I came to see Helen as I had some issues with mindset about setting up certain aspects of my business. Helen held the space for me to sort through my thoughts and see clearer what was holding me back and why. This then gave me the ability to make changes and after just our first session I went and done something I had been putting off for weeks, if not months! I also found the notes Helen sent summarising our session afterwards really useful, as it’s easy to lose track of what you’ve spoken about when several things come up in a session. I would thoroughly recommend working with Helen, she is natural, friendly but professional and puts you at ease so you can really dig deep and find out what’s going on.I’ve found it a really useful space and have unpicked a lot of what was getting in my own way.

When I decided to start life coaching I was all over the place. You wouldn’t be able to tell that from outside. Like many, I am good at keeping it calm from outside.  I was overwhelmed professionally and personally. There were not enough hours in the day. Being full time working mother of a toddler I was feeling pulled in either directions. Ironically, despite working hard as both roles, some days I would feel that I was lacking at both.Sessions with Helen helped me on multiple levels.  Her techniques and ways of working provided me a framework to organise my thoughts and make amends where needed. As a result I achieved clarity on what I really wanted, my priorities and my goals and helped me achieve most of them. Over a course of few session I was less anxious and more sure of myself. In a weird way I was able to control what little was in my remit and felt empowered. I am extremely grateful I got opportunity to explore Life Coaching with Helen. 2020 has been an interesting year  and like billion other I sometimes find it hard to cope too. And I still go back to coaching sessions when it all gets bit too much. Because, It is okay to ask for help when you need it. It is not a weakness, in fact it’s one of the bravest thing you can do for your own wellbeing. I can’t recommend Helen enough if you are feeling a bit low.

I found myself in a bit of a rut; feeling confused about work and personal priorities, how to combine them and how to motivate myself to move forward in the right direction. Helen helped me apply some logical thinking to areas of my life that had become a bit bogged down in emotion and boredom (some due to Covid!). She helped me feel clear about Pro's and Con's and also on things I did and didn't want to change. From that position we built a plan of action, only a few tasks, to get me back on the right track for me and to get me motivated again. I felt really confident and comfortable sharing information with Helen, even the emotional stuff, as she was very reassuring and had some really great theories to help support some of what I was going through. I would wholeheartedly recommend speaking to Helen if you are experiencing any kind of uncertainty and are struggling to find your own way forward.

Helen's coaching enabled me to reflect on my career, understand my personal wants and needs and asses where I wanted to be in the future. This coaching allowed me to identify the actions to take things forward, boost my confidence and be a better leader. Everyone could do with a coach at some point in their career and I would recommend people speak to Helen

I didn't realise how much I was going to get out from working with Helen. From only few sessions we had until now, there were incredible realisations that are now helping me evolve more, and get the confidence that I really need to move forward.  Helen is a good woman, great to speak with, and her peacefulness is contagious. Her skills as a coach are powerful as she really knows how to listen, evaluate and challenge. She has provided me with the space that I'm not being judged, but pure enthusiasm to move forward. It's incredible how much we hold ourselves back from all the self doubt and fear we get, but I'm determined to let go and live life properly. Thank you Helen for your support you have given me!

Helen is a joy to work with! She is friendly and knowledgable, she really knows her stuff and has used lots of helpful strategies to support me in reaching my goals. She never fails to make me smile and is incredibly patient!

Helen was amazingly helpful in getting me back on track and re-organised after a tricky year when I was struggling to stay focused.  We worked together to identify blockers, issues, and areas for improvement. At every stage, Helen had a suite of tools and techniques to hand for tackling challenges in a systematic and consistent way. By shifting my focus onto end-goals and outcomes, and guiding me through triaging issues and possible solutions, she chunked up seemingly intractable tasks into  easily manageable and digestible parts.

Helen has been an invaluable support to me twice now. Once last year, when I started a new job and needed to ensure I performed at my best and again this year to gain some clarity. Sessions with Helen really help clear my mind and allow me to reach my goals. Her style puts me at ease straight away and she keeps our sessions on track and focussed. Without doubt I’d book Helen next time I need a coach and I’d recommend her to anyone.

SILVIE F

Coaching with Helen is uplifting, I feel space, attention and definitely trusted environment. We met at an event in London, started talking and Helen became my coach who is helping me with setting up my own business which as you may realise feels quite uncertain. However, already after first few sessions I saw the progress, took more courageous steps and thanks to Helen’s support was able to double the amount of clients in the first month. I would recommend Helen to be your coach and mentor with all my heart.

LOUISE K

I worked with Helen over 6 sessions. During this time she helped me identify several hidden ‘blocks’ as to why I was procrastinating on a piece of coursework for a course I was undertaking; one block being the belief that if ‘things in life are meant to be, they’ll come easily’ (not a very helpful thought!) Since recognising this in my sessions with Helen, I have been able to break this belief and within 3-months of finishing my sessions, completed and passed. Thanks Helen!

I visited Helen last year when I needed some guidance and helpful techniques with managing my work/life balance and she worked her magic in only 3 sessions! She's amazing! Being able to discuss and brainstorm ideas and priorities with her has made such an impact on my day to day life, I no longer have that regular feeling of being overwhelmed. Almost a year on and I still use the advice on a daily basis. Thank you Helen!

Helen as a coach has been enlightening. I have learnt more about myself in a few short sessions than I ever thought possible. With every dead end, Helen gently provides the entrance to a path through, that she has encouraged me to widen and lengthen as I travel down it. Wasn’t sure coaching would be for me but it has been the highlight of my week. Helping me navigate through challenging times, even if it’s just realising I have the knowledge within, I needed someone to help me find and use it. I originally attended one of Helen’s amazing career vision workshops which I can’t recommend enough. An amazing way to start thinking about you, where you want to be and how you’re going to get there.
