Mum of two, Helen Norbury, 46 from Amersham, Buckinghamshire, is a woman on a mission to help us break down the lives we think were laid out for us, to help us all flip the script and reconnect with the ‘free spirit’ within us, that we were born with, in order to find our true purpose that we have probably spent years hiding from!
Using mixed method approaches, such as; Hypnotherapy, Brainspotting, Theta Healing and Positive Psychology… Helen is here to help us all make the positive imprint we are intended to make on the world.
Having been conditioned to ‘be responsible’ throughout her life, starting when she was just 6 years old, having to help bring up her young siblings when her mum was sectioned; Helen constantly put other people before herself and learnt to live her life in the shadows, with a plastered on fake smile. She was told that ‘emotions are not welcome’, and her thoughts and voice were silenced and suppressed.
Throughout most of Helen’s life there has been a constant thread of not feeling good enough, she had felt like a failure since she was a child, but her corporate career boomed and she became a thought leader in the field of Business Leadership and Improvement. In her successful six-figure corporate career, she worked on a number of high-profile, hugely successful business transformation initiatives.
So why have I chosen this path?
Helen’s parents passed away within almost a year of each other, when Helen was becoming a mum herself, after years struggling with fertility. With very little support and constantly feeling scared that she was going to be found out, scared she was going to be sectioned like her mum was, scared she was doing it all wrong, scared she was being watched… Helen was on the brink of a burnout; but her marriage was also suffering and so she embarked on a new challenge whilst raising her two young children, and built up a business with her now ex-husband to 3/4 of a £million – but the inevitable happened and she eventually burnt-out trying to make everyone else happy.
Having experienced domestic violence in her family home as a child, suffering bullying and abuse at boarding school, which led to eating disorders and mental health conditions… Helen realised that she could no longer suppress a lifetime of hurt and traumatic responses; not only was she suffering from burn-out, she had been suffering a long time with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (c-PTSD) and she knew she needed to heal. So, she embarked on her own self-discovery journey following her divorce, and went on to heal from the trauma of her childhood and adult life, which included; depression, secret drinking, bereavement, body dysmorphia and suicidal thoughts…
Helen says; “For many years, I thought I was worthless – but, now I know my true value and purpose. I have fine-tuned and developed practical, experiential, emotionally intelligent based leadership skills, based on real life experiences, unlike much of the “text book” leadership styles.”
“And now? I have found a confidence I never knew existed. This confidence allows me to go through fear. I left my full-time corporate career to focus on CREATING my purpose-led business, with a deep sense of trust in myself that I could create the life I desired. I live a passionate life, I see through the lens of love and I have abundant energy to create the LEGACY that I know is inside me. And my relationship with my children is better everyday, I have never felt healthier and everyone who sees me says I am reverse ageing! I am fully embodying life and business LEADERSHIP.”
“I believe that you are not put on the world for no reason. Every single person has a “job to do” or a mark to leave if you prefer. I work with my clients on three levels (healing trauma, unveiling vision and becoming all of them) so they can maximise their potential in every area of their life. I have helped clients excel in their careers; their businesses; their health; their wealth; their happiness and their relationships.”
