Helen is a qualified and registered Occupational Therapist and Life Coach, having obtained her degree at the University of Pretoria in 1997.
Between 1997 to 2000, Helen pursued her passion for mental health and emotional wellness. She worked at various health institutions across Gauteng, providing group therapy and one-on-one counselling and trauma debriefing. She worked with chronic patients as well as acute patients, setting up Occupational Therapy (OT) departments and doing extensive staff training.
After a brief, but deeply fulfilling experience mentoring and coaching OT students at Wits University, Helen decided to integrate her experience of coaching and counselling with that of training, and joined a Corporate Training Organisation, The Pacific Institute.
Helen has worked as a freelance facilitator in change of management and leadership coaching for The Pacific Institute for over 12 years, as well as coaches in her private practice capacity.
She enjoys using an integrated approach to help her clients set goals, enhance their emotional intelligence, reach their full potential and find meaning and purpose in their lives. Helen’s unique combination of medical, emotional and cognitive experience makes her a compassionate and insightful Wellness Coach.
With a special interest in women’s health and wholeness, having overcome her own personal challenges, she aspires to treat her clients in a non-judgmental and professional manner at all times. Her life is based on faith, hope and love.
