About Bob

You will find a therapist possessing an excellent reputation and professional background.

Bob Brotchie - Counsellor

I demonstrate how I understand!

Importantly – and without the ‘guff’, you will recognise the lived experience I understand AND that I really am able to empathise with so many of the challenges clients present with, I can most often ‘see’ through their eyes, and so, may feel what they feel. Most prefer this knowledge compared to the sometimes ‘cold’ academic, lacking ‘real-life’ exposure!

Furthermore, you will find I engage – and I’m very proactive! No long uncomfortable silences here! I will ‘drive’ meetings if required until you are in a position of knowledge, trust and comfort to do so.

Training and Awards

 

Having re-trained, my earlier professional background involves almost two decades serving as an award-winning senior emergency paramedic, and innovator.

Much of a paramedic’s emergency work involves being with those suffering chronic and acute psychological and psychiatric events! As an honoured profession I was privileged to bear witness and assist in the happiest – and the most traumatic of times. These have provided me with a wonderful insight for those I will meet today.
