Coaching Approaches & Methods
My approach goes straight to the heart of any issue which is deeply rooted in how all humans meet their needs. I guide my clients to understand what drives their behaviour and explore more sustainable ways of meeting their needs which ultimately leads to deeper fulfilment in their lives. I use all kinds of strategies to help shift my clients into a more resourceful perspective and empowered state from which to approach their challenges.
I help my clients transform limiting beliefs and resolve inner conflicts towards greater inner alignment which empowers them to achieve their personal, relationship and career goals.

I had 8 great sessions with Richard and he helped me to work out my goals based on my strengths and in the process he helped me realize how much potential i had. By talking about concepts such as Listening, Gratitude, Needs, Certainty, Confidence, Clarity, Purpose e.t.c he helped me understand my working environment better. Richard is an amazing life coach, he is very confident and professional and he truly helped me to move my life forward. We started off as strangers and learned a lot from each other in the process.

I approached Richard about 2 months before I attempted my first Robben Island Crossing. I needed help conquering my fear of Sharks and my very vivid imagination. The session was an intense one focusing on debunking myths, focusing on realist, goal setting and spirituality! Thank you Richard for helping me reach my goal 90% Fear Free!! #MindOverMatter #RobbenIsland #FearConquering
You showed up and acknowledged me. You encouraged me and championed me when I was uncertain of who I had become. Working with you has helped me liberate life in a way that I thought was foreign to me but you re-ignited and transformed me. You reminded me that I am one resilient and powerful person and I have a purpose to be here. Thank you for your kindness, for your time, for your light. Thank you for the adventures that we shared while I explored myself and learned who I was again. You exist to benefit so many living beings and I thank you for seeking your purpose which has now led me to redefine mine. My life is infinitely more brighter having met you and I look forward to continuing the work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This modern ever changing world is confusing at best, so to sit down and find the right coach to guide you through the mind fields of business, technology, lifestyle and love is a blessing. Richard has experienced a lot first hand so done it all and overcome his own mountains, creating the powerhouse of guidance we all need to wipe away the fog we all have and blinds us, so you can see the beauty and life that we aspire to fully enjoy! I’ve tried a few different coaches and Richard stands out as the leader of the pack!
My sessions with Richard were like having a weekly catch up with an uplifting best friend who makes your life better! He helped me simplify my over-analysis of my life into simple knowings and actions. Throughout all of this, I didn't ever feel that he was in charge of my process of change - he helped me recognize that this was all coming from within me. He was just the mirror.
Richard has been helping me for a while now and I have nothing but praise for him. He helped me climb up out of a dark place in my life and back on the track to success. I highly reccomend working with him.
Thank you Richard for the empowering Coaching Sessions that I had and for your time! I was able to step out of my comfort zone and finally take the steps that were needed to grow my business and actually start believing in the quality of all the things that I worked for so hard. I truly understood that me trying to be perfect and manage everything in a perfect way was holding me back quite a lot. Now I feel much more confident about myself and learned to appreciate all the skills that I have to offer. Thank you! I value you as a Coach a lot and look forward to continue to grow with you.
I always look forward to my conversations with Richard. He is able to strike a unique balance of careful listening with sharing his wealth of experience and ideas. Our coaching sessions are filled with inspiration, support and guidance. Since we began working together, almost a year ago, we have built an incredible relationship which is evolving with each session. His unique sense of interest in my life and his insights and direction are always on target. He has been a vital resource to me and I look forward to our continuing relationship, as an exceptionally valued friend and absolutely amazing professional coach. Richard has an enormous heart and he is one of the rare people who make this world a better place just by being in it..
