Attending this workshop was a joy right from the initial contact with Sandra who was very welcoming and informative.
It was a great taster for Sandra’s other courses and a perfect way of getting to know her work.
The day was very relaxing and comfortable. I created a piece of art that I would never have considered. Sandra was excellent at guiding me through the project and explaining clearly the therapeutic advantages of including creativity in our lives.
I would definitely recommend this workshop.

Spent a lovely day on Sandra’s creative experience day. The venue was warm and welcoming and the art projects we worked on were wonderfully absorbing . It was a fun day and very therapeutic for me and I felt relaxed yet energised and inspired when , at the end of the day , I walked out with three homemade projects !Sandra was a very good tutor and the day was extremely enjoyable .

I met Sandra at a networking event and I was immediately drawn to her wonderful personality. I always wanted to up my creativity, but I have learned that I am better with tuition, so I have joined Sandra at one of her 1 day Creative Experience Workshops which gave me an insight on how Sandra works! Signing up for the creative self discovery course was a total no-brainer.
I loved my time with this fantastic lady, the course is well structured and there is a different topic every time – and best of all, a lot is upcycling. You get some homework, which gets you into the habit of continuing your journey of self finding at home and I certainly replaced some bad habits by sitting down and colouring instead after only two sessions. Sandra gives you a lot of time and support and also gives you the freedom of implementing your own ideas. All materials are included and you do not only take 7 projects home, but several!
I consider myself as pretty self aware already but I still had several light bulb moments through this course and I highly recommend it – it will change your world! This is money very well spent and super value as you get soooooo much out of it!!

Creative Self Discovery Course – Sandra Owen has conceived and developed an innovative course offering an opportunity to experience personal enlightenment through creative workshops.
Sandra is an accomplished and lovely individual who professionally and personally, delivers taster sessions and the full 7 week course. The classes are undertaken in comfortable and friendly surroundings with the opportunity for clients, should they wish, to socialise.
The programme is based on several thinkers aesthetics and self help philosophies. Participants will find that they receive full benefit from workshops and the outcome if they read the notes provided with each session and undertake the assignments suggested.
In addition, all the craft supplies are using recycled items and consequently it is a fun and useful exercise in upcycling. This has been an excellent opportunity for me to reflect and focus on my life and I would not hesitate in recommending the courses, which I have found so beneficial to my mental and physical health.

I found this course really therapeutic and enjoyable. There were a whole host of materials and media to try. It was based around things you enjoyed doing as a child so it bought lots of happy memories flooding back while working. Thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you Sandra
Anita B. (West Midlands, UK)
The ‘Taster Session‘ I attended was excellent. Not only did I learn some new craft skills all made from recycled items – something I have a passion for, but it provided me with the opportunity to focus on my psychological well being and link the two. I will definitely sign up for the full course and I also intend to undertake another taster session.
Sandra is a very skilled tutor and I found her most welcoming and the other participants very friendly. I would thoroughly recommend it.
Eileen T. (Nantwich, UK)
This is by far the best ever course. I have enjoyed every moment. Sandra is such an inspiration and I would recommend it to everyone. Worth every penny.
Pauline P. (Shropshire, UK)
Excellent course. Fun throughout, thought provoking and life changing! Sandra is an excellent teacher and mentor. Thank you Sandra xx
Lesley E. (Shropshire, UK)
This course has been a godsend. It has liberated my inner child, mostly all over Sandra’s carpet and table! It has reignited my creative spark but more importantly allowed me time and guidance to adjust my thinking processes to realise a better, more positive future. Not so much money, but time well spent. Sandra has a very gentle but persistent way of teasing out troubles and finding solutions without you even realising it is happening whilst you play and create lovely things.
Sian M. (Shropshire, UK)
Being on my own personal journey of self discovery, understanding and development has been, and I’m sure will continue to be, an exciting roller coaster. However, with the guidance and mentoring of Sandra, she has helped me learn how to find solutions and clarity through processing, challenging myself and guiding with helpful questions, referred to tools and reading references, to arrive at my own decisions and understanding. I am very grateful to have been mentored, guided and coached by Sandra and consider her a valuable friend.
Sandra is an amazingly kind, patient, empathetic and savvy lady who with her natural gifted skill of guiding and helping others, has always helped me to feel comfortable in being honest and encouraged to be courageous in living and loving life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Sandra for being you an amazing guide.
Cheryl A. (London, UK)
I have been very fortunate to have been personally mentored by Sandra Owen. I found Sandra to be warm, empathetic, and compassionate. As I applied my new skills she was beside me every step of the way as a patient observer and a skillful mentor. She intuitively knew when to let me find my own answers and when to use the moment as a teaching opportunity.
Sandra is heart centred and is truly interested in helping others ignite their imagination. To help them reconnect with their inner child. If someone is feeling stuck and unable to move forward in their life Sandra has the ability to help individuals rediscover their hidden talents and potential.
I have come to think of Sandra as a close personal friend and we continue to Mastermind as we support one another on our individual journeys. I feel blessed to have her in my life. I would encourage anyone who is creative, would like to be creative, or doesn’t think they are creative to connect with Sandra. You will gain much more than you could ever imagine!

