    biography.

    Rob works under the medicine name, Zephyr (aka, Gentle Breeze). He (re)discovered the spirit of peaceful anarchy in 1992 and a decade later, enjoyed the rare experience of training with Aboriginal elders in the Australian bush. Rob went on to study at Eagles Wing College of Contemporary Shamanism (2009-2011) and the College of Sound Healing (2011-2012), before embarking on a vision quest, or solitary fast, in the mountains of Snowdonia. More recently, he grounded his approach through a study of breathwork & body awareness with the Avalon Institute of Rebirthing (2014-2018). He is also a student of the mysteries under the A.’.A.’. (ongoing).

    fact.
    Rob wrote this in third person because he wanted it to sound fancy. He thinks it does sound fancy.

    Always the dreamer, Rob was diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood. This shed new light on his foibles, offering a scientific explanation for his unique ability to hyperfocus. A search for integration propelled Rob into the Amazon jungle, where, under the watch of local shamans, he took part in a 10-day diet with the visionary plant medicine, Ayahuasca. Three days later, Rob found himself stuck on a mountainside with severe salt depletion and altitude sickness. Pushed to his emotional, mental and physical limits, Rob experienced a wake up call that in the life of the universe, we’re only here for a flash. He feels the planet is in crisis and now, more than ever, is the time to face fears, find purpose and get flashing!

    Rob is a proud feminist and trans ally, but doesn’t want a medal for either. He tames the rat race with a dedicated ashtanga yoga practice and recently ditched the corporate ladder to provide support to victims of violent crime & high profile, major incidents across London. A music geek to the extreme and child of the rave generation, Rob brings sound to his art with his love of the gong. He also danced on stage with Grace Jones (twice, but who’s counting?) and is a member of London’s Lucky Cloud Sound System collective.

    Rob is available for one-to-one treatments in a cozy, North London practitioner space. He also runs regular group sessions including retreats and corporate/festival workshops.

      “I’m passionate about authenticity and (re)connecting people with their unique sense of power.

      Shamanic practitioner…sound therapist…breathworker…healer…workshop leader; I’ll answer to any of these, but fancy tools, techniques and modalities are unimportant. The key to a successful and rewarding client session lies in present moment awareness and the quality of space that’s being held.

      Life isn’t a new age bubble of hearts, flowers and happy-clappy disco re-edits. It’s the entire gamut of emotions and the secret is embracing flow, not attaching to states. Diving into the shadows can be fun too!

      My freelance therapy gig combines sacred instruments (drums, gongs, tuning forks, rattles), the power of imagination (or inner-mage) and conscious breathing techniques to encourage clients to run wild in the journey space and find context within an ancient map of the cosmos, known as the medicine wheel.

      Testimonials

      meet fred.

      fact.
      Fred is a sound therapist too. He purrs with a consistent pattern and frequency between 25 and 150 Hertz. Sound frequencies in this range improve bone density and promote healing.

      I live with a tiny panther. We wanted to name him Dracula to boost our goth credentials – instead we got a Fred.

      Fred’s a friendly little man and I’m his full time slave. I’m happy he came. He’s currently hanging out in the kitchen tapping his paws to Worldwide FM.

      friday feline wisdom.
      Fred has a flair for tarot and offers free readings every Friday on Instagram at #fridaytarotcat.

      He says, “You should pop over to North London for some sound therapy.”

      Actually, that’s a lie. He didn’t say this. I’m just projecting my marketing strategy onto a cat.

      Fred also likes crunchy biscuits. He did say this – but he probably shouldn’t have, because it’s unethical to solicit gifts from clients. 

      Bad Fred.
