What Is Life Coaching?

Life can be challenging on many levels and often one is in a situation that appears to have limited available options. Working with me as your coach I can help you discover the resourcefulness within yourself, that reveals more options based on a more fulfilling outcome that you desire with lasting results. My style of coaching recognizes that success in any area of life is determined by your mindset. Our sessions are focused on equipping you with the insights you need along with guiding you to realize your power and transform your inner world to ignite within you the drive to move towards a more fulfilling and inspired life.

Do You Need Coaching?

  • Are you motivated to improve your life but you feel stuck?
  • Is uncertainty stopping you from taking necessary action in your life?
  • Do you know what you want to do but struggling with procrastination?
  • Do you feel like the options you have are too limited?
  • Have you struggled with addiction and trying to reclaim your true self?
  • Are you feeling lost and uncertain?

I help my clients build the foundation for a deeper, insightful understanding of what drives them and I guide them to bring their focus into alignment with their goals from an elevated level of intention.  This empowers them to rediscover their true value and purpose and how to take control of their lives in a meaningful and lasting way.

About Me

I currently serve clients from various walks of life, some of my clients are working out how to go to the next level in their business or career and others have been at rock bottom on almost every level including their work life, relationships and health and discovered that life can be much more fulfilling than they had come to believe.

I coach clients mainly via Skype calls but I also do some special sessions where I take my clients into the local mountains in Hermanus for long intensive sessions that are deeply liberating and reinvigorating. I love working with any kind of person from any walk of life as I believe there’s nothing that is insoluble once you’re armed with the right insights and tools.

My previous work background is quite varied, I have worked in hospitality, insurance, I.T. and been a partner in three businesses, involving product imports, online selling and online marketing.

In my early life I took a few “wrong” turns but I always knew, deep within, that if life could be harsh and dark much of the time then the opposite experience must also be possible. And that’s exactly what I discovered which is one part of what drives me to help others get the same experience.

I have ultimately learnt and believe wholeheartedly that no matter how hard life is or has been, if you really, really want something better for yourself and those closest to you, you CAN live it!

 I completed my coach training at Robbins-Madanes Training under my teachers Tony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark Peysha, and Magali Peysha.


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..

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.

Richard, #SMFU will always be my mental hoo-rah when I think of our time together. Your light has been so incredible to share in as you explored the mountains with me these past weeks. I have no doubt meeting you was pure alignment and reward for having done something good at one point in my life.

You showed up and acknowledge 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 #SMFU 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.
