Counselling

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Robin is very calm. Very good listener. Good at getting you to understand what you are processing. I entered his office September 2015 and finished in September 2016 as I got so much out of his therapy sessions. I felt stronger, more confident and happier than I have in a very long time."

"Most importantly Robin is kind. He has a natural affinity with people and he clearly cares about what he does and his patients. Robin listens, supports and advises if appropriate and his guidance provided me with a solid sounding-board which allowed me to work through the things I needed to. Robin is well-read and experienced at what he does and to this he adds a human approach of kindness which allows you to feel very supported. I really felt that Robin cared about helping me and it was important to him that I felt better. I highly recommend Robin as somebody who is experienced and able to help you through things that you are finding challenging."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Understanding, non-judgmental, offers advice when needed. Also good to have a laugh with, a great sensitive therapist, who always offers helpful advice as well as asking questions that make you think about past experiences, but he will help you through all realisations you have."

Rating of Counselling for Relationship Problems:


Matthew, 65 from Surrey

23 July 2015

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"An intelligent man who was prepared to listen and interject only when he felt it was necessary. On the one or two occasions that we deviated from our principle discourse he recognised this, and we both acknowledged its irrelevance. He was particularly interested in R. Harris's 'The Happiness Trap' as a text for our sessions; which I found useful, if with some significant reservations that he accepted. My time with him confirmed my regret that my relationship with my mother was not as supportive as it might have been, and that my time at boarding school was damaging. He was especially acute in rejecting my self-diagnosis of a high-functioning Asperger's syndrome. His suggestion of an addictive personality (I am drinking cognac as I write this) is probably fair; though probably also manageable, considering my advanced age. All in all, a valuable experience."
