I have had the pleasure of working with Brock for the last several years. He has a warm and genuine approach helping people who are experiencing some of the most difficult events in life; such as terrorism, sexual and physical assault, occupational trauma, childhood trauma and loss. I know that with excellence Brock helps people to make sense of stressful and traumatic events and how they are impacting on emotions and behaviours. I have seen Brock work collaboratively with his clients to relieve suffering and support them to make changes that improve their quality of life. Brock is a well-respected clinical psychologist who many professionals draw on for clinical advice. I highly recommended him.
