Helen began her training at Shepton Mallet Adult Learning in 2002 and completed her training in 2006. Helen has always had an interest in holistic therapy and thinks that this probably started when she was a child mixing flower petals in her parent’s garden!
Helen is experienced in working with people with cancer and as well as working at Neal’s Yard Remedies Helen is also a member of the therapy team and RNID Poolemead in Bath providing massage and aromatherapy treatments for deaf and deaf/blind adults with additional learning difficulties.
Helen finds all areas of her work extremely rewarding and – as she puts it – finally found out what she wanted to do when she left school 20 years after she had left!

Since I first trained as a holistic therapist, I have constantly updated my skill and knowledge. Now I offer a wide range of holistic treatments and, depending on your needs or conditions I carefully choose your treatment plan with you. All my treatments are tailor made to ensure you have a truly holistic experience.
I use combinations of different techniques for my massages which allow me to range from a firm pressure to a delicate touch, which helps to release the tension seated in any depth of tissue.
I have an extensive knowledge of aromatherapy and use this for my treatments. Aromatherapy and holistic treatments work wonderfully together and I take pride in this combination which helps not only reduce physical problems but may also bring emotional relief as well. My treatments are always based on ‘de-stressing’ and you can feel both physically and mentally lighter after my treatment.
Maternity and gynaecological care also feature heavily in my range of treatments. My extensive training in this field brings a deep understanding of the needs of women and enables me to extend my treatments to help with hormonal, physical and emotional changes for any stages of women’s life.
