About Me

I've actually got my fingers in quite a few pies!
As well as producing my Podcast, I also work as a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist as well as help run an Am-Dram theatre company.

As a teenager I was very interested in working in the media, in particular Radio production. When podcasting became popular it felt like the right thing to do to merge my passions together and create a platform to share my ideas and concepts with a wider audience.
And so the Richard Nicholls - Motivate Yourself Podcast was born.

It soon became a hit and within a year was almost continually the number one self help podcast in the UK iTunes store. Even regularly reaching the number one spot for the entire UK chart!

I wrote a book, 15 Minutes To Happiness, which was published in 2018 and was extremely well received with multiple 5 star ratings on Amazon and Goodreads.

I live in the Midlands with my wife and son and have been involved in personal development since qualifying as a Hypnotherapist in 2001.
