About me

Really pleased to meet you, my name is Rob.

If you are reading this, perhaps things may be difficult for you at the moment? Well, I hope to put you at ease a little. So, a wee bit about me, well, this is my 28th year of working with the area of health care. I must say, I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey so far, and feel lucky to have had such a rewarding career.

I have been providing therapy for 14 years when I first qualified as an Occupational Therapist (OT) in 2003. Often, I combine this holistic approach of OT to the 3 forms of psychotherapy I am formally trained in. Those being Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which the government describes as the gold standard treatment for anxiety and depression. Also providing Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) which can be used to treat and prevent further episodes of ill health, both mental and physical.

If you struggle a little with extremes of emotional discomfort, or find you are often in conflict with yourself or others then Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) can be very helpful. You can choose a specific therapy or mix and match them, what is often called integrative psychotherapy.
My approach to therapy is really flexible, I ensure it feels natural and fluid so it moves sensitively alongside you.

The above approaches are wonderful, but, they are not the absolute truth. I most certainly won't attempt to make you fit into any model or therapy method. Your uniqueness is the key, and this will remain central throughout the therapy process.
I am known for my problem solving abilities and will work hard (with your help of course) to either fix or make something as good as we can! Two minds are most certainly better than one.

Of course, being human I have my own life story. I have had two episodes of severe depression and struggled with anxiety in the past. I have first hand experience of grief and the pain it can bring. However, sessions will be about you, and your journey. You will remain at the very heart of everything I do. I generally provide short snippets of information, when appropriate, as I find it can help to normalise a situation.

I understand that accessing therapy can often be really daunting, I will do my very best to put you at ease. If you have any concerns or worries prior to making an appointment you can either text, ring or e-mail. It's really that simple.

Take Care, my very best wishes. Rob
