Therapy Testimonials 


“My experience with Helen has been enlightening. I had low self esteem, a blurry image of what my values and strengths were, and a lack of emotional resilience. Helen helped me identify my strengths, while giving me the resources to cope with adversity in a healthy way. The way that I deal with emotional pain has changed for the better throughout this process. Helen’s expertise can guide you through any situation, mild or severe, so don’t hesitate to take the first step towards a better you. I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t”.  Susanne (USA)

“Helen has utterly transformed the way I think about myself. She has given me the power of self compassion, and as a result has totally transformed my life and the life of my boys….they have their Mum back, and she is stronger than she has ever been before ”  Sarah (UK)

“After years of being held back and stuck by the experiences of my past, of never feeling the freedom of living without pain & fear, Helen’s wisdom & unrelenting compassion has gently released me from my emotional & psychological shackles and I now feel equipped to move on with life unburdened & free” Michelle (France)

“I recommend Helen’s therapy as life has a way of knocking me and Helen empowers me to move forward in a positive direction”   Sofia (Italy & UK)

“I first began to chat to Helen at a period of big change in my life, and I can say for certain that she helped me through some great challenges. Her eagerness to listen both actively and with compassion is something I highly valued, and are exactly what I needed at a time when I was most unsure of myself. Her unique approach to situations enabled me to realise that often the answers I sought in others could really be found from within my own experiences. I would highly recommend her” Stephanie (UK)

“I cried with relief, after working with Helen. 62 years gripped by fear until I met her and she freed me from it. Thank you doesn’t seem enough. Anyone thinking of working with her? I urge you to reach out & have your life changed!” Maria (France)



“I have known Helen for over 10 years throughout my time working for Children’s Social Care in Plymouth. She has offered consultation to myself and my colleagues in the fostering service on numerous occasions which has been invaluable. I have also been fortunate to be trained by Helen on various mental health and child protection courses. When working with a particularly difficult case I requested Helen to be my clinical supervisor and she was very happy to oblige. I found these supervisions to be of immense benefit and Helen’s insight helped in achieving best outcomes for the family with which I was working and myself as a practitioner. 

I have no hesitation in recommending Helen’s services to those who may be considering working with her. She is extremely conscientious and professional and her knowledge, insight and skills really do speak for themselves.”



Some changes may look negative on the surface but you will soon realise that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge
