Rob is an integrative child and adolescent psychotherapist who has worked therapeutically with children, young people and parents since 2017.
Rob’s approach is to meet the child or young person at their point of need, and to learn about their world. His goal is to accompany them in their therapeutic journey by creating an environment where they may feel safe to explore difficult thoughts and feelings at their own pace and rhythm. He works creatively with elements of play including sand-tray, image and object making, movement and drama to help a child or young person make sense of their challenges and adversities.
He strongly believes that working in this way, with patience, presence, curiosity and care, can foster enduring healing - and transform a client's perception of themselves, their significant relationships and the world around them.
He works with children and young people who experience a range of issues including developmental trauma, depression, low mood and anxiety, self-harm, neurodiversity, teenage pregnancy, eating disorders, social exclusion, and questioning gender and identity.
Rob also offers parents a reflective space to think about their child or adolescent. The duration of the work may be short or long-term and is dependent on the needs of the child or young person and the family. He works with the network around the child or young person when required, including teachers, GP’s and other mental health professionals.
In addition to his work at The Therapeutic Consultants, Rob provides one to one therapy, consultancy and reflective space for teachers and parents in schools. Rob has also worked in a local authority service supporting young people transition from care to independent living, and in an NHS community perinatal mental health team working with mothers and babies.
