Areas of Expertise
Your coaching sessions are hugely beneficial to me, you create a calm and friendly space to explain all my crazy thoughts without any judgement. I often talk a lot but you have a gift of asking precise questions that really get me to think differently. I am feeling more confident in my abilities, and I’ve also learned to trust myself more. I am capable and I’m doing well!
Anna C. Head of HR in a new phase of her career
At the beginning I was “let’s see what happens”. Now I have a clear picture of what I want and a positive outlook and inspiration and hope I can change. I would describe working with you as: patient, listening, flexible approach, respect, calm, comfortable, challenge, energetic, secure, presence. You’re my brainstorming partner.
AP. Higher Education specialist, wanting career change
Helena is creative and flexible, always coming up with interesting ways to help me through my thought process. I can really feel that she’s on my side and that makes me feel safe in our conversations. I have got so much from the visualisations, they gave me really clear insights about what brings me calm and happiness. Noticing that these types of tools are helpful to me is really powerful.

Before qualifying as a life coach I spent over 20 years in a successful global corporate career, in a variety of different roles across various industries, as well as a successful career within the education sector.
On the business side, the types of organisations I worked for (and worked with as my clients) included Mercedes, Publicis, Renault, IBM/Lexmark, Australia’s Public Works & Services, and Xerox Global Services.
My roles were predominantly within Marketing, Sales, and Service Development, and were very much results-driven, with people and relationships at the core. Central to my roles were communication, training, motivation, and leadership, which I loved.
It was after a major life event in my mid 20s that shook me to the core, that I felt a huge urge to get out of the corporate machine and ‘give something back’.
So I changed direction completely and took on a post graduate degree, and headed into the education sector. I taught and managed business studies at secondary school level, in a variety of inner city and suburban schools on full-time, supply, and part-time bases.
Over the last 25 years my life has been interspersed with periods working in the corporate world, in education, and a few years of career breaks to be with my two gorgeous children.
All of this has led me to where I am today, working for myself, with a mission to help as many women as I can through my life learnings and professional experience as a life coach. Help you to get clarity on who you really are, and what you really want (direction and purpose), energised and confident to live the life that truly makes you feel fulfilled.
We know that ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped.
I believe that if you’re ready and willing to embrace change (it doesn’t need to be big), and drop that first pebble, you can achieve everything you want.
“Life is a journey, not a destination” as they say…
What drew you to coaching?
10 years ago I was enjoying the fruits of a successful career, pregnant with my first miracle child after finally meeting my soulmate. What should have made this even sweeter was that I’d overcome crippling grief in my 20’s of losing my mum, and survived brutal breast cancer treatment in my early 30’s.
But deep down I was so unhappy.
I felt like I didn’t fit into the corporate world anymore and it was meaningless, I felt like no one understood me, I had this nagging feeling that something was missing but I didn’t know what. I felt stuck and alone.
And GUILTY! How could I let myself feel like this when I had so much?
I was at a crossroads and I needed help. Which is when I found my first coach.
And it was life changing.
For the first time that I could remember someone was listening to me, without interrupting, without bias or judgement. Getting the best out of me, wanting the best for me.
What ultimately drew me to becoming a life coach was wanting to help other women benefit from the power and magic of coaching.
And so I’m passionate about creating a supportive space for all women, for you, so that you can figure out who you are now and what you want, and be the hand on your back as you go confidently in the direction of your dreams, and live the life that truly fills you up.
I’m passionate about enabling women to access the power and magic of coaching, to this end there are a few different ways we can work together.
