About Helen

My private practice is now closed until further notice, but remember….

There is a way through everything….together, we find it.

In discovering your own wise-way, comes healing, renewal and transformation.

“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.” Ben Okri

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart... Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” C.G. Jung (1966)
