Helping Business Owners

Calm For Change was formed to provide a dynamic, cutting edge, service to forward thinking small business owners.

You have the same needs and more challenges, than people in larger organisations, but without the same level of personal or business support.

Without this support you can get stressed, feel isolated and stop enjoying your business and life.

Happiness First

Most people assume the same formula: if you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you’ll be happy. The only problem is that a decade of cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology has proven that this formula is backwards.

Success does not beget happiness. It is happiness that actually fuels success and performance.

Why? Because when we are happier and more positive, we are more engaged, creative, resilient to stress, and productive.

Supporting Growth

Our aim is for you and your business to thrive. We enable you to have a positive mindset, a good work- life balance and get rid of limiting beliefs and unhelpful thoughts, so you can achieve what you want more easily and quickly.

Your business can only grow as far as you do. Performance Coaching is proven to give you the clarity and focus you need to be motivated, purposeful and get the results you want.

“Linda has a very calming effect on me and helps me put my thoughts and feelings into order. She gives me tools to help me reflect on my state of mind which have helped me make decisions and plan ahead”.


I was a little apprehensive to begin with yet I am so glad I made the call. You use simple, effective, down to earth language that I could feel and understand. Your warmth, kindness, intuitive gentleness of challenge, and enquiry, enabled me to focus, lessen my confusion and express myself”

“As part of my employee engagement programme for 2016, I was keen to provide a training session around stress management. Our roles in telemarketing can be quite demanding when we undertake numerous calls with either little successful outcome, or when we encounter rude and challenging individuals. Linda’s presentation around stress, stress management and remaining calm to achieve confidence in ourselves and our roles was professionally delivered and well received by all attendees. We all agreed that we had learnt some valuable tools which would implement immediately. I thoroughly recommend Linda Barbour, and her  programme for both teams and individuals who feel that stress is impacting on their work and personal lives”.
