Rob offers Mindset/ACT Coaching. ACT stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and together with positive psychology skills he supports individuals both with and without ADHD who struggle with challenges such as overwhelm, burnout, confidence, perfectionism and imposter syndrome. This approach allows the individual to build skills to relate differently with difficult thoughts, feelings and emotions, attend to the present moment rather than getting lost in thoughts or living on 'autopilot' and move towards values-based action.
ACT aims to create a rich, full and meaningful life and at the same time accepting the pain that life inevitably brings. It can help make it easier to be 'human' and become less stuck in the negative self judgement and 'not-good-enough story' that so often becomes our 'truth'.
Rob has a wealth of past experience working in mental health services and created a specialism in Adult ADHD. He worked as a doctor in the NHS for 20 years, and as a consultant since 2008. He also worked in community, acute day hospital and prison mental health settings for several years.
