As a British Army officer, Richard used to make his living preparing and leading men and women for combat and peacekeeping operations around the world. Now, he coaches, educates and supports people to remove the mental obstacles that stand between them and success. He works online or in person as well as in natural settings.
Richard is a PTSD "outliver" and uses the insight and knowledge he gained from personal experience to teach other therapists and to guide personal clients back to wellness.
A "mad keen" hiker, bushwalker and tramper, Richard has completed several long-distance wilderness walks, most recently down the length of New Zealand. He is a firm believer in the restorative, awe-inspiring and creative power of nature and now guides people through a process of "forest bathing" (shinrin yoku).
