Working with young people

Together with friends, families and communities

Hello and welcome

I’ve worked with young people for around 35 years, not always, but usually with those having a hard time of life. And I work with these young people in all the places you’d expect to find them; and I also work with the families, friends, carers and important others in the lives of these young people. Because I’ve been doing this for a while now, I also train and mentor workers. And I’ve written a bunch of books and resources, in both the e and ‘real’ worlds.

I never really understand what ‘Life/work balance’ means. I simply have a life; and it’s a life filled with people I love; the things I enjoy doing, and my work with young people. This ‘work’ I consider to be a privilege, and there is nothing I would rather do. I’m in the right place. You’re welcome to look here if you would like to know more, or just email me. I’d be happy to hear from you. Go well.
