Robert Rees, Director The Grove
Robert is a Director of The Grove.
I work with individuals and with groups in organisations.
My experience ranges from working with people in a mental health setting to work in commercial organisations as a development consultant and business coach. I have worked in the NHS, the charity sector and in both large and small commercial organisations.
As a psychotherapist I have helped clients with a range of issues including: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, work issues, communication, addiction, self-harm, relationship and marital problems, trauma, bereavement, suicidal thoughts and life issues arising from their parenting experience. I use evidence based clinical approaches like CBT in my practice as well as creative techniques like visualisations, art work, sound, breathing and mindfulness.
As a performance coach and consultant in Organisational Development I have worked with senior managers and executive teams to help them deliver on their career and organizational goals. I adapt psychological and therapeutic models to facilitate growth in an organization. I support and advise companies in developing organizational strategy, helping them to recognize and nurture their talent more fully and work with them through organizational challenges.
I am an accomplished business person who has experience in setting up, running and selling businesses. I specialize in working with fast moving, financial firms like hedge funds and trading companies having spent 20 years in the commodities trading industry. My aim is to help people and teams build resilience, optimize their performance and their communication within teams and to help to strike the balance between being and achieving within a firm.
I am also at the end of a final year of a 5-year Professional training for a Post Graduate Diploma in Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapy leading to UKCP accreditation.
