Robin Hyslop, M.A.
Hey! I’m Robin.
I love coming alongside broken people, as a broken person myself, and forming real relationships that can start to foster trust and hope. Seeing people be able to recognize their worth, regain identity, and change their life in positive ways is amazing and gives my life purpose.
I have lived in many different places and experienced many different cultures and people during my life as my family moved around the world for my Dad’s job. I pursued nursing as my initial career because I love anatomy but also because I wanted to help people. I am now called into counseling, and am thrilled to serve as a post-graduate intern here at Wellspring.
I have always loved to talk to people and hear their stories. I have a heart for the tortured soul,
the outcast, the loner, the afflicted, the shunned. As a nurse I have taken care of so many different people, met their families, and been present in some of the hardest times in their lives. I have seen people fight disease, mental illness, and trauma. I have seen miracles, sorrow, and death. The body
(including the brain) has an amazing capacity to heal, and sometimes people need to be helped and guided by a compassionate, loving hand, through the process. Mental health and physical health go hand in hand.
- Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
- Ambassador at Face and Voices of Recovery (FAVOR) of Greenville
- Registered Nurse
- B.S. in Nursing from Clemson University
I have 20 years’ experience as a critical care nurse. I worked in Medical, Surgical, Neuro-Trauma, and Cardiac Intensive care for 16 years before leaving the hospital in order to have a better schedule for my kids. I also worked part time as a Home Hospice nurse and currently work part time at Upstate Cardiology. This work lends itself to people opening-up about their lives which are complicated and messy. It has been a great bridge from medicine to mental health. I’ve met people from all walks of life, and I love how the body works.
I offer counseling to children, teens and adults facing anxiety, depression or other difficult experiences. Serving healthcare professionals who experience high stress and burnout is also a passion of mine. Further, I have had my own past, personal experience with addiction, and have a real soft spot for people who are trudging the road of recovery.
In my personal time I hang out with my three amazing children and my husband whom I love dearly. We laugh and enjoy just being together watching movies, eating, and talking about life. My family loves to spend time at Lake Keowee, swimming, fishing, and riding on the boat with Gramma and Papa. I love to read (I’ll read ANYTHING!) in my free time. I also love to study the Bible and participate in Bible Study Fellowship. I love Jesus, whose grace saved me from myself, and has shown me God’s faithfulness over and over. I live for His glory and to serve all people including believers and non-believers.
