What is it about?
In the book, “UNSTUCK: A strategic approach to living the life you want” we take a tour through what gets people stuck, and offer practical and pragmatic ways for you to get UNSTUCK from whatever it is in your life.
Looking at where people get stuck – at the level of goal setting, by the behaviours they choose, or the unconscious ‘conditions’ that determine behaviours, we see the common mistakes that we all make from time to time, and what to do about them.
Packed with over 120 exercises, the book is designed to support action taking. By actively engaging in the exercises as you move through the book, there is a real opportunity for you to learn, experience and shift just a little, and open a new path forward.
Being stuck is a part of life. Being UNSTUCK might just be easier than you thought.

UNSTUCK - Testimonials
“Philip Owens has provided readers with a strong combination of insightful concepts and practical methods for moving from mere wishes to actual successes. He really can help you get ‘Unstuck’!”
The Right Questions
UNSTUCK does something very few self-help books on the market today actually do - it allows time to reflect, to ponder, to ask the right questions. If we begin anything with the wrong question, the wrong inquiry, we often remain stuck in a cyclic pattern; like paddling in a boat with one oar. Phil gives you two oars and helps you paddle to shore on your own merit. For this reason (and many more) Phil’s book is deeply valuable and applies to everyone, whether you’re stuck or not - it helps you discover more about yourself, your goals and true motives. It helps you re-evaluate your life in a genuine way and move in a direction uniquely designed by you, for you
This book is to mental health and wellness what the ‘Barefoot Investor’ is to family financial security. Phillip Owens imparts compassion, dry wit and candour as he breaks down the components of how we can responsibly manage our own mental health, and interact appropriately with others.
It takes a degree of patience and investment to read this book properly and apply it to oneself truthfully and purposefully. But if I had this book when I tackled the array of mental health issues I’ve experienced over the course of my 47 years, (childhood sexual abuse, eating disorders, grief, post-natal depression, anxiety), I think my journey back to wellness, wisdom, self-acceptance and relationship salvation would have been faster and kinder.
