    This can happen while riding in vehicles, or being anywhere near traffic

  • FEELING UNSAFE
    Altering driving habits, maintaining extra space between vehicles, and a lack of confidence

What Our Clients Say

  • My experience with Robert was very good. I was in a car accident and was having some rather heavy anxiety attacks after while driving. I found Robert to be very professional, empathetic and friendly And I felt very comfortable talking with him about my fears. We were having face to face sessions as well as with FaceTime when my work schedule was not allowing me to meet up. I learnt how to control and understand my anxieties. Robert was teaching me techniques that I could use by myself when I was feeling anxious.

  • I started seeing Rob about my anxiety and trauma after a car accident 2 years ago and we delved into other personal issues as well. He's always been very compassionate and patient, he's helped me through a lot and has given me other resources to use in my daily life outside of our counselling sessions. Rob is a great counsellor and he's really knowledgeable about mental illness, addiction, complex trauma, and much more.
