In today’s highly competitive market, a good first impression is vitally important. There’s nothing more off-putting than literature or a website littered with grammatical errors and typos. Tough as it may seem, it only takes one tiny mistake for your professional credibility to be harshly judged. Having your literature professionally proofread gives you peace of mind that you are presenting a flawless image to make you stand out from the crowd. I offer a bespoke proofreading and proof-editing service to provide you with a polished and professional end product.
I trained with the Publishing Training Centre (PTC) and am an Intermediate Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) – the ‘gold standard’ in proofreading and editing excellence. I am experienced in proofreading and proof-editing all kinds of material including web copy, company magazines, annual reports, strategy documents, press releases, PowerPoint presentations, white papers, full length books and student theses. I have proof-edited a great deal of literature prepared by non-native English speakers to improve grammar and clarity.

I have an honours degree in Biology and have had an extensive career in the clinical healthcare sector. I am therefore confident in proofreading technical text, scientific literature and references, as well as being skilled at working to urgent deadlines.

All of my work is done electronically, meaning I can work efficiently regardless of your location in the world. I invite you to take a look at my website for more information and to read what others have said about my work. Thank you for reading my profile. I look forward to working with you.


I have worked with Helen for the past 6 months, where she has always been so enthusiastic and has a great eye for detail. Helen wants to ensure that every job is of the highest standard and will ask questions rather than assume. My only regret is that we didn’t connect sooner!


I am a pharmacist doing my PhD in the UK. I have been working with Helen for about one year. She has proofread many documents for me. She has impressed me in her ability to review many different document formats: Word, PowerPoint and also different writing styles, both formal and informal.

Helen has saved me a lot of time and has taken away the need to keep looking for different proofreaders from various websites. I just send her an email with my work attached and plan the time. Sometimes I put Helen under pressure with respect to time, but I can say with confidence that she delivers 99% to deadline.

I have now worked intensively with Helen during the past year. Her email replies and her efforts are outstanding.

I would strongly recommend Helen to anyone looking for a smooth process with a person that you can trust in terms of both time and quality.
