Hear from the people i’ve helped
Hear about the difference I’ve made to so many lives, in so many ways, from the people I’ve supported on their journey through so many walks of life. Employees suffering with stress, depression, anxiety, or who have suffered a bereavement that have needed time off work. Teenagers struggling with angst and examination worries. Returning soldiers and veterans adapting to civilian life. Business leaders and educational teams undergoing uncertainty and constant change management. Transforming teams from responding to mental health issues, to understanding them and practising good mental health techniques to their own, and their organisation’s benefit.
Here are the thoughts of the people I’ve supported.
Helen ran a great DISC session for our team which has really helped improve internal communication and team relationships. Helen is a very engaging trainer.
We have valued the insights we have gained from our DISC training and are using this within our Senior team. Highly enjoyable sessions Helen thank you.
The Management and Directors of our company worked with Helen doing DiSC Training with the purpose of understanding our own leadership styles and the style of others within our company. The training was very beneficial in learning the different leadership styles in more depth and how we can adapt our style to best communicate and support others to get the best out of a situation. All participants have left the session feeling more self-aware and we were all given booklets to refer to for future use. Helen delivered the training in a very relaxed way, we all felt comfortable, and it made for an engaging and insightful day. Thank you, Helen.
Our Multi Academy Trust commissioned Helen to work with all of our Headteachers and Senior Leaders with the aim of developing our leadership skills. For the Headteachers the day of group training was followed up with a one to one coaching session.
I thoroughly enjoyed the group DISC training day; it made me reflect on my own natural leadership style and helped me to consider ways of adapting this in order to best support and challenge each member of my team.
However, the most powerful part of the programme was the one to one session that followed. In honesty I didn’t know what to expect from this and was slightly apprehensive about attending. This turned out to be probably the most powerful piece of CPD that I have had in a long time. Helen is highly skilled in coaching and made me reflect deeply on some aspects of my professional and personal life; she made me feel very relaxed and we talked about some things that I have only ever shared with very few people. She also provided techniques and resources to support me. I definitely left the session feeling more self-confident and assured. This may be pure co-incidence (or maybe not!) but I also finished in the prizes in my weekend golf competition for the first time in 5 years! Thank you Helen, a truly inspiring session.
Before meeting Helen I was a shell of my former self, I would self-sabotage, overthink, respond with my primary emotion of anger to each and every situation and I was inadvertently destroying my marriage, career and hurting my daughter by not being the mother that my daughter deserved. Then came this absolutely wonderful lady with a beautiful energy and light, Helen has completely changed my life, with her techniques she has irradicated the primary response of anger/frustration, she has worked on my Triggers and helped me to let go of previous traumas enough to now begin to live life the way that I should be.
I now enjoy the little things, like taking my daughter to the park and having time to spend with her, going on dates with my husband and instead of meeting him with anger, I now meet him with pure love and appreciation and see the man that he is.
Helen, you have saved my life, truly. Without you I don’t know where my life would be right now but I do know that I would still be in survival mode and not achieving my potential fully. You are an absolute angel and I will be forever grateful for giving me the tools needed to enjoy life and change my mindset.
If anyone ever has any doubts about the benefits of NLP and Havening then please re-read this lady’s testimonials including this one and see just how many peoples’ lives she had transformed.
Thank you again Helen.
Spending time with Helen has given me the tools to look at my life with positive attitude and to use that positivity to make the changes needed to become a healthier, happier & slimmer person. I have already lost 5lbs in my first week and my glass is now definitely half full and I will make sure it is never half empty again.
A massive thank you to Helen Dos Santos for taking time out of her busy schedule and investing in the HM Forces on presenting a full day of Mental Health and Coaching techniques to service personnel.
I cannot praise and recommend Helen highly enough to anyone or business, company or organisation who want to make a big difference within their workplace and their people to enhance output.
Helen delivered an excellent, exciting brief which captured the soldiers, and they could not speak any highly of Helen and how she got the information and coaching techniques across which service personnel will use in years to come.
Thank you so much Helen and anyone looking to use Horizons Coaching don’t think twice as you will be missing out. Highly recommend.
My colleague invited Helen to our Barracks in North Yorkshire to deliver a well-being and resilience package to service personnel, focusing on mental and emotional health. The presentation was outstanding and Helen is an extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and confident speaker, maintaining the audience’s attention throughout and keeping them engaged with activities. Having a military affiliation herself, Helen was able to connect well with our soldiers and officers, providing a much-needed wellbeing session during a busy period for our establishment. I would thoroughly recommend Helen and know she has made a huge impact on our workforce, adding immense value to how we move forward as a team. A true professional with a great work ethic and a dedication to helping others.
Following the passing of my dear father, 8 months on I was still feeling lost. I cried often and was agitated and angry most of the time. I was unable to cope with my normal day to day life including my job. I was, at breaking point in all aspects of my life.
Helen was recommended to me and at first, I was sceptical and reluctant to attend. Following my initial consultation, I immediately felt at ease and knew that coaching could, help me. Following the Havening and Timeline Therapy plus additional techniques I can now say with confidence that I feel that coaching would benefit the wellbeing of everyone.
Since completing my 3 coaching sessions with Helen, I am now able to reframe my thoughts and cope better with my grief and anxiety. My confidence has returned, and I have gained more resilience. The tools and techniques provided by Helen are now a stable in my daily life and I feel that without them I would not be where I am today, which is a much more pleasant place than I was previously experiencing.
Thank you, Helen, for being so calm, non-judgemental and personable throughout my journey.
Completing the DiSC profile to understand more about our approach to leadership has made a big difference for our school and our trust. It has provided an insight into our strengths as a team of headteachers and senior leaders and highlighted ways in which we need to adjust in order to work and communicate really flexibly.
Working with Helen has been highly supportive and insightful. Her deep understanding of personality, together with her rich experience of working across sectors, ensured really interesting and engaging training.
