I’m Rob. I’m a registered member of PACFA, and am a fully qualified counsellor. I’m originally from the UK and have been in Melbourne for the last 5 years. Further to my work as a counsellor, I work part-time as a languages teacher, at a secondary school here in Melbourne. My personal life experience of living with HIV, growing up gay, and of working extensively with young people and the LGBTQIA+ community have provided me with a deep understanding of the issues these communities can encounter. Our sessions will provide you with a non-judgemental, empathic and safe space to fully explore and learn about yourself.

I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Private Practice since 2011. My aim is to create spaces of trust for clients to explore the intricacy of their own lives, to identify the fullness and complexity of their experience, to come to terms with themselves, and to release behaviour which no longer serves them. My work is Humanistic, Person Centred and Emotion Focused, and I use the integrative approaches of my training as entry points for us to language, feel, and honour, all that we carry deeply within us.

I work at the level of attending to generational and collective forces and how they shape individual experiences and psychology across the lifespan. I am highly sensitive to systemic and structural injustices and collective dynamics that exist within our culture. I often work with creative and contentious Millennial adults who seek meaningful development of their identity, purpose, and resilience in a challenging and constrained system. Our discussions together form a collaborative container for you to access past, present, and future experiences, with the aim of supporting you to flourish in the ways you desire.

Being a therapist is my calling. I am passionate about what I do. I have always loved listening to others’ stories and soon became fervent about exploring man’s behavior and responses to unexpected events. I have lived both in ease and chaos; and have learnt to explore my thoughts in different environments. In music, ceramic, in painting or in writing, I explore my own layers of self and reform my outer with every self-encounter. I believe we human are simple in our best, but to communicate we are far more complex. I have a deep interest in art and philosophy as it make us think deeper and see the reality from different angels.

Life can be hard, uncertain and confusing, and yet there is an expectation that we inherently know how to live and relate well. This is a fallacy. The realms of the personal are complex, made even more complex when two or more lives come together in relationship. Guidance, mentorship, support and education are necessary elements to navigating the vicissitudes of life and relationship. I therefore guide my clients (individuals, couples and other relationships) through a unique exploratory process of understanding, discovery and growth.

Therapy can have profound benefits and can lead to lasting change, but it only works when you are ready, and feel trusting of your therapist. For my part, I seek to provide a warm, non-judgemental space for you to explore and experience whatever is most needed at the time—a supportive and curious approach that allows for rich and meaningful relational and inner-world development. If you have been feeling stuck in a cycle, overwhelmed, are experiencing grief or loss, want to make a change or cultivate your strengths, I will work collaboratively with you to enable your growth.

My aim is to establish a warm and trusting relationship where you can feel supported, gain new insight, solve problems, alleviate symptoms, and develop your self confidence and sense of purpose. I take an integrative approach tailored to your needs; effective therapeutic interventions are identified collaboratively, and may include talking therapy, experiential approaches, art therapy, walk & talk therapy, etc. I believe real therapeutic change takes time and can offer longer term psychotherapy options to suit your needs and budget.

People come to see me for a lot of different reasons. For instance, you might be experiencing depression or anxiety, having relationship difficulties (whether you're single or partnered), going through a major life transition or loss, or wondering about the overall direction of your life. You may have a sense that there's something more to life -- that you could be living a richer life, and thriving more than you are right now. I'm here to support you and examine what's working and not, whether you're seeking a major transformation, or simply a deeper understanding of your life patterns.

Are you under pressure to be a provider, a protector, a high-performer? Whether you’re at work, being a parent or in your relationships, you must always be at the top of your game? Even for the best, for the strongest, for the most dedicated - this pressure can be overwhelming. And when you encounter something you could have easily conquered in the past, the overwhelm can make obstacles suddenly seem insurmountable. But as the saying goes "Where there's a will, there's a way". You may not know how to get there, but you have the will. I guide you back on the path to the way.

In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging and growth of confidence in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Abbotsford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Abbotsford specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
