Welcome to the ‘brighter side’

I’m Ricky – a writer, street artist, counsellor and a pretty funny person (I reckon!) based in Melbourne, Australia.

Boy Under the Bridge is my platform where I document my journey to the brighter side of life. 

I chose the alias of ‘boy’ because if there’s anything we should cherish and keep from our childhood, it’s the way we see the world. Children see things with curiosity, creativity, awe and possibility. This is the essence of our inner child we should never lose touch with.

My content covers the themes of philosophy, personal growth and mental health. I also offer individual counselling to directly support those seeking to make changes in their lives and speak in schools and on podcasts – sharing both my professional and lived experience.

Feel free to comment on any of my posts; reach me directly using my contact form; follow me on socials; check out my book (free download or print for $13) or if you’d like to show your support, buy me a coffee.

Thanks for stopping by.
