We both believe and have witnessed the effectiveness of counselling and also think that it is a part of a well-lived life. Therefore, our passion is people—whole, healthy people—armed with healthy resilience to overcome difficulties, who find pleasure in their strength and accomplishments and to foster life-giving relationships.
The word “core” speaks to the depths of a person: those deep-dwelling parts that feel, hope, dream, aspire, and hold values. Often, when our core is injured or hurt, we react instinctively by guarding ourselves—in part or in full—from others, even our closest companions. At Core Counselling, we long to help you care for and uncover this deeply personal self.
Why? Regardless of our best efforts and intention, we are stuck in depression, anxiety, procrastination, or addiction. Counselling discovers more of who we are and why we do the thing we do. It is in those moment when we begin to understand ourselves better that permanent change can happen.
"Robin worked very hard to make the group the safe environment that it became. He is friendly encouraging and facilitating. It was a pleasure to work with him."
"He created safety in me from the get-go, and that remained throughout the days. He was great support, compassionate and understanding, and really open for exploring different view and softly correcting/guiding towards the AEDP approach."
"Robin was my assistant and he excelled in all aspects. Kind, sensitive, knowledgeable, available, approachable. I will write personally to Dina and Karen to let them know he is an enormous asset to AEDP, both as practitioner and as teacher."
"Robin Huppman was excellent as an assistant. He has a special warmth and genuineness that made us feel very safe. I've learned a lot from him. He lifted the good things in us."
