Robin was a psychotherapist, and a man of prayer. He worked in private practice for nearly 40 years, and held roles as supervisor at the St Marylebone Healing and Counselling Centre, facilitator of the Reflecting group for hospital chaplains at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary, and consultant psychotherapist to Holy Redeemer in London and St Thomas’ in Blackpool. He ran marriage preparation and marriage enrichment groups for the Baptist church, and a bereavement group for Layton Methodist Church.
Robin trained in counselling at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation, and in psychotherapy at the Lincoln Clinic. Robin was deeply immersed in the Christian contemplative tradition, and was something of an urban hermit until he married Katherine in 2006, who has brought his last two books to publication posthumously.
