He is now devoted to making meaningful life-changing guidance available to all, through his uniquely transformative events, workshops and retreats. Richi is a mentor to wellness professionals, an ambassador for social entrepreneurism, founder of LifeWell UK, and creator of The Wellbeing Now Experience and The Heart Soul & Science Seminar.
Bigger Bio: Richi uncovered empowering tools for self-healing during his childhood adversity with debilitating illness, and discovered a mental approach to life which allowed him to overcome his difficult circumstances. His academic journey studying Philosophy, Psychology and Buddhism was cut short by his poor physical health, but life provided a different kind of education and opportunity for enlightenment.
By his late twenties Richi had already climbed a ‘life mountain’ using integrative lifestyle approaches to help his body go beyond it’s life-time of chronic health conditions, as well as overcoming severe anxiety and suicidal depression. But his greatest challenge was yet to follow as his wife descended into very severe mental illness after giving birth to their daughter. Through the years of intense challenge Richi needed to delve deeper into his own self-mastery in order to help care for his wife, remain free of the abuse directed at him and raise his daughter to be as healthy as possible despite the turbulent environment she was born into.
Committing himself to learning the nature of his wife’s mental and emotional struggles Richi uncovered deeper insight into developmental psychology, perception, and the nature of our emotional challenges; why it is we struggle and how we can become emotionally and psychologically free. Developing an effective approach to leveraging positive change, he was able to help his wife make an incredible recovery and find a far deeper sense of freedom and wellbeing than she had known before.
Today Richi is devoted to helping others transform their lives and to discover the freedom that he has experienced rising from within the most unlikely circumstances. To reach out further than he could with his guidance work alone he founded LifeWell UK to help facilitate that intention. He is a mentor to wellness professionals and leaders around the world, a powerful public speaker and a leader in the UK’s holistic entrepreneur community.
