Robin has always been interested in how people have a great capacity for change. When he first saw one of Diana Fosha's videos, he immediately connected to the relational and transformative aspect of AEDP. For the last five years, Robin has been assisting in promoting workshops and communicating with AEDP members.
In 2013, he started his private practice at Core Counselling, which services the Fraser Valley. Last year, Robin was asked to develop a program for the Abbotsford School District that assists students with anxiety and depression. The program uses AEDP principals to process painful experiences with students, while directing them towards transformative experiences with both adults and peers. He espouses to create a community of support that engages, parents, educators, and outside agencies in an environment of care that can address a variety of issues such as self-harm, panic attacks, body image issues, and attachment wounds. Almost by accident, he discovered how enjoyable it is to work with teenagers. In part, is it the challenge that adolescents provide for him as they are developing their sense of self during an period of intense transformation in our fast paced and digitalized society.
In his spare time he enjoys time on his farm, surrounded by friends and animals. Though, not necessarily all of them together in one room. He is also in the process of writing a book about his experiences in developing a therapeutic program for teenagers
