About Robin

  • Robin’s favourite movie line: It’s a tie between: Monty Python’s The Holy Grail—“It’s got teefff” and Snatch—“No thank you, Turkish. I’m sweet enough.”
  • Robin’s favourite YEG palate pleaser: Madison’s Grill and Vintage Room
  • Robin’s favourite quote: “People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” His Holiness The Dalai Lama
  • Trivia: Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia is the scientific term for “ice-cream headache”.
  • To activate your parasympathetic nervous system (or if you just need help chillin’) try this: Relaxation Response Video Exercise: Meditate with Peg Baim, MS, NP
  • Gordon Neufeld is the guru on attachment parenting. Check out his blog.
  • Impress your friends and family with random stories about the wild and crazy things that brains can do. Norman Doidge’s blog and books will give you plenty of material.

Life experience and genetics work together to form the structure of the brain and brain processes. The thoughts you have about your experiences guides your interactions throughout all facets of life. Here are the tricky parts: 1) you don’t always know which thoughts are influencing your behaviours and, 2) even if you did know (wait for it…), you’d likely do the same damn thing over again anyways!

You’re thinking WTF, right? Breathe. Here’s the good part, there are ways to minimize and overcome the unhelpful thoughts (limiting beliefs) and address those behaviours that you do over and over again and, as an added bonus, it doesn’t involve a frontal lobotomy. Utilizing the Shift Protocol, a unique and effective semi-structured approach blending elements from two well-researched approaches: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Robin can help you cultivate well-being. Your thoughts and behavior will begin to work for you and your kick-ass awesomeness will shine that much brighter—just sayin’.

Out of the office, you’ll find Robin reeling in monster King salmon at the Hakai Pass, hiking death-defying mountain trails, golfing at dawn, strapping on snowshoes, or reading a super good book.
