View her recent TedX talk here: Richard Thorpe is the Managing Director of Transition Coaching. After a 13 year career playing Premiership & International Rugby, Richard made the decision to retire from professional sport and step into his property investment company full time. However, 18 months later he found himself struggling to get out of bed in the morning. He had pulled away from his friends and family, and despite everything in his life going well, he felt hopeless. But this was familiar territory for Richard. Having faced challenges earlier in his life, coupled with his studies in psychotherapy and psychology, he was able to recognise that he was struggling with his identity, purpose, and values. During this period, Richard reshaped his life, and built a new business that would empower others facing life’s inevitable challenges to identify their purpose & values, build resilience, and reach their potential. This business was Transition Coaching. Visit for more information: www.transitioncoach.org AGENDA:* Registration (Tea/Coffee/Pastries served) 9.30am - 10.00am SESSION 1 with Dr Samineh I.
