Hi! I’m Helen!
I’m a creative change coach.
I help people explore the creative potential in their challenges and bring more of their gifts to the world
What is life is asking of you, right now?
How can you respond creatively, stepping out of well-worn ways and patterns, and towards fulfilling your deeper potential? What important messages are hidden in your challenges? How can you make friends with them and use them for change?
"Helen's coaching has cultivated a clarity and confidence in my work that is most significant. A combination of valuing myself and my expertise, backed up with practical tools to be effective and discern what works for me and the world, has resulted in an increased sense of empowerment and ability to enjoy the projects I work with."

What is coaching?
Coaching is a gentle and powerful way to take steps towards realising your deep potential, uncovering your most powerful resources and strengths, and exploring the deeper meaning behind your life patterns. It focusses on empowerment in the here-and-now, and is future- looking. Although the past may also come in, unlike in therapy, it’s not where we dwell.
Whatever your circumstances, creative answers to your challenges are within you. Through coaching you invite these answers to enter your awareness, and empower yourself to step forward with greater courage, conviction and joy in your life and work.
“ Very often, we wait until life forces us to change and grow, when suddenly we find the old ways no are longer working for us. Yet the invitation to live more true to ourselves and more creatively is there for all of us, all the time.“
Why choose coaching?
If you wish to be more authentic and more effective, then exploring the creative tension between your reality and your dreams with a coach is a great place to start .Hidden in that tension are un-thought of solutions that have the capacity to surprise. The invitation to evolve creatively according to your own nature is ever present and the existence of tensions, confusion or disturbances in your life is a strong indicator that you are ready to evolve into the next stage of your life. Coaching will help you work creatively with your talents, wishes and circumstances so as to curate the future that you wish for. and provide your unique service to the world.
Why choose me?
I have a deep interest in what is presenting in each session as a source of valuable information. I use active listening, trusting and following your process, and offer gentle tools to unstick and unblock where needed. I sometimes bring Process Oriented Psychology to call on greater awareness, inviting in the marginal, the body, disturbances, dreams, symptoms and the environment where appropriate, as active messengers of insight. I have a strong conviction that you are important and that the work undertaken in coaching is important, healing and creative, not just for you, but for the world.
