Owen grew up in Northern Ireland during ‘The Troubles,’ which was the perfect training ground for understanding the anxious mind due to the conflict and fear that existed in the region.
As a former palliative care nurse, Owen heard first-hand the biggest regrets people have on their death beds and as a result, learnt about the stresses and worries we shouldn’t hold onto.
