Helena is a neurodivergent graphic designer and Founder and Creative Director of nooh Studio, a central London design-led storytelling agency.

Helena has ADHD and a brain that is full of new ideas. She speaks about how this both helps and hinders her creative process and discusses the tools and processes she has in place to help her, as a creative founder, execute the many ideas that wiz through her brain in any one day.


Helena has hosted talks at Imperial College, Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London and has run multiple campaigns for London NHS Trusts. In 2019, she published a book, 100 Stories of Cancer, running a story-led campaign to support those affected by cancer with the aim of promoting open discussion and normalising the cancer conversation by documenting other people’s stories and representing them through design. 100 Stories is the blueprint for Helena’s approach to design.

Monika is a qualified therapist, with a humanistic approach, and hasover ten years of experience working in the private sector and within the NHS, supporting people with:

  • Relationship problems, including abuse
  • Work related support issues
  • Low self-esteem and low confidence
  • Complex trauma
  • Drug and alcohol dependency
  • Coercive control   

Monika views therapy as a journey of exploration and discovery, but also a time when you can share your worries and doubts in a safe and confidential space. 


"I strongly recommend Monika as a therapist.  Finding the right fit is critical and she is just that for me; her ability to process information quickly, provide tangible solutions and mix this with empathy and even humour was a winning combination for me"

"Alcohol addiction has always been a very big problem of mine. I have struggled to control the addiction, having seen many therapists for help. Personally, I did not want to give up alcohol and feared that may be the case. I was then recommended Monika, and I could not be more grateful that I was. With her help not only have I been able to control my alcohol consumption, but I have also been able to reduce it, to a much healthier level. I now continue to see Monika for further therapy, to do with reasons for my addiction, and possible solutions to deep rooted issues. I have to admit that Monika is better than I expected, and I can not thank her enough"
