Rob is a registered Psychologist and a member of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. He is particularly interested in childhood and adolescent mental health, and is passionate about:

  1. The effective management of stress, as this often contributes significantly to many mental health problems
  2. Positive psychology and learning to thrive and enjoy life in addition to preventing and dealing with life’s difficulties
  3. General health and exercise as an important part of not only physical health but also mental health

“I am particularly interested in working with young people, as I feel that early intervention and instruction in building coping strategies and gaining a good psycho-education can make a significant difference in strengthening resilience and helping to prevent future mental health issues.”



Rob has attended various workshops over the years, including:

  1. Frustration and Anger Management
  2. Child and Adolescent Behaviour Management
  3. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  4. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  5. Stress Management and Self-care
  6. Cognitive Testing (WAIS/WISC)

I am passionate about providing perspective, and practical, effective strategies to children and families that will assist in improving their overall well-being and preventing future issues.
