Thriving Benefits Everyone

We want to see you thriving in your life – thriving at work, home, school, or wherever you find yourself. We believe that when a person thrives, everyone benefits. When people thrive it transforms workplaces, communities, and whānau. We believe it is essential for everyone to have access to the core principles of wellbeing, resilience and emotional intelligence.

This is what we do. We take a different approach to wellbeing that brings real change.

Director of Forte
“The Forte team found the Mind Health presentations by Richard Black both engaging and enlightening, providing a gold mine of material relevant to everyday situations.”

Coaching Client

“Through my coaching sessions, I recognised that my past hurts were distorting my current perceptions of life, and my emotions did not need to define (or dictate) who I was. The Mind Health Principles helped me acknowledge that I had the power to choose healing, it provided me coping skills I had never learned and it ultimately empowered me to see that I could choose to either thrive in life or stay in bondage to my past. I highly recommend these principles, they are great tools to add to anyones emotional and mental toolbox.”

Israel Cooper

“Since engaging the services of Mind Health, we have seen a drop from at least 80% of staff using their full 5 days annual sick leave to less than 50%.
Staff have also become more proactive in their mental wellbeing. There is an increase in staff accepting our offer of Mind Health coaching and counselling sessions, for pre-emptive rather than reactive reasons.”

Coaching Client

“The tools we have both learnt are really benefiting our family and personal growth. Thank you so much, Richard! There is such a need for the practical things you are teaching. We would fully recommend Richard and what he does.”

Israel & Jessica Cooper

These sessions have been incredibly well received by our staff and build partners. Richard has a highly dynamic and engaging way of presenting tough topics with humour and clarity and provides valuable tools to take away and apply to work and home life.”
