Helen has been a Katalytik employee for the past six years.   

Her background lies within Play therapy, which involved working with chronically and terminally ill children and their families.   

She spent five rewarding years at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where along with the Community Nursing team she set up a one-of-a-kind service visiting families in the comfort of their homes during a tough time in their lives, assisting them through play therapy and counselling to adjust to a new normal.   

Helen then relocated to Christchurch and gave birth to twins, who are now 21 years old.   

As Community Manager at Katalytik, Helen is your first point of contact and supports Jan with workshops and administration.  

Helen has always had a passion for developing people to be the best form of themselves, and this year she participated in the Psychology of Talent course lead by Simon Hurry which is a global online course aimed at connecting people’s psychology to their strengths and talents.   

Helen has a particular interest in teenagers and young adults. She coaches Engineering students at Brunel university on 1-1 basis.    

Helen believes that every child and young person should cherish their unique individual qualities and prides herself in promoting positivity, knowing she has the ability to put clients and team members at ease.
