CORPORATE & WORKPLACE SERVICES LEAD

Dr. Robert Chandler

Distress, anxiety and adverse life events are all part of being human. Psychological intervention is about allowing people, families and teams to live fulfilled and meaningful lives, without being held down by distress, suffering, or by what has happened to them.

I have 15 years of experience working clinically in the UK, where I was born and educated. Following the completion of my doctoral training at the University of Bath (UK), I worked in a number of NHS and private sector settings. Throughout my career, I have worked with adults and young people with complex needs across the full spectrum of common mental health difficulties and neurodevelopmental disorders. In recent years, a good deal of my work has focused on working with adults from the corporate world, including work with high performing individuals and executives. I have extensive experience working with and providing consultation to organizations, as well as clinical leadership and research.

Life can be tough; for ourselves, our families and the wider systems around us. My role is to meet clients where they are; to work towards their goals, even if these goals might not seem initially clear. Evidence-based psychological science underpins all of my work; with individual clients, and also with teams and organizations. Clients can be assured of a contained, relaxed and nurturing environment.
