Testimonials

Surviving Me is just the most amazing support for someone in the situation I have found myself in since being diagnosed with breast cancer. Thank you, Helen, for all your support and for the wonderful techniques and coping strategies you have taught me along the way. Without them, and the CDs, which I have used constantly, I wouldn’t have been able to relax and sleep, and cope with everything I had to face. It has made everything so much easier and allowed me to focus on living each day.

I find Helen’s ‘Sleep relaxation’ CD so relaxing. It helps me to rest and go to sleep. Also, it enables me to get back to sleep when I wake during the night. The voice is so soothing and calming and makes me feel so comfortable.

Rachel Adamson

I started using Helen’s CDs when I was living in Mauritius two years ago. I was struggling with stress and anxiety as my condition was progressing. I was undiagnosed at the time but the fear hanging over me was that of Motor Neurone Disease. I was terrified and unable to function. The CDs helped me so much – when I was trying to relax and sleep, and when I had to undergo intense and frightening nerve conduction tests when I was at my lowest. I loved the visualization CD particularly and the sleep CD was amazing. I love Helen’s voice – it is so calming and soothing.

After my late wife, Rachel, was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer in 2012, not only did she have to deal with grieving for the life she once knew, she also faced the daily challenge of how to accept and cope with her new life. Surviving Me was inspired by Rachel’s journey (and many others) and is testament to Helen’s natural ability to care for others and a generous gift to those living with a life-changing diagnosis.
