Integral Master Coach™
Dental Trauma Release Expert & Therapist
I am here to empower you as a dental patient let go of any fear and embarrassment you might have, and to help you walk through the door to the dentist feeling calm and in control!
To help dental patients to find their inner calm is my great passion, and I draw on my many years of experience as a dentist in private practice, and then as a full time Integral Master Coach™ and Trauma Release Expert with specialist training in safely releasing past dental traumas.
My goal is to make my offerings here empowering, inspiring and interesting to you as a dental patient. You will find many tools and tips here from my background in coaching, therapy as well as dentistry. Fear creates more fear, and I want to help you turn that around:
To me, empowerment creates more empowerment and inner calm.
I also see with my clients that when they take charge of their fear in this area of dentistry they also end up feeling more empowered, confident and happy in other areas of their lives too.
When I was a dentist, my patients would hand me their power to feel safe and in charge of their fear.
I now want to hand that power back to you. To me, the two most important things to master your fear of the dentist is to prepare yourself for your dental visits at home and release the burdens from your past dental traumas.
It's time for you to deal with your fear once and for all, and I will teach you the map that you can apply in order to do just that.
You can now feel confident, empowered, in charge and finally get that beautiful smile you long for.
Or you can stop wasting wasting a huge amount of energy and worry to simply get yourself through the dentists' door.
Whatever your situation and specific fear with regards to dentistry, to be in charge and at ease with regards to dentistry is now within your reach.
Helping dental patients empower themselves and unburdening and healing past dental traumas is simply my huge passion of mine.
The reason being that there is a huge amount of fear and also energy that is actually stuck in the past when it comes to dental traumas or fearful believes dental patients can hold.
I help my clients resolve their past overwhelming experiences or beliefs they have picked up from others.
And by doing so - together with the client - I help these fearful parts of the client come into the present moment and this huge amount of energy can get released - and in fact be put to good use in other areas of your life!
A bit about me. I was born into a family of dentistry.
My dad was a gum disease specialist, my mum a dental nurse and one of my sisters also a dentist. So you might say my choice to become a dentist was genetic.
I realized early in my career, however, that I was equally interested in the person behind the teeth and how to help them with their fear and not just the teeth themselves.
Hence pursuing my passion for helping my patients more deeply I took the leap into coaching, certifying as an Integral Master Coach™ in 2011. From there I moved into specializing in treatment of trauma in the powerful methods of Somatic Experiencing® and Internal Family Systems.
I left chair-side dentistry in 2019 and moved into working full-time on Zoom online with clients from all over the world helping them release their fear.

In my career I have routinely helped dental patients:
Overcome their fears and phobias related to dentistry.
Develop a personalized strategy and plan to implement the 4 Pillars of the Fear No More Method to help them calmly walk through the door to the dental surgery.
Significantly reduce their anxiety and fear that comes from past overwhelming dental experiences.
Discover their inner calm and feeling of empowerment that comes from facing their fear in this safe way.
My approach is for you if:
You are ready to empower yourself in dealing with you fear of the dentist by trying a different approach.
You want a beautiful smile and the confidence that comes with that.
You no longer want to put off taking action.
You recognize that forcing yourself through the door to the dentist gets you there, but it leaves you feeling totally depleted and exhausted afterwards.
You have tried some recommendations you’ve found online - like breathing exercises or relaxation, but you freaked out and couldn’t understand what happened.
You realize that a simple, but effective system that covers the 4 main Pillars of calmly facing your fear can prevent the freak outs and induce the feeling of control.
You want to feel calm, happy and in charge when seeing your dentist.
You are willing to put in some time for putting the 4 Pillars into action at home before going to the dentist.
"Working with Helena has completely transformed my dental experience.
Through the process of acknowledging, being heard and having my feelings of fear and distress witnessed, I experienced an initial relief that developed into a deeper sense of trust as the process continued. This in itself was amazing given that I knew Helena to be a dentist, and I have a general mistrust of dentists!
I feel that being a skilled dentist, a trauma therapist and a professional coach is a powerful combination that allows Helena to offer specialist levels of support and healing to anyone suffering from dental trauma."
