Janet Seddon - HR Director at Datel Computing Ltd.
I would recommend Richard to any employer looking to get the very best from their graduates and give them the tools to lay solid foundations for a bright future. We wanted to give our new graduate recruits specialist support to encourage & guide their development as they took the first steps in their career. Richard has certainly been able to do this, helping four very different individuals meet their established objectives
Dave Powderly - CAFC Youth Academy Coach & Secondary School Teacher:
Richard has the fantastic ability to understand each individual's concerns and is therefore able to help a diverse range of players. He helps anyone that may be struggling with the usual external challenges, but is also able to push the best performers to even higher levels
Rachel Haskew - Senior Lecturer,Sports Therapy - The University of Hertfordshire
Richard was extremely professional, enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with. He prepared and delivered a lecture and practical on the psychology of sports injuries and rehabilitation for a group of 2nd year Sports Therapy students. Our students found the sessions insightful and it got them thinking about how their approach and actions can affect the athletes. They were able to visualize sport specific situations more clearly and learn how to deal with them more effectively

When trying to work through tough decisions, don’t you want someone who's had the right experiences first hand?
Experiences that you wish you'd already had and could use to inform your decisions?
"Why Do I Need a Coach/Mentor?"
This was a question posed to me recently - and in short, you don't necessarily need a Coach or Mentor, but everything gets a lot easier when you have one!
- I can push you that little bit more when you feel like you have no options left
- I know what you’re good at and what you find challenging
- I can help you to create a structured path to your own desired success
- I will help to point you in the right direction of resources that may help
In short, I will get to know you, and I will have the specific knowledge and expertise in the rights areas to help you to succeed!
