The Work

Imagine an approach to healing and well-being that integrates the psychological, somatic, emotional, social, and spiritual with exceptional effectiveness and efficiency.


Also imagine that this approach does not rely upon nor operate from any preset methodology, but rather allows structure and direction to spontaneously arise in fitting accord with our real needs, whether in individual, couple, or group contexts.


And imagine that this approach works deeply and thoroughly with all our emotions, going to the heart of each, recognizing that emotion connects body and mind, past and present, intention and action, containment and expression, biology and biography.


Imagine also that this approach works with the very foundations of our shadow — that dimension of us holding whatever in us we’re keeping in the dark, including our not-yet-faced conditioning — illuminating it and integrating it with the rest of our being.


And imagine that this approach operates in a deeply relational context that’s rooted in cultivating intimacy not only with others but also with all that constitutes us.


“Robert directs the intense, heart opened, full force of his being toward each of us in the group in every moment. His enormously intuitive laser reaches deep into where we are really at and what we need to heal at the most profound levels, and he goes for it with a gentle encouraging ferocity. At all times I feel truly and deeply seen and encouraged to go deeper into my wounds so that they can be healed in such a profoundly loving way.

“This work has given me the deepest healing of my hurts and wounds that I have ever experienced (and I have done almost all types of psychological work over the last 25 years), which has then almost automatically stirred in me a far more fuller expression of my true nature, with more inner freedom, joy, and a richer life than I could ever have imagined.”

(Julie Hart, Psychologist, Australia)

In my way of working, our dragons — our most challenging areas of darkness — are seen not as obstructions on our path, but rather as part of our path, to be encountered and known from the deep inside, so that we are rendered far more capable of appreciating and making wise use of the treasure they are guarding.

My Approach Includes:

  • Exploring and integrating the physical, mental, sexual, emotional, spiritual, and social
  • Allowing the psychological and spiritual to function as one naturally unfolding process
  • Breakthrough shadow work (our shadow being whatever in us we are disowning or otherwise keeping in the dark)
  • Emotional literacy and opening (making wise use of all of our emotions)
  • Intuitive somatic and trauma work (done in moment-to-moment connection with our personal history and current choices; embodying a life as vital, grounded, and relationally deep as it is spiritually open)
  • Dream exploration (using dreams as portals for transformative insight, healing, and awakening)
  • Relational healing and awakening (using whatever arises in relationship to generate a deeper intimacy)

My way of working is body-including, spiritually grounded, emotionally vital, psychologically savvy, intuitively-rooted. Such work transports us from fragmentation to wholeness, from frozen yesterday to fluidly alive now, from being at war internally to making compassionately present space for all that we are. This brings all of our dimensions together in a well-functioning whole that requires no diminishing or overriding of individual differences.
