About Me

My name is Damon Bachegalup BA (Hons), Dip (Couns). I am the founder and head counsellor at Teencamps-UK.

I am a teenage behavioural consultant and I have worked with young people and their families for over 24 years. I use a mixture of therapeutic approaches, my own life skills, mentoring and mediation skills to identity what will work best for the teenager as I truly believe that one size does not fit all. After identifying a lack of specialist help and support for teens, parents and families, in the UK and internationally, I started Teencamps-UK in 2008.

Turning Teen lives Around.

As we know, unfortunately, teens/ young adults do not come with an in-depth instruction manual which can be used to refer to from time to time and at times of challenging behaviour. Our young people could best be described as "good children who are making bad decisions and choices".

Teencamps-UK is especially helpful to troubled teens who may struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioural issues and disorders including ADHD/ ADD, ODD, aggression, violence and trauma, narcissistic behaviours and anger issues.

We have helped young people with mental health issues, eating disorders, drug issues, alcohol issues, addictions (including Social Media, Online Porn and Online Gaming).

Adoption issues, being fostered, family breakdowns/ disputes, relationships, trouble at school/ college.

Loss and bereavement, depression, self-harming, LGB, gender dysphoria, coming to terms with sexuality, social isolation, suicidal thoughts, bullying and computer misuse issues.

I have an up to date Child Protection Policy and we hold a Safeguarding Children Certificate 2022, Family Mediation Certificate Level 4, Mental Health Awareness Certificate 2020, Life Coaching Diploma 2020, Suicide Awareness Training 2023 and Mindfulness Diploma 2020.
