I help childless women, embrace their journey and release what’s holding them back by connecting them to their inner creativity

If you are ready to get back to living an empowered life of joy, vitality and freedom, you are in the right place.

Hi, I’m Helen Segal

Art Counsellor, Teacher & Cosmic Smashbook Certified Guide

WHY I DO WHAT I DO!

I suffered the loss of two IVF treatments in my 40’s and as a result, the loss of my number one dream.  I found myself in, a form of a mid-life crisis. I felt disempowered, lonely and lost.

A big part of my healing journey has been to connect to my creativity.

I quietly and safely expressed my emotions again and again and again. I relearned how to own my truth, how I felt, what self-care meant to me at this time in my life and I found a path out of hell.

This changed my life. Things are not 100% perfect, life never is, but I know that my life is not over.

With Empowered Childlessness I am on a mission to support others to embrace their own journey’s by using the power of the healing arts and creativity, to release what is holding them back and reopen to their joy, freedom and vitality in their lives after loss and grief.

.

I can help you reconnect to your truth, joy, vitality and freedom.

 

You have found yourself Childless.

Your dreams and desires have not come true.

Time has run out

Life is slipping away

You feel lost, overwhelmed and angry at yourself and others

You’ve worked hard, but life just has not worked out the way you planned.

And now you feel stuck and find yourself at a place you never thought you would beHERE!

You’ve tried to get out of this funk yourself, but it’s not worked.

You’ve worked hard – but now you are completely exhausted.

Do you continue down this road?

Or

Do you decide to try something new?

This is where I come in and introduce you to the Healing Arts and Cosmic Smash Booking.

I believe that when we connect to the Healing Arts, our true selves come out to play.  When we are in a safe space we get to be honest and when we get to be honest we get to feel seen and heard.  And when we feel seen and heard we get to feel open, joyful and free.

The Healing Arts is a way to connect to our unconscious wisdom, so we really don’t have to work so hard in our lives.  All we need to do is turn up for ourselves without needing to always know what’s next.  This truly is a place of aliveness and possibility.

I believe our creativity is like everything else in our universe; energy.  it’s, therefore, more important to connect and raise our vibration than our need to do things perfectly.

I also believe it’s a hell of a lot harder to do this alone.

But, Our journey is ours to walk through.

This is why I created Empowered Childlessness,

I teach women the power of the healing arts.

And Here we start again.

We stop pushing.

I support you to create a safe space to be, to feel, to release, to listen and then recreate what is waiting to be created in your life.

I teach you to put pen, brush, pencil to paper to trust yourself and surrender with loving tender action.

Here you start to listen to yourself again.  You get to play with paint, colour, marks and collage.  You search images and you start to trust your intuition again. 

You ask the universe for answers, you start to trust the answers that come and you continue to take loving action.

You may have fallen, You may feel broken, but life has not ended! 

I am here and together you can start again, this time with more compassion for yourself and the world.

I joined  Helen on the Lets Begin course – I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect and how it would work using the Zoom platform.

My worries disappeared as soon as the course began. Helen is an excellent guide mentor, really passionate and caring.  I thought I wasn’t arty that soon evaporated and I was creating, exploring and connecting to all the other wonderful women on the course.

We were all so supportive of each other, holding space and compassion for each other, loving the fact that each of us was growing and getting so much out of the course.

The 40 days went by so quickly, I learnt so much and got so much out of the course, it was a real gift to myself and I am so glad I took the leap and started. I would recommend it, a great way to create, explore and have fun!!

The Let’s Begin Weekend Workshop was eye-opening, fun, creative and brilliant. What a calming and beautiful way to process your emotions and document your journey of healing. I have learnt so much about myself in just 8hrs. The time went too quickly! Highly highly recommend!

 It was an impulsive decision to sign up, I had asked the universe to help me find peace with my childlessness and to stop beating…

myself up because we stopped trying. I opened Facebook and there she was, this beautiful soul, Helen. 

This weekend started off skeptically for me! But after the first hour I started to really open myself to the process and by the end of the course I feel like a changed woman. So much calmer and I’ve unlocked so much potential within myself that I never knew was there! The world looks a little softer and my heart feels a little lighter and I have tools to help me continue my personal growth. 

I could not recommend this lady and her course enough. There is no judgement, you can work to your own speed and she is a wonderful teacher. I’m not sure when the next one is but I’m sure if you reached out to Helen she would be able to help 😊. Much love to you all ♥️  Leanne 

40 Day Program

Really cannot express how much I encourage everyone wanting something to change in their life to take up this course!  I have thoroughly enjoyed and grown from this course so so much that I want everyone else who is struggling to feel like I do, full of energy and light and excitement.  

