FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
“My progress in strength and flexibility, along with rehabilitation of old injuries and overall health has been remarkable under Richard's care. Unhesitatingly recommended.”
Paul Greet, Director
What’s involved in the Free initial consultation?
These are 15mins phone call or FaceTime to chat through your needs in person and make a plan for next best step.
What do the One-to-One Consultation consist of?
Typical sessions can be 45min - 60mins in which we will plan and discuss your overall concerns and questions, define your individual goals and what we need to work through. If movement is the focus of your needs, there will be a functional movement assessment to check on your overall movement patterns as all these are vital in shaping your programme and monitoring your progress.
Can you work across all ages and abilities?
Yes. I’m experienced in working with people with learning and movement disabilities, ranging from teenagers to young adults with varying conditions, including autoimmune or physical challenges. I’m also passionate about regaining children’s need to increase time outdoors moving, exploring and in nature to enable their optimal physical and neurological developmental capabilities. I have created a special programme that allows me to champion that in schools. You can read more about that here.
Where do we do the consultations?
Consultations can be on the phone or one-to-one if needed.
I’m based in Gulf Harbour, Whangaparaoa, but depending on what you need, consultations can also happen outdoors in nature - depending on what your needs are. I also travel to Auckland CBD for certain clients so personalised location options can be discussed.
Can I bring someone with me to the consultation?
Yes if you feel more comfortable doing that, you are welcome to bring a support person when needed.
How soon can I start?
Now. Soon as you get in touch and book in your initial consultation.
Can I purchase a One-to-One Consultation as a gift?
Yes - but consultations are best booked by the person committed to use them, as they must be comfortable, ready and willing to discuss openly what they need help with to address their personal needs.
What are your rates for other services?
For tailored events such as talks or workshops contact Rich directly to discuss.
Can I get a refund for unused sessions or packages not fully used?
No, unused sessions are non refundable but they are transferable. Exclusions apply if you're unable to use them due to a medical emergency - see Terms and Condition under Services and Prices.
Why would you choose me?
I’ve learnt not only from very personal experiences what can work and what doesn’t but I’ve also spent over a decade researching and training on specialist skills. Many of my clients come to me with goals spanning from health, fitness or wellbeing and some of them don’t know where to start or how to address what’s holding them back.
As a researcher I continue to learn more progressive understanding of our overall biological needs as new industry information is forever being released.
I’m also a “real” person. I don’t give advice on something I’ve not experienced. And I have experienced many of the issues that can plague our modern lives from high stress, overly busy, poor sleep, poor diet, injuries and more.
I can help you get the results you want, but only if you’re ready to make the commitment to change the things that need changing to get you there.
