Helen Dicks (Owner and Class Leader)
Helen trained as a complementary therapist in 1994 specialising in maternity care and infant massage. She worked with midwives in a private birthing centre using her skills as a therapist to help women through their pregnancies, post-natally and during some very memorable births. She also taught infant massage and baby reflex classes before becoming one of the first Baby Sensory franchisees in 2007. She had the privilege of training under the Baby Sensory founder Dr Lin Day.
She feels being able to share with parents the developmental milestones their babies reach is fantastic and says 'It's very sad when babies reach the end of their time with us, but I have had such fun watching their personalities grow and knowing I have had a part in developing their skills and learning is very satisfying. It's definitely the best job in the world.'
Helen is married and has two adult children. Her hobbies are reading, walking, dog training and her two crazy cocker spaniels.
