“I am a mother of two with anxiety that became worse after the birth of my second child. This kept me indoors for several months, unable to visit even the grocery store, or doctor's appointments which had to be over the phone. I suffered from almost daily panic attacks. In my search for healing I found Helena on the Bach Flower Essences Practitioner website. Her name stood out to me and I reached out hesitantly as I was scared of leaving the house but she consulted with me over the phone and guided me to add a few essences to the mix I had already prepared for myself. This made a huge change - since working with Helena, I have hosted a party, gone to the park, stores etc. Helena knew exactly which essences would be best for me and her calming vibration over the phone has helped with my healing process. I am beyond grateful for her knowledge and calming presence."
Bach Flower Essences
Created in the 1930’s by Dr. Edward Bach, a medical doctor and bacteriologist, the Bach Flower Essences are 38 plant and flower based formulas that can help us manage the emotional demands of everyday life by bringing negative attitudes and feelings back into balance and perspective. By helping to restore and maintain emotional balance, the Bach Flower Essences free the body’s own healing functions and help to promote overall wellness.
Dr. Bach developed the essences to provide a way for the lay person to bring about his or her own healing. Each of the 38 essences are based on a particular mood or emotion and help to relieve the changes and stresses of everyday life. The essences vibrationally tune us back into our own individual path in life. They are taken internally and are safe, effective and free from side effects. A blend of essences can be used temporarily for a certain situation you are going through, or we can go deeper into healing past situations with a longer term project. They can also be a gentle support as you go through other therapies or healing.
When you feel fulfilled, happy and positive, you tend to enjoy better health. You get more out of life and can give more to your friends and family. However, the emotional demands of everyday life can make it difficult to maintain a consistent, positive mental attitude. Bach Flower Essences can help.

Family Constellation Work
Some of our greatest difficulties (addictions, depression, anger, finances, illness) are taken on unconsciously as part of our hidden love and loyalty towards someone in our family. This can even go back several generations. Through the constellation process, hidden dynamics are revealed and used as tools to bring balance back into the family system. By honoring each member’s fate without judgment, the orders of love are restored, allowing love and strength to flow, nourish, and heal your soul. Much of Constellation work is about healing inherited trauma and gaining the support of the ancestors from whence came our life. Once we have worked through our personal issues, we often experience much growth and energy for life with the strength of our ancestors behind us, and we can move forward into a fullness of living.
This process was developed by renowned German therapist, Bert Hellinger. Helena has studied this work for 18 years with Bert Hellinger and other teachers. The work is done in a group setting where an individual chooses to work on a specific issue in his or her life. The client chooses people from the group to represent certain family members who are then set up intuitively in what is called a “constellation." The representatives simply remain present to their experiences. As they are placed, a “knowing field” is formed and the representatives begin to receive actual feelings of the person they are representing. It is not role-playing and there is no acting out. The representatives report their feelings to the facilitator when asked, or movements are made by the representatives from a deep soul experience.
From the information obtained through this process, family members who may have been lost or excluded in some way in the past are brought into the space. Through simple yet powerful sentences and soul movements directed by the facilitator, we move towards resolution. We become more able to enter strongly into own lives and hold our rightful place in our current family. Balance is brought to ourselves, our work, and our community. We are freed of burdens not our own, and are able to step into our future with strength and support from our ancestors.
Identity Constellations -
An evolution of Family or Systemic Constellations
The method is similar in that 'constellations' are still set up in the Knowing Field but the focus is on the Identity of the client through what is called the Sentence of Intention.
