With all the credentials you’d expect from a words person (BA in English Lit, MA in Communications, a string of writing jobs, personal blogs and freelance work), Steph Bowen went in search of the deeper implications of language in 2013, when she studied life coaching.

After dozens of clients and years of in-depth training on the human condition, she found the perfect marriage of words and people at Rain City Writing. Working with entrepreneurs and small businesses to help them express themselves online is her favourite application of communication to date.

When you work with Steph you can expect an intuitive understanding of who you are and what you want to say almost immediately.

She uses her coaching skills to help you uncover the deeper meaning of your work, and her finesse with language to help you articulate it.

When not at her laptop, she’s probably teaching a yoga class, running the Sea Wall, or cooking in her Olympic Village kitchen.
