Why Psychology?

In the 1990’s Richard formally commenced a career in psychology and learned to understand, practice and critique various forms of psychological therapy. Richard believes in the importance of being an eclectic and adaptable therapist in order to understand treat a variety of problems. Richard has spent many years coming to understand how one’s life is shaped by their past, but not limited by it. From his own experience and through extensive training, Richard learned how to recognise and build on one’s own unique strengths, how to forgive and move on, and how to foster positive unconditional self-regard for oneself and others. This is an ongoing learning journey.

Why Life Coaching?

A potential concern that Richard perceived with some counselling approaches was a lack of vision, direction, and structure. After completing his formal studies in psychology, Richard remained interested in providing a more fulfilling, helpful and solution-focused practice to the general public. Richard had always aimed to combine the best of evidence-based psychology therapy with evidence-based positive psychology and life coaching approaches. As part of this journey, Richard spent many years overseas gaining a fuller understanding of how different people understand and find happiness and fulfillment across cultures.
