Helen Cameron-Lee

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 25 years and has also worked with the hearing and visually impaired.

As a trainer of fitness and dance instructors for over 20 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 25 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.

I just want to say thanks to our amazing teachers. Helen and Suzannah made the difference in this course. Well informed on everything concerning their subject and more, Helen with her funny and very interesting lessons making easy difficult and tricky anatomy concepts and terminology and Suz with all her useful advices on how perform massages being always careful about our own body in the long time practice. Moreover, I want to highlight that English is not my first language and, even though I do not feel still completely confident with it, I had no problem at all understanding and making mine all information given.

I recently studied on the ITEC Level 3 Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology course with Helen and she made it an enjoyable experience through her interactive and learner friendly teaching style. Having someone who is so engaging makes for an effective learning environment and she is an outstanding teacher that made it a pleasure to study. Her communication via email between sessions helped me as she marked work, giving feedback and allowing the flexibility needed to guide me through the course. Learning in a practical and kinesthetic way helped me greatly, and I’m thankful for the dedication and expertise of such a great teacher.

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

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.

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!

I 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.
