Does your son take part in any sport? All of my DS' went through periods like this, and all benefitted from taking up running/boxing, etc.

Yes he goes to the gym with a friend studying sports science.I've even had the talk about steroids,

Would you be able to afford to pay for some counselling privately? It currently costs around £40 an hour, I think.
