Thank you Helen for your ever present smile and cheeky demeanour,

Helen was the behind the scenes right back in the beginning when the Psychosomatic Therapy College(AIB) was becoming an RTO.
She took raw, out there, source material and converted it to RTO quality, helped to develop the format of Cert III- Diploma as government recognised certificates and was the expert go to lady when anything got curly always with a smile yet firm intent and committed to getting a result.

Thankyou Helen for holding the College's hand as I and many thousands of students have benefited.
I am thankful for our paths crossing so many years ago and being interested in my life whenever we met or connected on Facebook, it was a pleasure.

Dear, dear Helen. A great friend. We shared lots of laughs and a wine or two. An amazing spiritual woman who knew how to open her heart to share all the love she had to give. She will be so sadly missed by so many. RIP dear friend. You will always have a place in my heart ❤️
