Coming from the fitness and dance industry herself, Helen has a wealth of knowledge in how the human body functions and behaves physically. Helen has been working in this field for over 20 years and has also worked with the hearing and visually impaired.
As a trainer of fitness and dance instructors for over 15 years, as well as a course director, assessor and Internal Verifier for Sports and Recreation NVQ courses at level 2 and 3 (within several of the top London Adult Education colleges), she also continues to teach her own fitness classes within several leisure companies and larger conventions. Helen runs master classes on advanced dance and fitness teaching and choreography methods. Her specialist styles are American jazz tap, a blended programme of Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi and step aerobics.


A longstanding fascination with the human body ultimately led her to teach human anatomy and physiology for sports and complementary therapists alike. Helen has specialised in this for the past 15 years and delivers it with the same enthusiasm as day one. She is also an ITEC qualified massage therapist and tutor. Her passion for her subject is clearly visible in her teaching and her fascination is contagious.
Still in the Dance & Fitness industry today, she leads her own dance company ‘Pulse’ and is a director, choreographer, producer and performer.

Helen has also produced and directed 8 shows in the U.K. and abroad, including many charity performances comprising several different dance styles including American jazz tap, modern dance, street jazz, locking, salsa, Irish tap and Latin American dance.

What our students have said about Helen Cameron-Lee

"‘If you want to learn anatomy for bodyworks, look no further than SNT. Helen truly brings the subject matter to life and makes it relevant in a way that sticks: a hugely informative, fun and rewarding course"
Submitted by Rebecca (Aug 1st 2017)

"Having recently completed the ITEC Level 3 Massage with SNT, I highly recommend this course and the school. This was an intensive course, but was made thoroughly enjoyable thanks to tutors, Helen and Suz. Their enthusiastic and fun approach to teaching made all the information easier to understand and digest. The classes are taught in a relaxed environment where all students are free to ask any questions they may have. I definitely plan on returning to the school in the future to study. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience."

"f you are thinking of applying for ITEC Level 3 in Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology, at this school, have no hesitation whatsoever. Helen, the tutor for this subject, is talented and inspiring. Her passion, enthusiasm, and approachable manner made the subject come alive and her visual aid maquettes and interactive classes made a complex subject easy to absorb and left us wanting to learn more. Yes, it is an intensive course, but with Helen’s teaching, guidance on handing in assignments at the right times, and the support she gave us, this course is achievable at a high standard."

"“This course is a brilliant way to learn Anatomy & Physiology as Helen is a gifted teacher who understands how to best convey often complex information in an absorbing, simple way. Some of us, as students, are blessed with wonderful auditory skills; whilst others (like myself) only seem to learn in a visual way. Helen’s teaching caters to all students, but what particularly impressed me was her deep understanding of and her own evident enjoyment of the material which ensures that all student queries are answered in an engaging and easy to comprehend way. I would say that with her teaching it’s almost impossible to fail. For this reason alone i would sign up!” All the best"

"I have recently completed the ITEC Diploma in Massage - QCF Level 3 course at the School of Natural Therapies and I couldn’t recommend the school highly enough. Despite the course being intensive, the clear guidance given by Helen and Suz enabled me to manage my time across the three and half months of study without any undue stress, and all whilst working a full time job. Both Helen and Suz are clearly passionate about their teaching and offer styles of teaching that make what appear to be indigestible reams of information into easier, simpler, more manageable learnings. From the first lesson when I was mildly overwhelmed by the course content, both tutors guided us as a class through often dense studies to make those studies feel applicable and understandable. The classes are taught with good humour and sharp tutorial thought which can make everything accessible for even the most novice learner. I’ve come away with a renewed sense of what is achievable in only a few months and with further ambitions to return to the school to study other courses on offer. Thanks to all at the School of Natural Therapies for making what could be a daunting task into something joyful, stimulating and always engaging. James 20 July 217"

"The Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology course with London School of Natural Therapies was a healthy and fun challenge. I looked at so many online DIY courses and couldn't imagine facing the journey alone. Helen, my tutor, was dynamic, entertaining, fun and made the whole process a fascinating and enjoyable process. I can't imagine doing it any other way. This kind of learning can only be done in a class environment and only with a teacher who loves her job. LSNT has perfected how they teach AP&P and this reflects in our classes 100% pass rate all at a high mark. Loved it!"

