Richard has had a profound impact on my personal and professional life.

Through his work, I’ve gained a deeper, more meaningful understanding of my personality and how to leverage its idiosyncrasies to become better in a professional and personal setting. The tools he has helped me develop have made a huge difference in how I approach difficult situations and navigate uncertainty in my day-to-day life.

I highly recommend his work.

I had the privilege of working with Richard to overcome some limiting beliefs I had. His patience, kindness, and expertise were truly remarkable. Richard not only helped me conquer these obstacles but also skillfully aligned me with the priorities that are most important in my life. I am immensely grateful for his guidance and highly recommend him to anyone seeking personal growth and transformation.

I first reached out to Richard with the goal of continuing my professional development working in the tech sector, and he has been a breath of fresh air. He really listens and is able to articulate things in a way that I sometimes struggle to. With him, every conversation will give you something to smile or laugh about. Having started completely fresh in a new industry, he’s been instrumental in helping me change my patterns of negative self-talk with his insights and practical strategies, which is something I have been finding challenging within my professional life.

Over the course of the last six months, I’ve had the privilege of engaging in regular sessions with Richard, and I wholeheartedly recommend him for anyone looking to unlock their potential and start moving forward in their careers.

Business Development Executive, GridBeyond

Richard is my own personal life advisor, a seneschal or a member of my own personal board of directors, if you will. I’m grateful for every opportunity to speak with him because the content and flow of our conversation is so effortless. His knowledge of the human mind’s limitless capacity for change, awareness, and learning is demonstrated by the scope of philosophies he studies, the questions he poses, and thought he provokes. Richard is exceptional.

The breadth of material he’s read and speaks about with complete fluidity, familiarity, and immediate recall at a moment’s notice is awe inspiring. He’s learned many of life’s hardest lessons and mastered them by living through the storm in accordance with the messages he imparts, and now he’s made it a purpose-filled part of his path to educate and bring clarity to others so they too may experience a life filled with joy, serenity, freedom from mental clutter, and happiness while eliminating suffering and pain simultaneously.

He’s helped and supported my journey …so far…in the following ways – in no particular order:
– How to ask myself the right questions; which leads to the right answers
– Identify and order my core values
– Identify my personal strengths and weaknesses; many of which are also strengths
– How to focus my inner lens and embrace my shadow
– Develop my personal mission statement; leading to greater awareness of my life’s purpose
– Realize that I am a special human and I’m the only human who is me and I am worthy and enough.
– Embrace and welcome & fear and uncertainty
– How to create certainty and overcome fear
– Nothing is certain until it is
– Identify love when it is given to me; I can now say “I feel loved when…”; which is extremely empowering
– How to take my power back from fear and past trauma

Richard has assisted me in accomplishing this in less than 2 months. These results speak loudly and are directly attributable to Richard’s skill and talent as a coach and mentor.

Richard is an expert guide and steward that anyone would be privileged to have accompany them along their own personal journey. His eternal encouragement, consummate enthusiasm, and consistent uplifting approach is an absolute breath of fresh air. I sincerely look forward to every one of our sessions to learn strategies for personal growth and engage in dialogue that is deeply healing, profound, and positively inspiring.

My message to future patrons of Richard’s is: Step right up and unlock your own self-limiting beliefs, find your own voice, discover mental clarity, and learn what you don’t know about yourself; you’ll be glad you did.

Richard is very professional and knowledgeable. He is patient with me and provided a lot of insights that helped me grow as a person, which I desperately needed. I came across him on task human, and just thought I would give it a try. I am really glad I found him. He is like the teacher that I never had. It was easy to open up to him, and he really listened to what I have to say and provided his honest thoughts on the issues. I am very grateful I found Richard and would recommend him if you need an experienced coach to guide you through your life transitions.

I discovered Richard’s coaching skills at the start of this year; unhappy with myself, feeling stuck in a rut in many ways and unmotivated – I decided to give coaching a go. I was quite apprehensive having not done anything like it before but Richard immediately put me at ease.

Following a few sessions I can honestly say Richard’s coaching has helped changed my life, and hugely exceeded my own expectations. I’m finding a level of calm confidence yet high motivation which is already proving beneficial for my health and my career. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Adrian Winfield

Head of Reporting & Data Management, Phi Partners

I had the pleasure of working with Richard and he made a profound impact on my life. I came to Richard feeling lost, with no direction and a lack of motivation. However, after just a few sessions with Richard, I was able to look at life from a different angle and realize that I had the potential to do things I never thought possible.

Richard helped me overcome the dark clouds that were overwhelming me, by showing me how to identify the root cause of my problems and find solutions that worked for me. His approach is insightful and supportive, and he is always available to listen to my concerns. He never judged me and always encouraged me to pursue my dreams and aspirations.

One of the things that impressed me the most about Richard was his ability to make me feel comfortable, and his genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. He has a unique combination of empathy, knowledge and experience that allows him to connect with his clients on a deep level.

I am grateful for Richard’s help, and I have no doubt that he would be an asset to anyone looking to improve their life. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone seeking a life coach who is dedicated, knowledgeable, and genuinely invested in the well-being of his clients.

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.

Richard is incredibly insightful and compassionate at the same time. He really got to know what was going on in my life. He gave me a way to see my life with a new perspective that had me get unstuck and move forward in areas of life I was struggling with. I have been around many coaches and he is in the top 5% of them all. Give him a call before you commit to anyone else.

Harvey Pacht

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Independent Coach & Therapist

I first approached Richard with some personal crisis and since then he has become my go-to for all things for 2 reasons – one, he is straight as an arrow and directly sees through and addresses the root issue with empathy without deviating or hitting around the bushes; secondly, Richard does not make a call for you, helps you to make one – often times comforting you to pick the right thing you already know, but unwilling or scared to pursue. He helps you see the larger picture beyond our individual needs and perceptions. Richard also has an innate sense of how to make his clients feel empowered without judgement,and replete with empathy and care. Richard & I have worked together on multiple occassions and each time was a success. I cannot recommend Richard enough.

    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.

    Richard Van Der Spuy is a life coach with Get Rich Inside. I have known Richard for a good 15 years and i strongly recommend his services! - After 3 sessions i have already felt a connection with my hidden inner potential , and i have started to enquire about what means most to me.

    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 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 have changed my life and thought around. I could have never done it without Richard and his guidance. I highly recommend his coaching course.

    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 ?

    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.

    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!

Four foundations of an empowered life

Purpose

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

Relationships

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

Authenticity

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

Growth

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.
