See below testimonials on Rob's supervision and consultancy services

"I am an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) and Best Interest Assessor (BIA) in the Cornwall DoLS Team. Rob has been my mental health supervisor for approximately four years. As I have no other direct mental health supervision his input has been invaluable to myself and my colleagues in the DoLS team, particularly during all the recent changes relating the changes in the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) case law.

Rob’s greatest strengths lie in his depth of knowledge of the Mental Health Act, the Mental Capacity Act/DoLS legislation, as well as all associated issues relating to the Human Rights Act. He is always up-to-date with recent case law and changes in relevant legislation. His group supervision sessions are lively and engaging with all materials promptly provided via email. His 1:1 supervision sessions provide me with the opportunity to reflect on case work and receive guidance on any complicated aspect of MHA or DoLS assessments I have been involved with. His guidance is clear and he is always positive and encouraging.

I consider that the most valuable aspect of being supervised by Rob is his availability. Rob has always expressed his willingness to be contacted at any time by phone or email. On one occasion he answered a text when en route to New Zealand! This sums up his willingness to ensure that I, and my colleagues, benefit from his many years’ experience and expertise in the field of mental health. His availability and accessibility mean that I/we continue to be well-informed and kept up-to-date with current legislation and therefore properly equipped to effectively carry out the role of AMHP/BIA in Cornwall."
