Richard Boyd – Psychotherapist
Richard is an experienced fully qualified Body Psychotherapist who works with individuals, couples, families and groups and offers a discreet, supportive counselling, coaching and psychotherapy service from Inglewood, Perth, Western Australia.
Richard is married to Helena Boyd and they have been in a loving and committed relationship together for almost 20 years and have a lovely daughter together.
Richard has invested extensively in not just mastering Bodymind science and emerging Neuroscience insights, but has in parallel sought to skill and develop himself into understanding at depth human consciousness and how digital technologies affect humans as we develop and grow from childhood, but also as adults with Personality Disorders, Addictions, Trauma, and family and adult relationship dynamics.
Richard has applied these insights over the last 15 years through one of Western Australia’s prominent practices in a Neuroscience informed, Body Psychotherapy practice, where he assists in working with trauma and addictions, as well as Family System dynamics. He gives back by assisting pro-bono the Military and Essential Services personnel in PTSD resolution in order to help them resume ordinary civilian lives.
Richard also has extensive knowledge of the world’s great traditional religions and brings those frameworks and beliefs into his counselling and psychotherapy work where the client expresses a wish to include that dimension to the work. Richard has undertaken his own realised path of understanding Buddhist traditions and view of reality and brings wisdom and empathy into how he practices as a result.
Richard is recognised as a thought leader in the field of Body Psychotherapy application, as well as Conscious Business philosophy, as recognised in winning the Thought Leader for Asia 2014 in the category of Leadership, Innovation and Business Technology. He is also the Director and owner of Conscious Business Australia.
Richard also lectures, trains and mentors businesses on creating and re-energising the company brand and the customer experience of that business. He consciously elevates company branding to take businesses from a functional business brand to a powerful place of being a positive and engaging based brand based on the power of the emotional experience with customers and staff.
Richard has enjoyed a dual career as a practicing bodymind psychotherapist and mindset coach, as well as having accomplished CEO, CTO/COO. I.T. Strategist, Executive, and Project Manager roles in the last 20 years. He has assisted several technology startups in commercialising, obtaining funding and then listing on ASX and TSX stock exchanges.
Richard also devotes his spare time in giving back to society. He is a presenter and cluster mentor of The Fathering Project at schools, and additionally runs a free mentoring service to young entrepreneurial persons who lack the resources to afford professional commercial coaching and mentoring services.
