Rob has a wealth of experience, helping people in diverse settings from home to High Secure.
After completing psychiatric training Rob trained extensively in the theory and practice of ACT and specialised in its application in psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy. He is a Clinical Senior Lecture in Psychiatry at the University of Queensland and trains psychologists, doctors and others in ACT as well as providing ACT based psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy to his clients.
New treatment innovations usually take decades to make it into practice. Rob closely follows developments in psychology, psychiatry, and psychopharmacology, and brings this knowledge to his work well before many other psychiatrists. His expertise is using the newest evidence-based treatments for all psychological problems and in the optimal role of pharmacotherapy based on a sound, critical approach to science. Rob’s work is rigorously informed by independent science and is carefully based on what has been shown to work in research studies.
