Start Your Hero’s Journey of Self Discovery & Personal Growth So You Can Live the Life You Were Meant to Live

Whole Life Coaching for a Whole Life

Have you reached a point in your life where you’re wondering if you will ever:

  • Feel free and confident enough to just be your true self?
  • And live a meaningful life with purpose and passion?
  • And simply be content and happy and at peace with yourself?
  • And have the clarity and courage to decide on your direction and take your next steps?

Whether in Toronto or Vancouver, or anywhere across Canada, many of my clients looked for a life coach when they felt stuck at a crossroads and needed help making important decisions about which way to turn for fulfillment, and something that would make them feel excited and happy about who they are, and what they’re doing with their lives.

Many come for help with a career transition, relationship difficulties,  or because they want help achieving a goal that’s been unattainable so far and they feel it will make them finally feel right about themselves.

A lot of people don’t even know what they want at all (if this is you, you’re not alone) and feel like they’ve lost themselves, their passion, their mojo, or their spark and they want it back!

Whole Life Self Leadership Coaching with a professionally trained, heart-centered coach may just be the answer to the question – how can I create the life I’m meant to live?

Below are other questions & struggles my clients were asking before we started working together: (take a bit of time with each question and see what resonates or moves you in some way)

  • How can I discover & finally be my true self?
  • How can I know if I’m making the right choices? What if I make the wrong decision?
  • Why do I keep getting stuck in the same messed up situations? relationships? jobs?
  • Will I ever be confident and feel good about myself?
  • How do I stand up for myself? and be more assertive & direct in confrontation?
  • I have everything I set out to achieve, and then some, why aren’t I happy or at peace?
  • How do I find my purpose in life? because I’m really feeling a sense of emptiness &  don’t know what to do with that?
  • I’ve been to therapy and coaching before, they help for a bit but something’s still missing – what is it?

Did anything resonate or echo a question or two you’ve been chewing on for a while?

Maybe you’re here because you’re not the typical person and you’ve been on your personal growth path for a while and you’re ready for a different kind of journey, with a different kind of coach.

This is Your Hero’s Journey of Self Discovery, Growth & Positive Transformation

I offer a varied blend of approaches to helping people in their lives. Life coaching is one of them and even in coaching,  I offer different approaches for different needs and types of people. This, is one of my personal favorites!

Cultivating Self Leadership is a journey of self discovery, challenge and personal growth, very much like the “Hero’s Journey”.

If you haven’t heard about it, please indulge me for a minute or two because it can serve as a roadmap for your own personal development.

The Hero’s Journey

A man named Joseph Campbell, a mythologist, professor and writer, studied and documented the similarities in myths across different times and cultures.

What Campbell found was that the hero of each myth went through similar stages and ordeals, physically and psychologically in every myth. He called this template or structure the Monomyth. I summarize the stages below – see if you can find where you are on this journey.

an old dangerous bridge marks the call to adventure - on a life coaching journey you've already received the call to change your life, will you take the next steps outside of your comfort zone?

The Call to Adventure & Growth

It’s time to depart from the ordinary and relatively safe world you’ve created but aren’t satisfied with. Adventure is calling and inviting you into the unknown.

Fear of change, pain and loss keep one tethered to the status-quo and while the call to adventure and self actualization can be refused it isn’t without painful consequences.

It’s time to cross the threshold. Make that life-changing (life-starting) decision and leave the old world behind.

~ Quit that crappy job.

~ End that abusive relationship.

~ Take that trip you’ve always dreamed of.

~ Go out and live on your own.

~ Open that business & serve your purpose.

Whatever it is, it’s the start of your intentional journey of personal growth, and there’s no turning back.


It won’t be easy. There are barriers, challenges and obstacles along the way – some in the form of people you know and trust. They’re scared for you and without meaning to, they crush your dreams and scare you out of moving forward. If not them, there are other obstacles that challenge you and test your will.

Many do retreat and try to go back to life the way it was before but after a while find themselves suffering – boredom, anxiety, depression, pain, lack of drive and spirit.


But all hope is not lost. If one still dares to listen to their heart (soul, higher self, spirit) they find the courage, the strength, and the wisdom they need to forge ahead.

Often, one finds a guide or mentor (or coach, ahem) along the way to guide, teach and inspire them to believe in themselves and their cause.

Again, they set out to reach their destination and they’re confronted with obstacles and challenges that summon and invoke strengths and qualities they didn’t know they had.

The Hero’s Return

And then, victory! The challenge overcome, destination reached, and the goal achieved. But somehow that is now secondary to the greater achievement, that of discovering who they truly are and the purpose they wish to serve in life.

