Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Robert employs the methods of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)—a relatively new, effective and rapidly growing field of psychotherapy.
His occupational therapy approach, applied to mental health, not only works on psychological processes, but encourages practical engagement in important daily activity to support and improve academic, emotional and social development.
Passionate about making a difference, Robert also invests time developing innovative and creative solutions, to both assist his clients and further this emerging ACT area of practice. He has developed an iPhone app (futureyouapp.com) to help his clients notice and effectively manage the impact of thoughts on valued living. Most recently he presented at the OT Mental Health Forum in Sydney.
The blend of Robert’s professional experience with his youthful outlook (he also has club DJ experience) allows him to uniquely connect with young people facing challenges. His satisfaction is in seeing the positive changes and achievements made by his young clients.
