I was initially referred to Robin by my personal trainer because of a crippling knee and hip pain. As an individual who suffered with anxiety, I was extremely nervous to meet him but his approachable nature instantly eased my worries. He diagnosed me with tendinitis and a snapping hip and over the weeks as he treated my injuries, the pain eased off and I found myself able to do things I was previously unable to do. I believe Robin is truly one of a kind in his field; irrespective of my anxieties, he was able to make me feel safe and comfortable. He showed genuine concern and interest in me and my life. I opened up to him about my struggles with diabetes and anxiety. After this, he suggested I try Autogenic Training with him to see if this would help tame my anxiety and stabilise my diabetes. Because of my anxiety disorder, I have struggled to do everyday things like taking the tube, answering my phone when an unknown number rings, eating around other people and leaving my house. As I progressed through the autogenic training course, I found myself being able to cope with taking the tube, I was able to push myself in social situations, and I felt more comfortable when leaving my house. Autogenic training has helped me throw my anxiety in the backseat and as a result has stabilised my blood sugar levels, making diabetes easier to control. Robin has given me all of the tools and support to conquer my anxiety and for that I am forever grateful.
I have worked with Robin for over 15 years and his skill and dedication have been demonstrated countless times. I treat a lot of facial pain and TMD and I have found his holistic approach is of enormous benefit to my patients, those that see him can expect a smoother, faster recovery and better long term stability. He is an excellent diagnostician and his knowledge and approachability make him a valued member of my clinical team. As a dentist I am subject to major spinal strain and can also vouch for Robin’s superb support in keeping my body straight mobile and pain free.

I have suffered with sleeping problems for most of my adult life, however over the last few months these problems got so much worse that my life became almost unbearable. In the past I had tried various remedies- lavender pillows, herbal treatments, meditation (I am a qualified Bach Flower Essence practioner and exhausted all my supplies!!). Nothing worked for me!
Even prescribed sleeping pills didn’t have the desired effect. It was then that Robin (who I’d been seeing for a back problem) suggested that I try Autogenic Training.
After 7 sessions my sleep has improved dramatically!! I’m falling asleep much more quickly than I ever have done before and am sleeping for longer too.
Also, because its so quick and easy to do, I sometimes use it during the day at work when things get a bit hectic.
After all these years and the many, many things I have tried, I really didn’t think anything would help me, thanks to Robin and Autogenic Training I have been proved to be wrong– and that’s a first!!
