Owen has over 25 years experience in the mental health sector, he is a former NHS Mental Health Clinical lead and he now runs a successful private practice in London. This experience has provided Owen with the necessary skills to analyse any mental, emotional, or stress related issue with the upmost efficiency. He believes that a great mind warrants unprecedented improvements for every aspect of daily working life.

His book, Ten To Zen provides a mapped out plan to help quieten, calm, and control the mind. He aims to improve mental clarity, and put an end to unhelpful thought patterns. Owen has condensed a lifetime of experience into an exceptional book, and wants to share this through speeches and workshops.

Owen does not shy away from documenting his personal struggles, be it grief, devastation, or his battle to come to terms with his own sexuality. This vulnerability makes his talks highly engaging, and relatable. He avoids jargon and academia, he instead uses workshops, and draws upon his own experiences, to highlight the importance of prioritising a happy, healthy mind.
