Robert is a clinical psychologist and researcher living and working out of sunny Sydney. From 2010-2017 Robert's work life consisted of supervising and lecturing on Clinical Psychology Masters programs (Western Sydney University; University of Technology) and running a small private practice. This practice has evolved into Schema Therapy Sydney the first schema therapy focused private practice to be established in Sydney. Rob has been affiliated with Schema Therapy Training Australia for the past 5 years and now regularly provides accredited schema trainings across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
Just this year Rob co-authored a new schema therapy book Contextual Schema Therapy along with Eckhard Roediger and Bruce Stevens (published by New Harbinger in June 2018). His central contribution to this work has been on integrating 3rd wave techniques (e.g. Mindfulness, Self-compassion, Values) to explicitly build the healthy adult mode in schema therapy.
Rob currently holds a senior research fellowship with Australian Catholic University where he currently engaged in clinical research focusing on extending the schema model into novel populations (e.g. GAD, Eating Disorders, HIV Sufferers, Problem Gamblers, Forensic Patients, and Psychosis),
