What people have said

I would thoroughly recommend Steps to Change if you want to become more liberated, motivated and confident in how you approach challenges in both your work and personal life. Olwen is a fantastic sounding board and even if you find talking about and exploring why and how you react to different situations, she can steer you towards a more useful and positive response. Olwen’s guidance and counsel has transformed the way I think about and tackle issue, both the mundane and the more challenging.

I thoroughly recommend Olwen. Three sessions with her & I had dealt with the things that were holding me back and have a realistic plan that I'm truly bought into to achieve my future goals.

Her sessions are expertly facilitated. The use of a whiteboard to capture my words & thoughts worked really well. As did planning in a physical way. Her approach to my "homework" meant I felt she was genuinely invested in my progress throughout. This, a city centre location & all for the equivalent of giving up on my daily coffee for a month so made it very accessible. I'm glad I made the investment.

I can't recommend Olwen highly enough. She took me from a place of almost complete insomnia, extremely low mood and severe depression combined with panic attacks, to a place of being at peace with myself, enabled me to look at things totally differently and change my very fixed thinking. I will always be indebted to her for her genuine interest, listening skills and willingness to invest in me. I have all of her valuable advice saved in my 'Olwen' file, and know that I can always refer to it whenever I need to. My sessions with Olwen have genuinely been life-changing and I can still hardly believe that I'm actually able to sleep at nights now! My sessions with Olwen have been the most valuable three month period of this year.
