Robert convenes an extraordinary depth and richness of worlds: philosophy, psychology, business, government and even spirituality have their place; I see this reflected in the fascinating variety of clients drawn to his work, from business leaders and consultants to artists and therapists - each of them magnetised by Robert's synthesis and integration of the rational and the emotional, the everyday and the miraculous.
