About me

Every butterfly is beautiful and unique, just like you.  

And as a unique individual, you deserve a personally tailored approach to inspire you to blossom into the beautiful woman you are meant to be.

And this all starts with a visit to the beautiful and natural surroundings of The Old Farmhouse, where we will explore your deepest needs and desires. Through my signature programme, Become Phenomenal, I will hold space and walk alongside you as you learn to set healthy boundaries, practise meaningful self-care, ditch the guilt and master your inner thoughts, allowing you to take back control of your life so that you can truly spread your wings and fly.

As a woman, you are used to wearing lots of hats to identify your many roles in life and you are really very good at it, aren’t you?

​But it’s so easy to get into a habit of putting everyone else’s needs before our own and focus all of our energy on people pleasing, so that everyone else is happy and we feel like we belong!

​We sacrifice our own needs, wants and desires for the sake of others, leading us to feeling burned out, stressed, exhausted and overwhelmed.

​And then, when we DO actually put ourselves FIRST, we get the crushing and heart stopping GUILT!

As women, we feel guilty about pretty much EVERYTHING and often take the blame for every little thing that has gone wrong, EVER!

​And if that isn’t bad enough, our inner critic raises its ugly voice, highlighting those perceived failures and keeping us stuck in a cycle of guilt, shame and heaviness.


​So lets make a change…

​With a 25 year background in healthcare and over 10 years’ experience in coaching and complimentary therapies, I will show you how to put you back at the top of your to do list, without turning your kindness, care & attention for others into an unkindness you use against yourself.

​How self-care is not a luxury, it is a priority if you want to help others and do great stuff. To be your most vibrant self, with the energy to give to others, without depleting your own.

​You deserve to feel your best, you deserve to feel phenomenal, you deserve to feel worthy.

​Through years of training and experience with some amazing clients, I have blended my skills in coaching, hypnotherapy, reiki and meditation into my own unique and simple brand of support. Together, we will agree on the perfect blend of these services for your individual needs and make a plan over a time period that suits you and your lifestyle. 

​I strongly believe that you inherently know the answers to every question or challenge you are experiencing, even if they may be hidden deep inside you or obscured from view.

​We will work closely together to assess what areas of your life needs the most attention in terms of change or improvement, breaking it down into manageable-size chunks that are achievable for you. We will work at a pace that you choose, although I may encourage you to move a little faster if I feel it will benefit you. I will offer you honest and open feedback and celebrate with you, those moments of inspiration, revelation and recognition when you realise what you are capable of achieving.

​I bring an individualised and wholehearted approach to everything I do, and will guide you to reconnect with your head and heart in a way that allows you to fulfil your dreams and live a balanced, wholehearted and happy life.

There may be tears and laughter along the way but I promise, it will be so worth it!

The women's revolution is coming.

So while the rest of the world is in chaos, let's sneak in through the back door and allow ourselves to celebrate and demonstrate our true worth! 

It's time to set yourself free.

If this resonates with you, your first step is to arrange your free “Become Phenomenal Check In” so that we can chat about YOUR needs and desires and where YOU would like to flourish.

Drop me an email, give me a call or direct message me via my social media links to arrange your free “Well Being Check In”  at The Old Farmhouse.

Client testimonials:

We came to Helena as my daughter was suffering from extreme anxiety and low confidence which was making her ill, Helena has made a huge impact on my daughters everyday life in that Helena has provided tools and different perspectives for my daughter to be able to deal with her issues.

We chose to go with Helena as she has a unique set of skills whereby she offers coaching and reiki and in some sessions we combine both.

Since having both coaching and reiki my daughter is more positive and developed resilience to deal with issues in school.  I would recommend Helena to family and friends and Helena has been very flexible and always happy to accommodate extra sessions or reschedule sessions. 

Parent of Teenage Client, March 2023

I came to see Helena because I was feeling quite lost in my career, and generally feeling quite down and anxious that I wasn't making the correct life choices. Helena helped me understand who I am, my purpose and my values through life coaching sessions which have honestly been life-changing! My business, career, friendships, relationships, as well as my self-esteem, have all dramatically improved since our sessions. I now feel more in tune with myself and aligned with my goals and purpose. As well, Helena's Reiki sessions are incredible and go so well alongside life coaching!

Emilia Papadopoullos, March 2023

How can I describe the support Helena gave me? That's a tough one to put into words.

I had hit THAT rock, not knowing what to do, who I was and what I could achieve. The lovely, kind, professional Helena listened to me, and gave me the tools, support and care I needed to make a career change when I needed it most. To take a step out of my comfort zone when my anxiety was owning my life. This was the step I needed to boost my confidence and realise my anxiety can be managed and I can do things I never thought capable.

I would highly recommend Helena as a life coach, support and mentor, thank you so much my wonderful friend! Xx

Abbie, September 2022

It has taken me a while to write this review for Helena because I wasn’t quite sure where to start, how I could put into words what she’s done for me and mostly I was worried that what I would write wouldn’t do her justice – which I still know it won’t! Helena is a true gift, she has helped me from rock bottom with no direction in life to happy and direction in all areas. Helena has helped me deal with traumatic experiences, personal issues, career issues, living issues, partner issues and any other issues along the way! The biggest compliment I can give her is that I no longer need her! I came in at the bottom and came out on top. If you are looking for a warm hearted, friendly, understanding, trustworthy and non judgemental lady to help you with life’s problems or just sort your life out in general, then look no further! Whatever the problem is or guidance needed, this lady will be able to help you and in the best way possible. Thank you again for everything Helena, you’ll never know just how grateful I am.

Coaching Client March 2020

Helena is a natural coach who has an amazing ability to make me feel at ease immediately. Her caring and non-judgemental attitude made the coaching sessions feel warm and friendly throughout. Often offering me perspectives that I had not even considered before, I found my time with Helena to be really beneficial. No hesitation in recommending her to anyone.
