Helena was an art consultant before working in part-time business roles while bringing up her son. She has degrees in History of Art/English, and Graphic Design. She has practised CBT techniques for thirty years as a patient, initially attending a 1:1 course in Isaac Marks’ department at the Institute of Psychiatry. She has since updated her techniques via three local courses. She manages GAD and OCD herself, very successfully.
Her cartoons have appeared in workshops for the NHS and the Business Psychology Company, and in company magazines. They appear regularly in the weekly bellringing magazine, The Ringing World. Most recently, she has finished illustrating a children’s book Nicolas and the Six Bells by David Ackerman, published by Gabriel Books.
