Workshops and talks
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.
Understanding the secret psychology of your home
Discover how your home is a reflection of you. A mirror of your past, your relationship with yourself and others, and of the key issues that are present for you. It can also reveal important things you need to address and ways your life might be stuck.
Just like your dreams, your home has important things to tell you.
This workshop is about starting to uncover some of the interconnections between your home and your inner life. How would you feel if you could really understand what was going on and how to change it?
Building a mindful relationship with your home and your possessions is deeply empowering. Without it, our homes and our lives can become about unconscious accumulation rather than conscious intention. I know you’ll find uncovering the clues in your home a fascinating process. And the insights will inspire you to build a deeper and more empowering relationship with your home.
I’ve helped hundreds of people like you understand what’s going on in their home and their life. And most importantly, I’ve supported them to start making powerful changes.
Most people start to see their 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.
I’d love you to join me and experience the magic for yourself.

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.
Here are four great reasons why you should join me:
1. A workshop like no other
These workshops bring together what I’ve learned from15 years of working in the intimate spaces of 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. I’ve helped hundreds of people like you really understand what’s going on in their home and their life. And most importantly, I’ve supported them 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
I have learned that having 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. Having said that, please relax and know that there’s no pressure to share anything you don’t feel comfortable with. You can 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.
Do you offer any discounts?
You can buy early bird tickets at a reduced cost. I don’t want money to be a barrier to you attending my events, so I also have a small number of bursaries available. Please email me to apply.
Will I get one-on-one advice from Helen?
Helen will aim to answer any individual questions that arise as a result of the activities and exercises during the workshop. Bear in mind that these are group events, so she will share her focus with all participants. If you would like more detailed individual advice, Helen offers a free coaching call which you can book here.
Do you offer workshops outside of London and the UK?
I run a webinar that you can join from anywhere in the world. Currently, the in-person workshops are in London only.
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.’
