My experience, my passions

Water has had a profound impact on my life and I am at my happiest when swimming in nature.


I’m Helen an open water swimming coach with the STA (Swimming Teachers Association). Growing up in Cornwall I have been lucky to swim extensively in the sea on the north and south coasts and have spent a large portion of my life in the water, finding places to swim in all the places I've lived from the lochs of Scotland to rivers in Russia. I currently live in London and am swimming all year round at Hampstead Heath Women's Pond.


I competed at a national level as a swimmer (and still have a Cornish record for sprint freestyle), which gives me a familiarity and ease in the water. I'm a psychotherapist and practise meditation daily. My passion is for swimming experiences that nourish.