I had the privilege of enjoying the personal coaching of Sandra Owen for over six month and she is the most amazing asset in mentoring. Her gentle touch and understanding nature coupled with a sincere desire to help and be of service can propel You towards Your goals and aims as she did for me. I would not be where I am today without her support!
Claes W. (Sweden)
Sandra became my mentor and I found she was able to bring out the best in me and set me on a path of self discovery. She is a great giver, drawing from years of personal experience and challenges. She has a great understanding of personality traits along with her ability to empathise and encourage.She is totally honest and doesn’t withhold if she can see what’s holding you back from progress.
I am happy to recommend her and I am forever grateful for her timely wisdom and friendship.

Because I found Sandra’s style to be so gentle & welcoming, and the videos were well done & easy to follow, I surprised myself with how much I “realized” about myself. The 7 week combination of music, coloring, reading, reflecting and crafting have set me on a new course of introspection for life! & I have found a new way to generate love, joy and energy for myself & share with all those in my world- invaluable!

Last year in September 2015 Sandra Owen crossed my way. She became my guide during a 6 month self-discovery experience.
Sandra is a great listener and an attentive observer and very patient. What I appreciated most was that she asked the right questions at the right moment and accompanied my inner process without interfering. She encouraged me to be persistent in my exercises and to look over them again and again until the result was resonating with and in ME.
I’m so grateful for all her sharing of knowledge, experiences, skills and most important her dedication and love.
Thank you, Sandra!

As a customer I undertook the 7 week Creative Self Discovery Course which entailed a mixture of theory-work and discussion, practical crafting and homework. Sandra took time to sort of baseline where I was before we began the course, to understand my individual needs. Throughout the course she was able to relate the key learning points to my original needs which I thought was impressive, respectful and worked really well. It felt personalised even though this is a fully completed and documented course.
Sandra had all of the equipment required for the craft session set up in her Craft Room each time on arrival. She gave me protective clothing when needed and gave me safety advice regarding using hot glue guns and glues and solvents. Everything was very well organised and I felt like I was in safe hands. Her teaching style is patient, gentle but firm and confident. The theory was cleverly woven through the craft sessions so that the relationship between the two were made clear.
The homework was challenging, in all the right ways. It took commitment of time and thought. Each week I was given a pack to take home and it was really thoroughly researched and well put together. Each built on the last and bit by bit they opened my mind back up to the creative thinking we all have as a small child (before school trains it out of us). I noticed that Sandra was able to give extra assistance where needed without making the person feel inadequate, and to ensure they were not left behind the others in the group. She also has the knack of allowing those who are more confident a bit of free reign to try things out that are slightly different to the brief.
As a partner I find Sandra knowledgable, professional and dedicated. I have enjoyed planning and coaching sessions with her, running network meetings together and we have upcoming co-presented Creative Problem solving days in the diary.
Sandra’s extensive knowledge of the psychology and spirituality behind changing one’s mindset gives her a unique set of skills. She formulated the content in the courses entirely on her own and it is all original. She has integrity, honesty and kindness that she gives willingly making her approachable, flexible and successful. Everyone else I have met who has worked with her or completed her course raves about the life-changing qualities of her courses. She has allowed herself to be vulnerable and generous with her clients which in turn has given them permission to make changes in their lives and she makes it easy to trust her with this delicate and sometimes emotional change.
I look forward to working with Sandra for many years to come.

I attended Sandra’s 7 week creative self action course at the end of 2016 during a traumatic professional situation.
I would like to recommend the quality of Sandra’s professional service tailored to my individual needs from first hand experience. I think every attendee would leave with an opportunity to think and reflect creatively gaining support and confidence in their ability to make positive changes in their life.
I found the interaction with Sandra Owen completely tailored to my individual needs providing a platform from which I was able to explore new ways to create, think and plan ahead in a professional, relaxed and creative environment with Sandra’s guidance.
The key difference with this self discovery course was Sandra’s use of bespoke craft activities to demonstrate new ways to think about and view difficulties and to produce very carefully constructed craft items, with Sandra’s support, whilst gaining confidence about those craft successes. The activities were both a challenge and a delight to produce and being a regular attendee in a relaxed and well supported group was very enjoyable and supportive. Whilst immersed in the carefully constructed craft activities there was an opportunity to gain insight into new ways to view problematic situations and share those in the group if members wished to do this.
I am a person who is qualified in 3 professional areas. I deliver training in my current professional job role.
Sandra’s bespoke and unique creative self discovery course is one of the most beneficial training courses I have experienced to date. The course specifically helped me to :-
* Engage in new thinking
* Regain confidence to succeed
* Enjoy craft activities which produced high quality items
* Express myself as an individual
* Accept and share praise
* Move forward and use my experience to plan ahead creatively
As a direct result of my attendance of Sandra’s course I have redesigned my income and life/work balance improving my life satisfaction and well being. The course provided a catalyst for change. The opportunity to be part of Sandra’s work was an absolute privilege, one which others should have access to. I would throughly recommend the benefits of this unique opportunity for self action through Sandra Owen Creative.
