Due to me suddenly realising what I wanted to do with my life halfway through my AS-level course, I changed two of my subjects and had to undergo several months of self-study to catchup with the past 4 months of work that had already taken place in Further Maths and Maths Mechanics, both of which I have sat the exams for and have been performing well (A-grade) in.
What I'm wondering is should I mention this self-study of the two subjects in my personal statement for UCAS this autumn? My reasoning is that it could help big up my independent study abilities if I get good grades, or make worse grades seem more reasonable, but then the changing of subjects could make me seem indecisive, so I'm unsure of whether it would be worth bringing up or not - any input would be massively appreciated.

You shouldn't write any of this in your personal statement. If your referee wants to include it they can do - and if you really want it mentioned, you can ask them to consider including it. But your personal statement needs to focus on why you want to study X at uni, and this is irrelevant.
