How to develop mental toughness as LIFE HAPPENS, so that you’re better able to cope and enhance your personal and professional life!

Regardless of your personal situation and different pleasures and pains, this workshop is specifically designed to teach you a wide range of techniques and strategies that you can use as a tool to implement into your daily life.

Our day of learning together will enable you to:
- handle life’s ups and downs more effectively
- improve your performance, leverage more positive behaviours and strengthen your resilience
- learn scientific and evidence based approaches that can be practically applied immediately
- personalize your experience by asking the experts questions to help your development journey

Throughout life, all of us experience a combination of delight and displeasure. We are exposed to pleasure and pressure from a wide range of angles and dimensions. Handled effectively, life can be fulfilling, controllable and predictable; handled poorly, our path will seem filled with obstacles and eventually our sense of wellbeing and levels of life satisfaction can be affected.

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:
