I’m an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Master, Time Line Therapist, Belief Change Practitioner, Master Coach and Hypnotherapist, specialising in mental health, wellbeing and increasing resilience.  Combining Havening Techniques with these other modalities provides a powerful experience for my clients to free themselves from unwanted emotions and claim back their lives to be resourceful and flourishing individuals.

Based in the UK in Staffordshire, I am the founder of Horizons Coaching formed in 2016, although I have been coaching since 2012.  I provide face-to-face sessions with local clients, and work internationally through video conferencing facilities.

I have had the privilege of working with a variety of people from children as young as 9 through to 80 years old’s.  All of these clients have placed their trust in me, sometimes when other therapies have not worked, or have not managed to clear the underlying issues that truly make a difference.  I specialise in emotional and mental issues, anxiety, depression and phobias, stress, abuse and also offer full breakthrough day sessions, as well as shorter regular sessions.

My aim is to make a difference to the lives of my clients and help them to become the very best version of themselves.  By freeing them from negative and unhelpful emotions from past experiences, clients can move forward with their lives feeling empowered and resourceful, so that they can achieve exactly what they want in life.

Just what I needed!

Helen provided a session using Havening Techniques® where she helped me deal with feelings of sadness and insecurities. At the time I had been going through a lot of different uncertainties and a fairly rough breakup so I was having a bad time. The session that we had together was very interesting and helpful to me. The Havening Techniques® that she taught me gave me a sense of calm and peacefulness, and this has helped me to centre my emotions should things start to get to me again. It’s a fantastic way to overcome feelings of insecurities and doubts.

I have hope once again

Helen has helped me through a period in my life that was so unexpected and so painful. I felt so very desperate on some occasions. The negativity towards my persecutors became so profound and I could not make any sense of what had happened to me.
I had always felt that I had been kind, professional and would work many hours over my contract to make sure the working environment was safe and the team felt supported. A resistance to a national change created a divide within the team and unscrupulous strategies were used by some to undermine a strategic project. As one of the leaders, I was directly scrutinised. I felt that my opinion was not considered and I had been condemned and sentenced without a trial.

Over time, my self-belief in my skills of 36 years and my trust in others began to waver. I made contact with Helen in January 2020. I was referred to her from the HR team. By now, I felt I was pretty much a shell, with not much to offer the world.

Helen is a warm and compassionate listener. As a private individual, it was hard for me to showcase how utterly pathetic I truly felt.
She did not patronise, she listened. She did not offer unrealistic explanations as others had done. She listened. She offers a range of resources should I choose to pursue.

She was positive and humorous. She listened. Helen is very relatable and she listened.

Helen tried different therapies to try and unravel the very deep seated hurt that I felt. These were NLP time line therapy and ‘Havening techniques’.

I always felt safe, nurtured and rational with Helen. Psychological safety is really important when an individual feels threatened and hurt. Helen always provided this in a really kind empathic way.

Nothing was ever pushed on me. Havening was suggested. I was rather cynical about this therapy initially. However, after a few sessions I began to change how I felt, the hurt became less intense and I started to move on with trusting individuals again. It is difficult to explain but positivity started to outweigh my negativity. The hurt weakened.

Helen has given me hope and self-belief that anything is possible. I am starting to re-build my career and self-invent who I am.
I would not have got to this stage with Helen’s help. I truly would recommend her skills to those facing challenges in their lives that may feel unsurmountable and hopeless. Helen’s therapy and techniques are very subtle but effective.
I had always felt I was a strong resilient individual. However, situations manifest that can be devastating. Sometimes each of us need help. Helen was that individual for me. I cannot thank Helen enough.

2 Years on!

Two years on and I would recommend Helen in a heart beat. She truly changed my life for the better and for many of my relationships with friends family and work colleagues. Helen worked with me around a particular issue that stayed with me my whole life and affected my life in ways I didn't even realise. Havening seemed to work almost instantly. Helens patience, compassion, trust and sincerity were unconditional and i am changed for the better forever. Helen Thank you for your support when I needed it, you truly are a precious treasure.
