Why we do what we do.

The Director of Pheniks Division in his own words:


I have spent the last 23 years of my life serving in the British Army. During my service I have been responsible for delivering both mental and physical training to front line infantry units. This is something that I have enjoyed massively, not only during postings to training establishments such as The Infantry Training Centre, Catterick and The Infantry Battle School, Brecon but also when preparing myself and soldiers for operations all over the world. Training has been a vital part of my adult life both in my own education and in allowing me the privilege of being able to pass on my knowledge and experience to both soldiers and officers alike.


I am currently on my resettlement leave from the army having decided to retire after 23 years and I am currently in the process of converting my military qualifications into civilian qualifications.


I have started my own company, Pheniks Division Limited. Pheniks Division will be providing mental health and well being support by way of mentoring, teaching and training. Our target audience will be young people between the ages of 14 and 18, but not limited to. Our aim is to provide alternative provision of education to young offenders, under privileged children / young people and Pupil Referral Units [PRU's]. Pheniks Division, through our collaboration with local company Whysup, have already provided services for a number of schools and a local grass roots football team and as of September we are ready to assist in the return to school after lock-down as many of these young people have lost their way.


I feel my knowledge of mental resilience and the life skills that I have acquired growing up and in the military will provide some of these children, if not all, help and escape from whatever trauma or pressures that they are experiencing and that is why we do what we do.
