My Story

A short introduction from Helen Walker,

Beauty for Ashes and Life skills mentor 

My name is Helen and I'm the founder of Beauty for Ashes.

I offer life skills coaching for men, women, organisations, clubs, churches and more, enabling and equipping you with skills that will change your life.

This course was created out of my own life experiences, challenges, and hardships. It was a life destined for a road of destruction, living on welfare, daily poverty, life with a mentally ill mother, battling with eating disorders, emotional trauma, and a learning difficulty (dyslexia, labelled as remedial due to this). 

I was in lodgings from age 15, with no direction, no positive input or guidance, and extreme lack of self worth. Daily I battled with fears and anxiety and as a result, all of this baggage affected my identity; I found it hard to trust people. As a knock on effect of stress my health began to suffer, resulting in skin problems and much more.

But then I discovered ways to change my life from negative to positive...and now I want to pass my experiences onto others.
