Learn About Helen
Helen’s interest in self-healing began when she sought assistance in her final year of high school in order to deal with childhood trauma. Her life was so positively transformed by therapy that she decided to become a therapist. She began studying Behavioral Psychology at university, however, after two years of science-based learning she became disillusioned with this field as it did not deal with the emotional and social life of an individual. She then went on to study the Social Sciences (majoring in law) discovering the relevance of social conditioning and personal experience on an individual’s emotional state and behavior. She also explored the important role of the subconscious at this time.
After graduating in 1994, Helen began seeking a deeper level of healing and tried various alternative therapies. Most of these modalities involved dealing with the emotional causes of physical and psychological issues, and resulted in profound and lasting changes. She then went on to study other areas of interest, such as, meditation, Native American wisdom, yoga, Buddhism, Reiki, kinesiology and psychosomatics. These philosophies and modalities made her aware of the spiritual aspects of life, particularly of the importance of the spirit in the healing process.
In 1997 Helen completed a writing course, as she planned to pen her healing experiences at some point in the future. In 1999, she became a consultant in complementary therapy.
In 2006, she discontinued her business in order to work with children in child care and education (Integration Aide/Teacher’s Assistant). She was inspired by her educational training to create self-help materials. Her knowledge is based primarily on her own healing experiences. Helen re-established her practice in 2008 now working as a self-help author and tutor. Her aim is to educate her clients about healing. In 2010-2011 she wrote a column entitled “Heal ThySelf” for the holistic newspaper, InnerSelf.
Since 2013, Helen has undertaken the study of alchemy and the divinatory arts as they allow greater access and understanding to an individual’s psychological state. As a result of this new found knowledge, she has developed a unique form of therapy that combines divination with counseling and teaching called HealThyself Oracle Readings TM.
