Hi, I'm Robyn and I am a client-centred Instructor, Counsellor, Arts Therapist, and Communicator. I am an accredited instructor in both Standard Mental Health First Aid and Mental Health First Aid - Older Persons. I also run some short courses, 4 hours in length, such as Gambling Help, Suicidal Persons and Non-Suicidal Self Harm.
I also run a 90 minute seminar on Mental Health First Aid for Leaders.
I love to not only be inspired by others, but also to inspire others to embrace this wonderful life. To assist you to connect with self, spirit and others to lead a joyful, happy existence.
Just some of my most recent testimonials from Mental Health First Aid:
"Very friendly and engaging. I liked the fact that Robyn Rottinger made the course interactive rather than just a PowerPoint presentation.
“Friendly and very approachable would recommend the instructor to anyone wishing to complete MHFA.”
“Robyn is wonderful. She is very accommodating and she knows the content of the course very well."
"Spoke well and clearly with friendliness. Acknowledged cultural attributes that a different for elderly individuals from different cultural backgrounds and specific problems. e.g. trauma, pt"
"The videos of individual experiences with mental health assisted greatly in my understanding of what it’s like for other people with mental health concerns. One exercise that impressed me very much was Robyn’s suggestion that we note what the participants in the video on psychosis said about their early warning signs. Overall, I was very happy with the course content as well as its presentation. In particular, I thought Robyn guided us gently through this course. Thank you Robyn!"
