Welcome to my Portfolio!
My name is Helen. I'm a professional musician and more recently, a website maker. I started by working mainly with musicians but have since stepped outside the music world, working with an osteopath, a psychotherapist and a parenting coach, among others.
Learning about these varied professions is fascinating and I love collaborating with people to produce a website entirely personal to them.
I use the WiX platform and am proud to be a WiX Partner.
Have a look at my portfolio and some of my testimonials!
If you would like to discuss having your own website, just drop me an email.
Cricklade Osteopaths is an established and thriving practice based in South Gloucestershire. The existing site needed updating. The request was for a clean and easy to navigate site with plenty of information about Osteopathy and the other treatments available at the clinic, plus the ability to book appointments online.
'Our old website was in need of updating. After giving Helen a rough description of what we envisaged, she came up with a beautiful, clean and fresh design which managed to be clear and easy to navigate without being overly complicated or fussy. Feedback from our patient base has been 100% positive, and many new patients say it was the website that first attracted them. We couldn't be happier!'

'Helen made my website and the whole experience was a delight. She has a gift for translating one's own personal ideas into something ultimately professional, beautiful to look at, and easy to use. She is very clear and always happy to make changes and try ideas out. The end result way exceeded my expectations and I thoroughly recommend her as a superb website creator'

Skaila Kanga, one of the UK's best known harpists, wanted a record of her long and illustrious career. This comprehensive website covers the period 1968 - 2021 and includes several photo galleries.
'Helen is the reason I now have a website, something I never thought possible! She has the ability to allow me to express through technology, the many aspects of my life by being so receptive, infinitely patient and such a kind friend. She’s also an incredibly gifted musician with an insight into our complex musical minds! How she combines that with being a creative technological wizard is a miracle! Thank you Helen for the most amazing website!'

THE LITTLE MUSIC BAZAAR
I was asked to create an online shop showcasing and selling (as digital downloads) the compositions and arrangements of Catherine Howe, a successful viola player diversifying into other areas. Her work is aimed at beginner string players of all ages. Each piece comes complete with an audio version.
'I can’t thank Helen enough for the unbelievable amount of work she put in to create this website for me. Her dedication to the task was quite extraordinary. She managed to deliver anything I asked for and as a result has created something absolutely fantastic.
Helen was wonderful to work with: kind, patient and fun. But what stood out the most was the unwavering support she gave to me personally during the whole process'.
The UK/US violinist Ishani Bhoola wanted a new site that reflected all aspects of her diverse career, from performer to educator to artist manager. Part of the project was to design a logo for her charitable trust, The Waverley Ensemble.
'Helen has produced me a fabulous new website and a logo! She is so easy to work with, helpful, patient, very dedicated. A joy to work with. I cannot recommend her enough'

the london parent coach
A parenting coach asked me to make a website for her new business. A challenge with a new location based business is getting found on Google. After some careful SEO work I was very pleased to see this site on page one in Google search results only a few weeks after going live.
'Helen is an excellent listener. She really heard everything I was describing to her and presented many options for me to choose from. She is extremely patient and accommodating. I kept changing my mind, not being sure what I was aiming for. Helen has very good artistic taste for colour and design and was able to capture perfectly the ideas that I had in my mind. I would highly recommend Helen to anybody who wants to have a beautiful and outstanding website to feel proud of'
