Welcome to Health 4 Life!

The butterfly effect is the phenomenon whereby a minor change in circumstances can cause a large change in outcome.The Butterfly Effect refers to the idea that a butterfly’s wings could create tiny changes in the atmosphere that may ultimately alter the path of a tornado or delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado in another location.
The butterfly does not power or directly create the tornado.The flap of the wings is a part of the initial conditions; one set of conditions leads to a tornado while another set of conditions doesn’t.
The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale alterations of events.

Are you ready to flap your wings with Health4Life?

Let me introduce myself… Stephen Richardson IIHHT Dip ST


Health4Life is my own company.  As Managing Director, I am convinced that the products offered in these pages offer a fresh approach to general Wellness. They have been tried and tested over the years and are constantly updated to keep pace with the times we live in.
I hold a Diploma gained from the IIHHT (International Institute of Health and Holistic Therapies) recognized around the world for excellence. I completed a course in Counseling Skills Development, in 2005.

During my years in Wellness, I have been a Personal Trainer. This was, as is Health4Life now, in the customer service orientated sector, providing one to one instruction sessions. Setting realistic goals for my clients to attain, gives them a real sense of achievement on reaching their targets.

I developed an eating plan for healthy weight loss, which adapts to a variety of challenging situations. For example, I had a client who was vegan and on HRT therapy. She was quite distraught about her inability to lose weight, so I adapted my healthy eating plan, enabling her to attain the weight loss required.
Health4Life has evolved and now focuses on Life Coaching, Mentoring and Diet/Nutrition. As well as one to one sessions, (face-to-face,) in person, I also offer products via Skype and email.

For further information on the various packages available, together with information on the current pricing of each service, please go to my contacts page and leave a message. I aim to reply to all messages within 24 hours. Alternatively, you can phone me but please be aware you may have to leave a message on my voicemail, if I am engaged in a session with another client.

There is also an incentive program for existing clients and referrals into other therapies, as and when required.

I do hope you enjoy the site with all it offers and I look forward to hearing from you!


Health4Life has helped me through a rough and rocky period of my life. Literally, when I thought everyone had given up on me, I found Steve. He has helped me through all my hardest challenges that life has thrown at me. Health4Life has helped me to achieve things I never thought possible and to realise that my life is worth living! Throughout the whole process, Steve has always been there to help me focus on the next big steps in life. He has helped to comfort and support me and I now know that my aspirations are not just a dream! -Jack B.
I have known Steve for approximately ten years as a close friend. Steve is a highly responsible individual with a strong sense of loyalty and integrity. He keeps his promises and takes responsibilities seriously. He is hardworking and committed and is very people orientated with an empathetic and sympathetic nature. I wish him every success in his new venture. -Jackie Phillips
I have known Steve for over 5 years and in that time have always found Steve to be a real encourager and someone who clearly shows interest in other people. I'm excited and really pleased for Steve as he takes this jump into setting up his company called Health4Life, a company that will incorporate a whole range of activities from life coaching to diet and nutrition. Steve is passionate about seeing people fulfill what they are called to do with his gift of encouragement and care for people. This makes him an ideal person to work with, if your seeking life coaching or a change in lifestyle.   Steve has a can do attitude and even in the face of difficulties, I have been impressed with the way he has dealt with challenges and conducted himself. I have every faith in Steve's ability to make his business work and would happily endorse him as he starts this new adventure. - Stu Alleway CGC Chelmsford Community Pastor
I turned to Steve during a highly stressful period of my life.  My marriage had broken down, I had suffered several bereavements in a short space of time and I had lost my job, all this culminated in me not eating properly and feeling extremely low and unwell.  Steve supported me through all of this and helped me to focus on what was important.  Together we formulated a plan of action to get my life back on track.   With Steve's help I was able to tailor my diet to increase my nutritional intake when I was able to eat.  We set weekly targets, all of which were achievable, and with support and guidance from Steve I was able to improve my circumstances within weeks.  I now have a full time job, a new relationship and my eating had improved dramatically.  I can't thank him enough and would highly recommend his support and guidance to anybody who has lost their way. - Pam R
