Welcome to my site, I’m so glad you’re here!

You know, life is short and every moment you spend waiting for it to get better, is a moment lost forever…

However, in life we don’t just get second chances,

We get a new chance every second! Take the chance…

When moving into a new position in your career there can be extreme uncertainty around what the right decision is or if you will have what it takes to fill that new position effectively. 

  • Are you feeling stuck in a job or career that is sucking the life out of you?
  • Or overwhelmed and uncertain about your ability to take on a new challenge?
  • Do you want to make a great impression in your new role but don’t know where to start?
  • Would you rather die than keep living the life you’ve been living?

I’ll help you realign with what truly matters and regain purpose & freedom by rediscovering the inspiration & meaning that feeds your soul.

I’ve created a program that will guide you to the authentic purpose you were born for. 

Learn how to:

  • Get clear on what it is you were meant to do in this life.
  • Access the super power you never knew you had.
  • Take full control of your life and relationships.
  • Get deeper fulfillment, inspiration, and confidence in ALL areas of life.

    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 ??

    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.

    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!

    Richard is one of the most amazing, inspiring people and have worked with him for years as my coach.. I have many issues that come up from my past that I have to deal with... Richard was a key to my new life, to my new way of looking at my future to changing my own thoughts and taking charge.... he is always there for me to brain storm and put me back on track it is so inspiring.. I have changed my life and thought around. I could have never done it without Richard and his guidance. I highly recommend his coaching course. If you are brave enough to change for the better I highly recommend contacting Richard..

    It is not often that you meets someone that instantly make you want to open up and talk. Richard listens intensly, then listen again and has this ability to reach out to you and go straight to the core of your discomfort and shine the light on your "hiden" strenghs. In light of what he has done for me, a very strong recommendation is an understatement.

    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!! #MindOverMatte #RobbenIsland #FearConquering

    There is dark deep black hole that exists in the mind, created by the narrative of past limiting beliefs, taught to us by us, as a method of self preservation. Richard taught me to go deeper — inside— and provided me tools on HOW to do so. These tools saved my life. I came to find gratitude for my heart beating inside of me — I took it for granted up to the point of our meeting. I was in a black hole. Our work was designed for me to help navigate me into light, my own light. I have no doubt that if you are searching, and you are here then Richard is your confirmation that you are going to be okay, even better actually. You are going to be more magical than before, because Richard will help unveil the layers of protection you once needed and he will help allow your inner YOU shine through. Highly recommend.

    I’ve been working with Richard for a little over 2 months now and continue to do so. From the very first session, I have noticed a positive change in my mindset as a result of his wisdom and engagement level. I feel more centered and balanced with his guidance and approach to life, interpersonal relationships and mindset. I’m able to see an improvement not just in my mindset but in my relationship as well. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to take sessions with him. I can’t recommend him enough.

    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 ?

Four foundations of an empowered life


Come to see and understand what’s most important to you, and why, and choose the direction of your life accordingly.


Discover how surprisingly simple it is to have a better relationship with most people while making it great with those closest


Unlock your hidden potential by understanding who you are through the needs that are driving your behaviours


Gain clarity on what stops you from moving in the direction you wish to go and learn how to break through those barriers

While our challenges often seem complex and insurmountable, the foundation of most challenges are simple and can thus be transcended with relatively straightforward strategies and actions. 

1:1 Coaching

How do coaching conversations take place?

I work one on one with my clients online via Google Meet.

How long are the sessions?

Sessions typically last 60 minutes but can on occasion extend slightly past that if we are still busy with a process or at a pivotal point that requires more time to round off an insight.

How many sessions will be needed to work through a specific area?

Depending on the specific challenge, I recommend a minimum of 4 sessions to ensure lasting transformation in a particular area of life.