"I can't recommend this course highly enough. The teaching methods are enjoyable and interactive with plenty of hands on practice. The teachers Helen and Suz are enthusiastic and lively in their teaching and very approachable for help at any stage of the process. The A & P was very intensive and Helen made this easier with lots of excellent ways to get information to stick. The practical massage was challenging at the beginning, with so many things to remember about technique and posture but Suz was there reminding us all over and over and over again, to make sure that we learned the right way and didn't allow any bad postural habits to take hold. Both teachers gave us confidence that we could not just succeed but excel. I'm looking foward to more courses with SNT, beginning with the chair massage course later this year!

"I would recommend the ITEC Level 3 Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology course at SNT to anyone looking for a well thought-out, well supported and very well taught course. Helen made studying the complexities of the human body both very clear and enjoyable. I look forward to doing other courses at SNT. All best wishes, Robin x"

" There are many e-learning courses for L3 Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology available, but in my experience nothing can compare to being taught face-to-face as part of a small group. This is why I chose SNT originally and I definitely made the right choice. Helen is an amazingly enthusiastic, knowledgeable teacher who brought even the hardest elements to life for our close knit group. APP is an intense course that requires hard work but with Helen's teaching and supportive classmates I achieved a Distinction at 96%. I'm now looking forward to starting the Reflexology course with SNT in the Autumn. "

"  want to thank you once again for the outstanding level of help and support throughout another fantastic course, having now achieved not just one, but two Distinctions with your school.   Having not studied in years, I was daunted by the aspect of going through this again in 2012/2013 .  However, I cannot praise Helen enough for her amazing teaching skills, somehow making learning the Anatomy & Physiology seem easy!   Suz was an amazing teacher for the practical Massage sessions too.  So keen to pass on all she knows, and her feedback and help with the coursework was second to none.   So after passing the Massage course, it didn't surprise me to be back again this year to train as a Reflexologist.  Julie is so knowledgeable in the subject.  With years of experience, you will learn so much with her.   I highly recommend SNT to everyone.   Alison "

" "I had interest in learning reflexology and I realised that I needed to take AP&P first. I did a search online and found The School of natural Therapies, which was not too far from me and it seemed a safe choice as they are accredited and/or recognised by several associations in the industry and have many years of experience. However, I was not expecting to enjoy the course as much as I did. I have a full time job and was concerned about not being able to spend enough time revising. But Helen proved to be not only knowledgeable in the subject, but very dynamic and animated, which helped me to learn and retain the information before having to get home and study as well as waking our curiosity and further interest in the subject.   As the groups are small I had the chance to benefit from very close attention. It almost felt like if I had the teacher for myself and that my needs as a foreign student were always met. So all in all, I strongly recommend this school and this course. I am now studying reflexology and again, loving it!!” "

" For anyone wondering whether to join or are yet to start a course with the School of Natural Therapies, I highly recommend it. During my experience I was guided in the right direction to succeed throughout (by all my tutors) and it certainly works because I am delighted with my grade! My tutors Helen, Suz, Joseph, Iris and Trevor all went above and beyond to answer my many questions and provide me with really thorough, encouraging and useful feedback. The amount I learnt in such a short time is unbelievable. All the staff at SNT are so friendly and I will definitely be returning for further courses and now I've been, couldn't imagine choosing any other school. Thank you to everyone who helped me reach my goal! (Marc, Duncan, Helen, Joseph, Suz, Trevor and Iris and everyone else involved) Alison Fay Clarke "

" Hi Duncan, How are things with you? Thank you very much for the care you took in sending my ITEC diploma,it arrived in Japan safely and it is beautifull, I can't thank you enough! Since qualifying with you, I've got a holistic therapist job at a hotel and spa here in Japan and am startingwork there from 1st March. I'm so very proud of myself that I've learnt a great deal at your school and I'm sure that experience will only make me a better therapist in the future. I really like the way your tutors taught us in the lessons. I won't be able to find another Holistic Therapy School in London as professional and helpfull as yours and so when I come and study again in London I'll definitely get in touch with you! Please can you thank from the bottom of my heart, Marc, Suz, Helen as well as you xxxx Warm regards, Ayumi Uchiyama "
