About Me

(LesleysPhotography) (0411233522)-1(20).jpeg
Hi, I‘m Richard, owner, and sole practitioner at Live Well HQ.
In my work as a mental health social worker and therapist, I get the chance to empower and support people to live their best lives and I want to share this with you, I feel like I have the best job in the world.
With the qualifications and experience I bring; I also have the passion and life experience to really connect with people in their moments of pain and struggle. Through my own challenges with work, relationships, and health I realise life can be hard, but I have also learnt that there are effective ways to work through those difficult times.
I feel that through those life experiences have helped me to be able to really sit with clients on their own journey. When a client says to me, they feel depressed or anxious I know what that feels like because I have been there. But I have also learnt resilience in being able to get up again.
So why choose me as a therapist? I work with people from a holistic perspective, looking at mind, body, and spirit. 
I appreciate the connection between someone’s physical and mental health and how one cannot be treated without the other.
I get asked all the time who is my ideal client, and the answer is all clients.
All clients offer an opportunity for empowerment and transformation in their lives, and all are seeking kindness, empathy, and a safe space to share their journey. I love seeing clients taking a positive step forward in their own lives with support.
One of the most common things I see with client work is low self-worth and self-esteem. For me as a therapist, there is no greater joy than to go on that journey with a client where in the beginning they go from having no confidence in themselves in their lives to feeling good about who they are and not being afraid to take risks in everything they do.
I really encourage and challenge you today to take that first step in finding a life of purpose and meaning and not just surviving whatever you are going through. Don’t be put off the chance to be that person that you were meant to be and living the best version of you.
Life is challenging and difficult but there is hope and I would love to take that journey with you.
