  • 'I have worked closely with Helen in developing the delivery of a creative therapy group for women with, or at risk of suffering from, post natal depression. Helen’s work in facilitating this group has resulted in some phenomenal outcomes for the women who have been referred to the group. Simple moves forward for many of the women which were unthinkable before meeting Helen. Helen is extremely professional and intuitive in the tailored care pathways which she initiates for each of the women individually. Feedback from the women within the group and the professionals that make the referrals to the group is always extremely positive. Helen, quite simply, is an amazing practitioner that is a joy to work with who I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending.'

    Kirsty Jones Children Centre Manager
  • “Having had the opportunity to get to know Helen as a colleague, I have a very high regard for her work. She identifies young peoples needs, often hidden within their behaviour.  She works in an unconditional, non-judgmental way and continually reviews the group and the needs presented within it, so that both the aspirations and self-esteem of the young people attending can be raised - and I hasten to add with much success! . Helen communicates regularly with myself and the funder's of the drama group so that we are informed of any developments/difficulties along the way.  As a result, Helen has proved herself to be reliable, trustworthy and professional within her work."

    Nicky Worsnop Centre Manager Dreadnought Youth Centre
  • “Helen has been inspirational in her leadership of this group, and has turned around the lives of some of our most vulnerable families. Whilst full of fun and laughter, the groups have become a lifeline for the women involved, and this is all down to Helen’s skill and talent in bringing out the best in them, and re-building their self confidence. Responses from the women involved have been really positive, and the outcomes are amazing. Helen responds to their needs intuitively, and yet with a gentle approach that instils confidence and a sense of security when it is most needed.”

    Caroline Willis Family Services Area Manager Cornwall
  • "Helen is highly professional and has made relationships of the highest calibre with children, parents and staff in our school. She has the ability to listen effectively and in an inclusive way which makes everyone feel equally valid and important. Helen has effortlessly turned what was a freelance appointment into a highly popular and effective additional member of staff."
