Thank -You for visiting my website. My name is Richard, I am a father of three inspiring adult children and a grandad of five gorgeous grandchildren whom I am nuts about. They are really an extension of my children.
If You are a Dad like myself and your children have grown up, married and have their own children, you will identify what joy they bring into our lives and still continue to do so through their children.
Thirty-five years ago there were hardly any Forums about Dads or Dad Support Groups on Facebook or other social media. Today we have all the information we need at the click of a button.
Raising a family has been by far the most challenging years of my life. Every waking moment I spent with my children and seeing them grow into flourishing and successful adults makes me feel so privileged to have them.
My wife was and Is! still my rock and we look forward to many more happy years together. My children have flown the nest, giving me more time to pursue goals I have been wanting to achieve for years.
My hobbies are many, I love to travel, politics, personal development. I love cooking with a passion – before I invite my friends to dinner, I always ask them if they have a life insurance policy, as I don’t take responsibility for my cooking.
I taught my sons to cook as they should be pro-active in married life. I am a keen fan of meditation, my wife and I attend a gym and I feel terrific.
I am an Accredited Coach with The Coaching Academy U.K. I am a Senior Coach and Support Coach for Noble -Manhattan Personal and Corporate Development. I also trained in Career Guidance for adults, with a background in Human Rights in London.
I am confident in motivating people towards achieving their goals and believe that no dream is impossible. I worked extensively with long-term unemployed clients in London, especially fifties plus. My coaching skills and training made such a difference to their self-esteem and self-worth.
I did voluntary work at the Homestead, a shelter for homeless teenagers in Cape Town in 2002. I focused on their Self-Esteem Issues and Confidence Building. I have no intention of slowing down.
In 2014 I graduated with a B.A. Arts Degree in Sociology, Political Science / German at Nuig Galway. This was the most memorable four years of my life.
I did a pro bono weekly coaching workshop for students with time management issues, needless to say, they managed to hand in their essays on time. I have no intention of retiring and can’t is a word I never use in my vocabulary.
I am always up for a challenge. I joined Wealthy Affiliate and thanks to their expert training I am learning how to design my own website. Learning new things is a must and all skills are learnable
