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.
The DiSC profiling leadership training we received in the Central Leadership Team of our MAT enabled us to work more closely and effectively as a team, considering our individual and group behaviour traits. Helen played an integral role in supporting knowledge gathering regarding our communication styles as individuals and as a team. She helped us understand how we can effectively work together to meet shared and common goals. As we work with a large number of other professionals, including a variety of post holders, the DiSC profiling provided us with a list of our own traits and qualities we could reflect upon, considering how these could be received by other individuals. Having the opportunity to watch videos, which Helen supported us to evaluate, helped exemplify how leadership teams communicate effectively, considering the different behaviours and personality styles of others. Helen used a variety of methods, including role-play activities, to help us practice how we should communicate with other professionals. We have since reflected on the training and put this into practice; this has resulted in the successful consideration of other leadership styles during our team meetings and has supported with us communicating effectively with other members of our MAT. I would recommend Helen’s DiSC profiling training to any team wishing to explore how to work more effectively as a collaborative group to meet shared goals.
A quick note of thanks to Helen for delivering a series of thought provoking workshops to our Senior Leadership Team. Myself and the team found the sessions very informative, interactive and engaging. Helen challenged the way we view and deal with many of the challenges leaders of a business face day to day with their teams. Helen has a very positive mindset and not afraid to share her own experiences as she works thru the sessions. Thank you again for a series of great workshops.
As a small charity we have always focussed our training on how best to support our team to support the beneficiaries we serve. As we work in a very challenging environment, we recognised that we needed to support our staff team with some training that was specifically just for them. Following a recommendation we approached Helen and I am so glad we did! Helen helped us to identify which of her sessions would suit our diverse team best, and we plumped for the bite-size session, How to achieve a calmer life & cope with challenges.
The session lasted a couple of hours and everyone came away with a number of strategies and techniques to draw on to help them in both their personal and working lives. The feedback was unanimously positive and everyone asked when Helen could come back again. Thanks Helen!

If I may do a massive shout out and thank you to Helen Dos Santos NLPMP MPSA who clearly works with magic!! As a self-confessed control freak with tendencies to “what if” ever scenario I can often find life a little overwhelming. Over the years, I’ve tried a number of techniques to help manage overwhelm, excessive thoughts and to relax and I’m incredibly grateful to Helen for sharing “Havening” with me. Within just 1 week, this technique has already allowed me to calm my impromptu panic, regulate my breathing and let go. I’ve also learned to reframe my thinking (this is still a work in progress) from negative statements, replacing them with more positive language that helps keep me and those around me more motivated, calm, confident, and determined.
Whilst I understand there are no overnight fixes, having techniques in our toolbox to work on is such a positive step!
I can’t recommend Horizon Coaching highly enough and I loved that there were no pushy sales, clearly bespoke to my needs and the support was the length of time that was appropriate for me.
Helen has worked within our MAC delivering workshops and coaching to staff, ranging from topics such as The Impact of Words, Achieve a Calmer Life, and Positively Managing Worry, as well as one-to-one leadership coaching. I am incredibly grateful to Helen for her dedication and commitment. She is approachable and compassionate, enabling conversation to flow, which makes people feel at ease.
The impact that she has had on colleagues has been phenomenal. I have seen colleague’s confidence grow and flourish following sessions with Helen. Some have felt that they have been able to address previous traumas through Havening Techniques and Timeline Therapy and others were able to prioritise and tackle work/life balance much better.
I would recommend Helen’s workshops to anyone. In the fast-paced world in which we live, Helen ensures that we take time for ourselves and overall, makes us feel like we can be more productive by putting well-being at the forefront, whatever our role. Her work is invaluable.
Helen really helped me to reduce my negative thoughts and put a positive spin on them. As an 18 year old I was under a lot of different stresses from college, relationships and just moving into adulthood but Helen’s methods enabled me to be able to calm myself in stressful situations, to tackle the roots of my issues and to have a more positive and beneficial mindset moving forward into the next chapter of my life. I would recommend Helen’s coaching for anyone and I have specifically found the ‘What If…’ method useful.
Great first session. Really enjoyable and put me in a positive frame of mind for the rest of the day and days to follow now that I have some new techniques. Thank you Torus for organising these and the other 13 sessions to come.
I found Helen very soothing. She put me at ease from the off and whilst an online group session (which can often feel impersonal), Helen made the session feel very personal.
Helen was very positive, charismatic and engaging throughout the session. Very personable by sharing own stories and you feel you are in a trusted environment.
Helen delivered the session in a very informative easy to understand way. Helen is very easy on the ear and you just listen.
It was excellent workshop – one of the best
Helen delivered a series of workshops to both our Senior Leadership Team as well as all the staff. Her training is thought provoking and encourages reflection and challenges fixed mindsets. Our staff have now become more open to thinking about how we cope with our own mental health to ensure we can do our best for our students.
My son has suffered with depression and bouts of anger due to unresolved trauma for a large part of his life. Over the last few months I had become increasingly concerned for his mental well-being after witnessing recent outbursts of anger followed by long periods of silence. Medical intervention had been of very little help and as a mother I felt helpless. Helens’ number was given to me by someone who had used her services and couldn’t praise her enough.
My son has recently finished his coaching with Helen and is a changed man. He tells me Helen is a wonderful lady who has changed his outlook. He now feels positive and optimistic about life.
If anyone is suffering with mental health issues or knows someone that is please contact Helen. She really can make a difference.
