DOWNSHIFTING and LIFE-CHANGE PROGRAMMES - HOW WE HELP
We take the risk out of downshifting.
When you are in the middle of your own life sometimes you cant see the wood for the trees. That's where we come in. Bring us your ideas about what you want your future to look like. We act as objective observers, who you can bounce your ideas off. We will ensure that you know what you want from your new life, help you make decisions and assist you to plan each step so that will have the best chance of succeeding.
Downshifting is an enormous decision to make. Downshifting or making a life change requires thought, discussion and planning if you are going to get it right. You don't have to do it all by yourself. We will be here to help you every step of the way. We can help you - from your first idea right through to buying that cottage with roses around the door or opening your own business - or simply improving your work/life balance.
At Stepping Off we offer practical help and assistance on a huge range of topics. Looking at these in depth will help you make those life-changing decisions. What makes us different.
