Helen Sanderson works as an interior designer, therapist and professional organiser and is an expert on how our spaces reflect our psyche. Her passion and work centre on her interest in the symbols and metaphors of home, holistic interior design and her belief that personal change must come from a careful consideration of both our physical environment and our inner world.
Helen has trained for many years in psychotherapy, qualified as an interfaith minister and is a lifelong student of Zen. She integrates these interests and her interiors background into Ministry of Calm: a design practice specialising in spaces that support mindfulness, spiritual contemplation and inner calm. She creates beautiful, healing spaces that support people to manage the stresses of modern life. Her clients include Guardian News and Media, Marie Curie Hospice, 38 Degrees and Gloucestershire and Exeter universities.
A recognised authority on mindful design and decluttering, Helen speaks regularly at events such as Ideal Home Show, Grand Designs Live and 100% Design. She has been interviewed on BBC Radio London and featured in the Telegraph, Mail, Financial Times, Cosmopolitan, Red, Reader’s Digest, and Good Housekeeping
