can fit into your lifestyle and busy day to day schedule.


The Skype sessions may work well for you if you are worried about any issues and wish to discuss your young person or any family issues and would prefer to do so with someone outside of your local community.

If you work away from home and your family and would like to talk to someone but are unable to commit to attending regular sessions.

Or that you, or your young person, have a disability which would make it difficult to get out and about and you require advice. 


I offer blocks of 2 x 50 minute sessions at £50.00 per session which are to be pre booked and paid for in advance via BACS (details of which will be provided once we agree to proceed).

In the first instance please email me at teenbratcampuk@yahoo.co.uk with your issues, problems, worries, concerns etc outlining the main points that you would like to discuss.
Once we have received your email we will then arrange a convenient time for you, your young person or the immediate family to begin the sessions.

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

Are you feeling challenged by your young person and are unsure of what to do next?

If so, the Family Home Intervention service may be of benefit to you.
