“Our Son is 14 with ASD and Anxiety. Our son has been having sessions now for months with Robert and they have form an absolutely fantastic relationship. He loves meeting Robert in his therapy room and using the sensory lighting to suit his mood. He like chilling and chatting on the massive bean bags, and often I have trouble getting him to leave after the sessions. He often goes into therapy in bad mood but always comes out happy. I cannot recommend Robert enough, he has helped our son so much”.