If even a small part of you has read Helen’s email and thinks ‘oh, that sounds interesting’ or ‘I agree with everything she has said but is it for me?’ (which was what I thought before I went for it haha!) absolutely go for it…

Thank you, Helen, so much for providing this safe space. When I started I had been feeling stuck for months, with no clue what to do about it!

All the women in the group were warm, friendly and vulnerable. Their openness allowed me to be just as vulnerable and truly feel safe to express myself in this process and feel like part of a community.

Thank you for knowing when to push and when to gently allow …

… us the space we needed to find ourselves in our own time.

Your guidance and your program has been the biggest blessing I could have asked for during such an uncertain time in my life to express, explore, and ultimately to rediscover myself. A million thank you’s are not enough to express my gratitude. I’m so grateful for you!’

I took up the 3 days Let’s Begin Weekend Workshop to overcome any creative blocks, fears & self-sabotaging behaviour with regards too shifting forward into a new chapter of my life.

 I want to produce some abstract fluid art work. This is a dream that has been suppressed since I was young as I was discouraged from taking A level. 

So I’m reconnecting to my truth and authenticity @ 51!   I am admittedly & gratefully coming out the other side of my childless grief and seeing light on other side.  

The weekend helped propel me forward further and has given me that final push & support necessary to realise ‘My true potential’ as there’s so much life can offer.

I am admittedly & gratefully coming out the other side of my childless grief and seeing light on other side so the weekend helped propel me forward even further and has given me that final push & support necessary to realise ‘My true potential’ as there’s so much life can offer.

The pause and space that covid period has gifted me allowed me to rethink my life plan and ask Q what do I really want to do next?
I feel ready spring into action now and have set up my garage as a makeshift studio.

I feel Reenergised and the Let’s Begin Workshop allowed me process emotions through journaling and healing nature of intuitive art.

Thanks Helen you are a great facilitator x generous and talented x

I received an email from Empowered Childlessness in 2019.  after seeing Helen being interviewed.  I felt a connection to who she was being, and really resonated with her art therapy as well.  My son had passed in 2018 and I was feeling caught up in the sadness and feeling lifeless inside. My thoughts of never being with him again….all the stories of “I should have’s “why didn’t I … ” were consuming me.

I joined Helen’s Create JoY Program  was a wonderful, deep, and transformative 6-week journey.

Helen, you are a gift…I felt heard,  accepted and supported by you.  The meditations and art therapy were so helpful in bringing up what needed to be seen and transformed.

I had the pleasure of taking Helen Segal’s 6-week “Create Joy” training. I loved it and feel it was a game-changer for me. I sporadically used to paint for fun, but now I have a broader, artistic “tool kit” of activities and prompts to draw from. I also have a deeper resource (my own body and emotions) to paint from.

Each week we met as an intimate group via Zoom where we got to see each other’s art (optional) and share how our week. I loved seeing other’s art and hearing similarities and inspiration from their shares.

Helen is an excellent leader with years of artistic training and experience. She also has personal experience with grieving and using creativity as a mode of healing so naturally “knows” how to coach and support students. She is…

Each week we met as an intimate group via Zoom where we got to see each other’s art (optional) and share how the week went. I loved seeing other’s art and hearing similarities and inspiration from their shares.

Helen is an excellent leader. She has years of artistic training and experience to lead from. She also has personal experience with grieving and using creativity as a mode of healing so naturally “knows” how to coach and support students. She is funny, and also very sincere. She leads lovely, body centred meditations to start off each practice. These helped me to become present and move out of my head and into my body.

Helen gracefully held space for us when emotions came up in the process. She also demo’d the art activities and moved through her own feelings (nothing crazy overwhelming) but it gave me a felt sense/example of how to paint (or create) from and with my emotions. I did not know how to do this before.  Learning this means that I can feel more OK when I am not feeling up or happy. I can go to my art journal and feel that stuck energy and let my paint brush move without thinking too much or needing anything to be different than what it is. This is a key for me; as someone who has experienced much grief in my life and who is also very creative I need to be able to use my creativity for healing. The lessons in this course were varied and engaging; and I could work on them in my own time. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone. 

I use my Create Joy Journal almost every day; either painting, colouring or collaging in it. Now when I create, (usually painting) my intention is to come from my body and emotions. I experience more feeling and connection to an inner resource of hope and strength. I’m so grateful!
