Workshops and events
Be at home with yourself
Do you find you can’t truly relax and enjoy your home or feel that it’s not fully supporting you?
My talks and workshops will help you understand what’s at the root of the problem. Discover what your home is telling you, so you can create a more nurturing environment that really reflects the person you want to be.
I also offer an interactive online course, sign up here.
Talk: The Secret Psychology of Clutter
I love helping people understand what’s going on in their home and their life. And most importantly to support them to start making powerful changes. So, I’m delighted to be speaking about the psychology of clutter and what your home can reveal about you at the 2021 Feng Shui conference on 10 July. Tickets to the event are available now
Just like your dreams, your home has things to tell you. It reflects important and hidden aspects of you, your past, your relationships and key issues in your life. Looking at it from a fresh perspective, you may also discover key things you need to address and reasons you might be stuck.
In this talk I’ll bring together what I’ve learned from 15 years of working in people’s homes to help them create beauty and order, combined with insights from my psychotherapy training and 30-year journey of personal development.
MEET THE TEACHER
I’m Helen Sanderson
It fascinates me how our homes reflect our wellbeing and state of mind. I combine 15 years of experience transforming cluttered homes and designing wellbeing spaces with training in psychotherapy, Zen and mindfulness. I love to help people understand their relationship with their homes and to create harmonious spaces that support calm and mindfulness so they can focus on what really matters to them.
Four great reasons to join me
1. A workshop like no other
These workshops bring together what I’ve learned from 15 years working in people’s homes, combined with my psychotherapy training. They are unique and insightful events that will help you to relate to your home in a new way. Learn to better understand what’s going on in your home and your life. And most importantly, be inpsired to start making powerful changes.
2. Insight and shift in mindset
The insight and understanding you gain will help you see your home through fresh eyes. Just imagine returning home feeling inspired and ready to transform it into a place that truly supports you and reflects the person you want to grow into.
3. A day of sharing, reflection, pause and insight
Clutter can provoke feelings of overwhelm and shame. Feelings that are best talked about honestly in a safe, confidential space with others that face similar challenges. However, please relax – there’s no pressure to share anything you don’t feel comfortable with. Participate as much or as little as you like.
4. Finding the seeds you want to plant
Most people find under the clutter is something that wants to be nurtured. I’m confident this workshop will reveal valuable things to you and help you find the motivation to move forward onto the next stage of your journey.
Frequently asked questions
Is the workshop interactive?
Yes, this is an interactive workshop, we will do some drawing, writing, talking and sharing. All activities are optional, however, the more you put in, the more you will get out of it.
Will I learn how to declutter and organise my home?
We focus on understanding the psychology that might be underneath the clutter and the order in your home. You will learn some tips about how to create more space and order in your home, although this is not a practical ‘how to declutter’ workshop.

Helen will aim to answer any individual questions that arise as a result of the activities and exercises during the workshop.

What people say about my workshops
‘I enjoyed getting deep insights into objects and our relationships with them. And was fascinated with how much I could learn about myself from understanding my relationship with objects around me. I enjoyed the workshop thoroughly and it has definitely got me thinking about my behaviour, decisions and actions. ‘
‘Helen led a warm, accepting and encouraging workshop. I gained insights about things I’d been carrying for a while that I have now let go of. This feels incredibly liberating. Her unique and carefully facilitated exercises were a catalyst for subtle but important changes.’
‘I really enjoyed this fun, interactive and insightful session. Helen made it easy to engage and share to reap more benefit. The mixture of storytelling, practical exercises and reflection time was just perfect! I highly recommend it.’
‘Lovely insights into how my surroundings influence my peace of mind. Too often we accept the niggles of our homes without focusing on what we could achieve by fixing the problem. Helen offers great advice on creating the type of homes we wish to live in and the atmospheres we’d like to create.’
