Feedback from Helen’s Surgeries:

“I certainly think the hour is value for money. I got useful feedback.” – Sally Dutton, Southwell

“I really enjoyed the Surgery, and found it very useful – well worth the money. I liked the way she had read my poems through thoroughly in advance, and knew them well and had good suggestions ready.” – Jan Bay-Petersen, Cambridge 

“I enjoyed my time with Helen hugely and if a price has to be put upon wise words, it was excellent value. Many thanks, and do please pass on my thanks to Helen for her infectious enthusiasm and enviable ability to ‘stand back’. ” – Martin Childs, London
