My Story

Hello! I’m Richard Harris,  Hypnotherapist, NLP, Certified Master Firewalking  Instructor  & Empowerment Coach 

As the flames danced in the dark of the woods, I felt an inexplicable connection—a primal pull that would shape my destiny. Little did I know that those childhood camping trips, huddled around crackling fires, would ignite a passion that would carry me across hot coals and into the hearts of countless others.

Bushcraft Years:  Along side my corporate career, I cut my teeth as a bushcraft instructor, teaching survival skills to eager souls. The wilderness became my classroom, and the ancient wisdom of fire-making, shelter-building, and foraging flowed through my veins. But it was more than practical knowledge; it was a communion with nature—an understanding that fire was not just warmth, but transformation.  Here my spiritual connection to the land and the fire, that I had felt deeply as a child,  grew. 

Many years later, now a practicing therapist, I found myself at a firewalk event—an enigmatic gathering where people shed their doubts and stepped onto glowing embers. Skepticism clung to me like dew on grass, but curiosity pushed me forward. As the coals blazed, I hesitated, my heart pounding. Could I really do this?   

Then, something shifted. The crowd’s energy enveloped me—the collective courage, vulnerability, and hope. I stepped onto the coals, and the world blurred. Each step seared my doubts, leaving behind a trail of ash. I emerged unscathed, but my soul was forever marked.

That night, I vowed to share this transformative experience with others.  What I had experienced was the deep embodiment of my therapy practice and my spiritual practice - it was both and I was hooked.

Empowerment Unleashed: As a firewalk instructor, I have witnessed miracles. CEOs shed their titles, mothers reclaimed their strength, cancer survivors regained their confidence and sceptics found faith. The coals became a canvas for rewriting stories—of resilience, courage, and breakthroughs. I guided trembling hands, whispered encouragement, and watched eyes light up and tears of joy shed as they crossed the threshold of fear.

My Own Breakthroughs: But it wasn’t just about guiding others. My own breakthroughs happened too. Each firewalk peeled away layers—the imposter syndrome, the fear of failure, the need for validation. I learned that firewalking wasn’t just about physical heat; it was about the fire within—the untapped potential waiting to be unleashed.

So here I stand—a Master Firewalk Instructor and empowerment coach—bridging ancient wisdom with modern courage. The campfires of my childhood still flicker in my memory, but now they burn brighter. As I lead others across coals, I know that transformation lies not in the flames, but in the willingness to step forward, despite the heat.   Join me!

Remember, the fire you walk through is the fire that transforms you.
