With over 20 years experience, Robin Lockhart is a seasoned professional in the youth and community work, Therapeutic Coaching, Mentoring and Human Development, Personal Growth and Change industry.
Over the years he has received numerous international awards and accolades for his work; most recently, Robin was voted 2016 Global Youth Worker of the Year by the Commonwealth, and collected his award from Baroness Scotland (The Secretary General of The Commonwealth) at Marlborough House.
Robin stated that he felt “honoured and privileged to receive such a prestigious award and to be delivering projects and programmes with young people. I realise how privileged I am to be doing what I love for a living and although I don’t do this work for awards, it is wonderful to have my work acknowledged and recognised at this level.”
These recent achievements have led to Robin being interviewed and featured by international radio and press.
Robin doesn’t only work with young people; rather, he specialises in supporting people to truly understand where their emotions come from:
“Many of us suffer challenges and problems in life because we don’t appreciate that our emotions are not things that we ‘have’ or ‘are’, but are actually something that we ‘do’. Our emotions are a result of the sum total of our thinking from moment to moment and we are not obliged to feel the same in one moment as we are in the very next moment”
“ We are in a time when we need more unity.
Communality and respect for others runs through all youth work.”
"Robin may not be labeled as a therapist or a councilor, however, for me I know the conversations we have had have been 1000x more helpful then those I would have had with someone else. Rather than us focusing on everything negative and the reasons I initially came to see Robin, we talk about thoughts and the meanings behind feelings, which helps me to understand the simplicity in solving my ‘problem’. The conversations I had with Robin gave me the confidence to understand that the only person who can change the way I feel or the only person who can make me feel a certain emotion (say anxiety) is me, which was a massive reassurance in that I would be able to stop being so anxious and worried for no reason. Not only was the change quick for me, but it was noticeable from Robin and my friends and family and it was a positive change which impacted the rest of my life. It is not a chore it is enjoyable and the conversations provide me with a constant sense of security that I’m ok and always have been, there was never anything wrong. Robin guided me in learning that there is no purpose in focusing on the past or future and the only way to live and change things is to focus and live in the now. This helped me to stop worrying about what might happen and have anxieties about past experiences and live much more focused on what I can achieve in the moment."
"My company was stuck in a rut; we were losing money and our team morale was at an all time low (with many staff worried that they were about to lose their jobs). We brought Robin in to work with the team on a 1 to 1 basis as well as to run some team workshops. The turnaround was totally amazing! It felt a bit like magic had happened...We then went on to have our best ever year of trading!"
"We hired Robin to work with our most troubled pupils and have witnessed the way he works... He enables everyone to learn for themselves that they can make the required changes to live the lives they want in a way that feels right. There is such a great atmosphere in the room when Robin works in the school, he makes it all so simple and such fun!"
"I met Robin after being unemployed for many years. I had suffered a severe violent attack that made me lose all my confidence. Robin fixed me! He would say that I fixed myself, but it was him who enabled me to do it! I will never look back again"
"When I first met Robin, I had heard rumors about how his approach transforms lives really fast, but to say I was skeptical was an understatement. After spending the first hour in his company, I had an insight that I am still benefitting from (and will continue to benefit from for the rest of my life) over a year later! He told me that I was 100% OK and that all of my challenges and problems were related to the way I saw myself / the thinking I had about who I was... we spoke for around 2 hours and I will never be the same again - I can't thank you enough Robin."
"When I was sent to see Robin, it was pretty much a last resort... my family had tried everything else and had run out of money trying to help me to stop using (Drugs) and to stop committing crime to pay for them. I spent 3 days in Robin's RESOLVE Intensive Programme and my whole world changed! It was like everything suddenly came in to focus and in an instant, life made sense again!"
"I had experienced relationship difficulties most of my adult life - ranging from domestic violence to drug / alcohol misuse and infidelity... after one session with Robin, I realised the vital role of my thinking in both creating the problems and also in making them go away. I will always be grateful for this."
"Robin managed to help me work through some issues I had been struggling with for many years... I had tried loads of different methods and techniques and spent so much money on different therapists and counsellors that I was ready to give up living... Robin helped me to rapidly transform the way I thought about my issues and without any problem, my issues simply disappeared!"
"Robin Lockhart was not just a mentor / coach to me, but a friend I could rely on for helping me in times of need. Robin has opened doors for me in my career, as well as helped me come through rough times. I¹ve learned a lot from Robin about the importance of valuing myself, my thinking and my health and how this paves the way for a more successful future. Thank You Robin!"
"Robin Lockhart's Company (Catalyst In Communities) is a truly amazing social enterprise which has helped to turn around many peoples' lives from many different backgrounds through their life changing courses. I myself have done their courses over the years and they have improved my life and made me think differently about the world. The learning I got from Robin is easy for me to apply in my daily life.."
"Robin Lockhart has an amazing amount of understanding and knowledge and provides the support necessary for people to change their lives."
"I met Robin in prison. Within 5 minutes of talking with him, I got more than I've got from 25 years of seeing psychiatrists, councillors and other therapists. He has true insight and was able to help me shift my thinking and behaviour to a far better place. I'm a better person for knowing you Robin. I am eternally grateful. Thank you."
"I spent years attending programmes to try to better myself that never worked...After working with Robin Lockhart, I realised that he has such a lot of knowledge to give and the courses he offers are so unique and the best thing is that they actually work. Great Stuff!"
