“I am very pleased with my therapy sessions with Ashwood Therapy.  Rob made me move my focus from the past to the future in a way that has been incredibly powerful.  It was very easy and convenient to use the online app, it meant I could easily fit the therapy into my day without having to add transportation time.  I found the sessions just as good in this way as doing them in person.  I highly recommend Ashwood Therapy to anyone who is looking for help”

~ Claire Rintoul, Chief Executive | Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice

“I have attended bereavement counselling with Rob for a considerable length of time following the death of my baby son.  From day one of my numerous sessions with Rob I have felt at ease to talk freely, honestly and openly.  Trust and the strict adherence to confidentiality has been the key to this and I cannot emphasise enough how important it is and how impressed I am that Rob takes this aspect of his role so seriously.  Seeing someone regularly for a prolonged period inevitably involves some element of non-counselling interaction but a dividing line has always been present and this thoroughly professional approach has been paramount in order for me to be able to be aided by counselling.  And my word, have I been aided.


Words cannot express how grateful I am to Rob for helping me to come to terms with the tragic loss of my son.  What has struck me about the sessions, particularly following the first feedback session, has been just how attentive Rob has been in listening to me.  Actually listening.  Those 'review' appointments really struck me as being key to the whole process.  Hearing back what I'd said, what I'd revealed, and reflecting on those previous comments and the journey overall has been therapeutic and quite comforting.


Losing a child brings grief of a magnitude that is impossible to quantify and I will never be 'over it' and I never want to be.  My son is dead, but he is loved, remembered and cherished every day.  Thanks to Rob, his skills and professionalism, his dedication and his belief in the process, I find myself able to live with that all-consuming sense of loss.  It hasn't gone away and nor should it, but I can, and I will, live with it.  For that, I am, and I will be, forever grateful.  Thank you”

~ Client D

 “I honestly cannot find the words to describe how grateful I am to Rob for the help and support he has provided me over the last few months.  I found myself in a place I never thought I would be following the death of my 3 year old daughter last summer.  Rob helped me in ways I never knew possible and I can’t thank him enough.  Not only has he helped me but he has also helped my family and friends.  Rob is truly worth his weight in gold!”

I have no hesitation in recommending his services most highly and do so unreservedly.  Congratulations Rob on your strengths, your knowledge, and your attention to detail and professional preparation.  Those who find your services will be fortunate indeed”

“I found Rob to be a warm and empathetic therapist, who is always ready with an insightful anecdote to aid in personal discovery …  I found the online sessions to be highly practical.  As being an expat, I knew there would be no instances of being lost in translation and I could easily fit them into my working schedule.  I would highly recommend the services of Ashwood Therapy to others.”
