BREAKING NEWS…..We are delighted to report a record year for new enquiries which confirms that we are helping and supporting many more broken families and troubled teenagers than ever before!!

We are the UK's leading independent provider of support and guidance to families, who seek increased knowledge and evidence of Therapeutic Wilderness Programmes, which are based in the USA, UK and also in Europe. In short, we help parents & families who are in crisis, due to the actions and issues affecting their "troubled teenagers" which in turn can impact adversely on wider family life.

Since 2007, we have worked with countless numbers of families (from all over the world) who have subsequently accessed professional support programmes, in order that prompt action could be taken, to address individual and complex challenges to (hopefully) then restore a semblance of normal family life.

We really have become the "last chance saloon" for families struggling to cope with teenage kids who have developed issues that are capable of tearing families apart. We work closely with only the very best programmes in the USA and the UK, where we are able to understand (and influence) the therapeutic input, which is so vital to achieve a potentially positive outcome. We visit and vet programmes and their owners and we really understand the "maze" that is out there which can be very confusing to the naked eye. We can separate the true professionals who really care about outcomes, from the programmes that are constantly chasing targets to appease the money men!

Historically, the most popular destination by far, has been to (tried and tested) USA based Therapeutic Wilderness Programmes, with a professional intervention and a structured programme, that helps provide an exceptional catalyst for radical change in the lives of troubled teenagers – who may be suffering from any number of complex issues, challenges or in some cases addictions. These programmes help bring about positive change to the lives of young people who may be struggling at home and who may be underachieving (or possibly excluded from) school. Whether it is behavioral problems such as low self-esteem, defiance of authority, depression, anger or drug/alcohol abuse, there is a structure and a mechanism in place, to provide the right level of help & support, that is so critically needed.

Wilderness is not the only answer, but it is the best starting point, especially for other programmes such as Therapeutic Boarding Schools and Residential Treatment Centres.

In the recent months, we have made great progress in the UK and you can read about our current activity at our UK/EU Activity page.

PLEASE NOTE – We do not have access to free or subsidised places on any of the programmes we promote or signpost you to. We only work with highly qualified and experienced professionals who run their own businesses on a commercial basis. Our core programmes based in the USA are expensive and they are only suitable for young people aged 14-18 years of age. We also have access to specialist Young Adult programmes and for younger children with challenging behavior please see our Equine Therapy page.