The journey is NOT over. No, it’s only round one of a cyclical process that can go on for the rest of one’s life.

In later journeys, one finds even greater gifts and treasures within the mystery of their inner world. For when they can confront and embrace all parts of themselves – the glorious and the exiled – nothing in the outer world can stop them from creating and enjoying an authentic, rich and meaningful life.

Transforming Limits into Possibilities

I hope you can see that you are on your own Hero’s Journey, as am I, and everyone else we know.

We could all use some guidance, support and encouragement, and the right kind of coaching, with the right kind of coach can serve these needs very well.

There are fundamentals you need to learn to prepare for the journey. At HeartRich, we coach with the heart in mind, meaning that we use the physical and figurative heart as a real and figurative tool to access, and cultivate, the best parts of ourselves. From the heart we get our values, our courage, our will and our greatest gifts, love and compassion.

In order to transform yourself and your life, there are things you need to know about yourself. If you don’t know about them, you can’t change them.

Over a decade of coaching (and nearly 20 years of personal development work) has shown me time and again that these are the foundational areas to work on so you can create the life you are meant to live.

The fruits of this work are an authentic, free life,
rich with meaning, purpose, presence and fulfillment.

What Will You Learn & Work On?
These are good to start with:


Essential Needs

From safety & security needs, to belonging, to self worth, to love, to purpose – we all have a checkered history with getting these needs met. When one of these needs is threatened, we react instantly with our own signature stress response to protect ourselves.

Which needs trigger which reactions in you? What old fears & beliefs are causing you trouble today? How about we do some work on that?

Core Values

Your Personal or Core Values are the virtues, principles, people and things that matter to you the most in this world. They are who you really are, they come from the heart, and they can guide you to choose your own way. In honoring them, you create meaning and fulfillment in your life.

Let’s get clear about yours!



With your needs met, your heart open and your values clear, what vision do you have for your future? Where are you? With who? Doing what? What do you truly desire?

You can even meet your Future Self and get some sage advice!

Strengths & Gifts

What qualities did you come into this world with that make you, you? What do you have a knack for? Always been good at? Often get complimented on or appreciated for? Don’t know? Maybe you haven’t been valuing your own strengths and gifts.

If you use your strengths and gifts in service of your values, you’ll not only create a meaningful life, you’ll probably also love it!


Does life have a purpose? Do you? These are tough questions with lots of mixed advice out there. You get to decide. Do you want to make a difference in the world? A clear understanding of purpose helps us find our motivation and will and reminds us to just be ourselves.

Honoring our sense of purpose gives life meaning and creates fulfillment.

True Self & Other Parts

Discover your true self and get to know the cast of many characters inside your own mind, like the infamous inner critic, the inner punisher, the people-pleaser and many more. The ultimate aim is to transcend our limited and restricted sense of who we are, so we can be whole, real, and free.

For inner peace & a full life, learn to accept & love all your parts.  

Who This Guy?

Who This Guy?

HeartRich Founder & Coach Guy Reichard

Kind of you to ask! I’ve completed a few rounds of The Hero’s Journey over the past 20 years, learning more and becoming more and more myself each journey.

I’ve been with the love of my life for 18 years. We live with our cat, Isabel & dog, Charlie just north of Toronto.

My values are: Love, Peace, Wellbeing, Freedom, Growth, Truth, Fun, Joy, Wholeness, Purpose, Resilience, Flexibility, and Creativity. You can learn more here.

How Does This Work? What Now?

Instead of limiting ourselves by a one-size-fits-all package and price, we can start with just 5 sessions and go session by session after that for as long as you find value in our work.

Ideally, one session per week at first, and then creating more space in between (every 2 weeks, then every 3).

A journey of 4-5 months (10 sessions) would start at about $3,000 and could be payable in several installments or a monthly plan.

Realistically though we’re looking at working together intermittently for a couple of years – for successive journeys and growth. Once every month or a few sessions here and there.

Please note: with certain exceptions for people who have done a lot of work on themselves in the past, this program is recommended for those who’ve taken The HeartRich Resilience Fundamentals, so we already know each other and know we’ll be a good fit. If you haven’t taken a look at that program, please do so now.

If you definitely want to take this journey together, let’s combine it and start with the Fundamentals!

For the remainder of the year, due to Covid’s impact on all of us, I am offering a discounted package – combining The HeartRich Resilience Fundamentals resilience training program plus 10 Whole Life Coaching sessions for $3600 – tax included.


What’s Included?

  • 1-on-1 Coaching Sessions (mainly by phone)
  • Materials emailed before each session
  • Life Challenges & Commitments
  • Check-In / Support Calls or Emails
  • A lot of Heart!
