When not torturing his neighbours by dancing (poorly) to early 90's house music in his underwear, Richard Grannon can be found making funny faces in the gym lifting things that he has no business lifting or chasing after his dog Max down the beach bellowing at him to stop eating trash, poopy, sandwiches, children etc.
Richard Grannon is a life coach who can help you find your core values and understand your direction in life. With a BSc in Psychology and a Master Practitioner certification in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), Richard is “The Spartan Life Coach” — an expert in applying the Spartan values of strength, self-discipline, and bravery to psychological training. Working with Richard enables you to take back control of your life… and finally be authentic to yourself again.
Some of Richard’s earliest work in life coaching was aimed toward the younger sector. In his early twenties Richard primarily coached teenagers to nurture their emotional intelligence, set goals, and learn how to make informed decisions that benefited their lives. Soon Richard expanded his focus and began creating psychological solutions for clients of all ages and backgrounds. His unique style of life coaching, coupled with his groundbreaking forays into lesser-known issues like narcisstic abuse and complex PTSD situations, quickly made Richard stand out in his field.
Richard’s coaching and motivational speaking has taken him across cities, countries, and even continents. One of his most memorable international experiences was when he lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for three years. He created the Dynamic NLP Group and ran his own meetup groups there, as well as in the UK, where he is originally from. Richard was an integral part of the growth of NLP in Kuala Lumpur; there hadn’t been much interest in the subject beforehand and he is proud to have started a movement within the community. The meetup group still thrives in Kuala Lumpur under new leadership.
To truly connect with someone, a life coach must be able to enter that person’s mindset, and Richard has had the complex, yet rewarding experience of doing this in cultures that are vastly different from his own. Following his eye-opening stay in Kuala Lumpur Richard has now moved to Portugal, where he is learning new political and social structures and understanding how they feed into the nation’s views of psychology. Through his day-to-day work and his international experience, Richard Grannon has cultivated a unique ability to do therapeutic work.
