Fifteen years ago Helen came across the 'hands on' healing of Reiki
spent many years training to become a Master, and uses it
daily in her
own life. She also trains others and gives healing sessions. She found
that the increasing awareness of energy within everything influenced
her attitudes towards health. With her flair for creating beautiful
schemes and a natural ability to manage and organise the practical side
of an interior design practice she looked for a way to further her
understanding of the interaction of life energies within this field.
Her aim was to ensure that clients would not only love their home or
business, but would also benefit in terms of their well-being and
success. This led
her to undertaking further Feng Shui
training and qualifying as a
Practitioner with the Feng Shui Academy the Feng Shui Agency. She has
found Feng Shui to be
an immensely powerful tool to help people improve their lives and uses
it within businesses and homes. She is also a committee member of the
Earth Energies Group of the British
Society of Dowsers,
and uses the practice of dowsing in her work. She also runs a
yoga/meditation group in Dorset.
What our clients
On the transformation of a derelict building into a complimentary
'You have created
an enchanting balance of clinical yet
warm and tranquil rooms, visually stunning and guaranteed to help
people feel good. Very well done'
Dr Gaymer, Complementary Clinic in Milbourne Port, Somerset.
transformed my newly acquired home from a
rather dingy old cottage into a beautiful & welcoming home. My
friends all adore it! Her ideas have been transformational. She was
friendly, helpful, efficient and a pleasure to work with. I can
thoroughly recommend her services'
Mrs P Goss, Dorset.
Helen did a considerable amount of work in our 300 year-old cottage. We
liked our house before Helen's intervention. We have now fallen in love
with it all over again! One of the many pleasures working with Helen
was just that it was a partnership, even though she was very much the
expert. It was also helpful to know that when it came to
kitchen design she is a wife and mother who understands that the space
needs to work as well as look good, (the kitchen is stylish,
comfortable and practical). She came up with colour solutions
that we would not have dreamed of. Our safe black and white
house is now lovely shades of blue. Soft chalk-based colours that fit
so well, (if the house could speak it would be raising three cheers!).
To compliment the colours Helen managed to source fittings that we
would never have come across and go with the curtains she suggested. We
probably won't do any more work on the house for another 10 years at
least- but when we do Helen had better still be around!
Mr & Mrs Burridge. Aylesbury.
'Helen captured my
vision for the clinic fully ... Helen
is charming, empathetic and an enjoyable person to work along side. Her
colour scheme and design has made this clinic stand out in Dorset. It
has been photographed, written about and patients appreciate daily what
she has achieved.'
Mrs A. Schreiber, Gillingham, Dorset.
"Since living in our new house, there had been family upsets, poor
health, and financial strains. I asked Helen if there was anything she
could do to change the atmosphere in the home and promote a healthier
After a thorough assessment of the space, two days of clearing and
just a few minor adjustments the whole house feels calmer and more
homely. All of the family are happier and my health
well as new career opportunities being made available to us. The house
just feels like a nicer place to live. Helen's common sense approach,
combining the ancient discipline with modern practical design works
wonders. Highly recommended."
Mrs L. Eason, Wincanton, Somerset.
"Helen visited me in my cottage recently and my expectations, I have to
say, weren't particularly high. My problem was sleep related and I
spoke with Helen frankly as a last resort. Within a very short space of
time from her arrival she identified a geopathic stress line which ran
through the property, directly over where I slept. Since that day,
following a couple of hours work by Helen, my sleep has improved
immensely to normal standards. I have no idea what Helen did, but there
is no question in my mind that whatever it was is directly attributable
to me feeling fitter, stronger and far more energized these
also gave some very valuable Feng Shui and interior design advice which
my wife and I
implemented and which have had some very positive benefits in the way
the cottage now feels.... spooky! I have no hesitation in recommending
Helen's unique talents.
Mr. G .Shilton, Tarrent Gunville, Dorset.
"I had been moved into my house over a year, yet didn't feel as if it
was my home. I felt just like a visitor. I just didn't love it.
Helen came round and did some work on my house; she etherically
cleansed it and suggested moving certain things around to particular
places. She then gave me some instructions to do some cures myself
which I had to do for a few weeks after she left.
After three days I really felt a difference in the house- after three
weeks I really began to feel at home, and after three months I was
beginning to love the space and felt much happier there.
I really recommend this work if anyone is not feeling at home in their
