JOHN HAS A PERSONAL MISSION TO.
Empower people to be leaders of their own lives, responsible for their own wellbeing and equipped to overcome their self-imposed limitations driven by unconscious core beliefs.
With over 30 years’ experience working with people across a broad spectrum of areas including addictions, mental health, disabilities, counselling, coaching, teaching, and training, John has developed deep understanding of the human condition. John believes communication is the essence to connecting with people and that trust is the ground that all relationships are built on. He has a unique ability to connect and create a safe space for people, so they are unencumbered in expressing their deepest concerns.
John’s real-life lived experiences, coupled with his academic and professional training, make him especially adept at working with individuals and families with trauma histories. He can skilfully assist clients to clearly define their presenting problem and collaboratively assist in providing a practical solution through The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP).
As a qualified practitioner of TRTP, John has helped clients overcome the self-sabotaging impact of life distressing events. Through his own lived experience and personal results from TRTP he has developed a solid understanding of the process and is able to create a safe space for others to triumph over their own traumatic experiences.
