Helen Mitrofanis

Helen has a comprehensive background of over 20 years of corporate experience. For most of the past 15 years she has worked at executive level with leading global investment banks and in executive recruitment.

Helen brings many years of financial experience and strategy as a CFO. She integrates her business acumen (honed in fast paced and competitive environments) with her wisdom and awareness of the human inner world. She inspires and enables others to realise their professional and personal potentials.

Helen has coached and mentored business leaders at senior executive and management levels. She has also managed many highly-successful teams.

Helen has an exceptional ability to draw out the best in those she works with. She helps to actualise the inherent potential of the organisations and systems those people influence, or are a part of.

She has a passion for human relational dynamics. She passionately believes they underpin every aspect of personal, professional and corporate success.

Helen’s intrinsic nature is to empower people in a connected, conscious and compassionate manner. She inspires others to leave limited, habitual, and unhelpful ways of thinking behind. She guides them towards more fulfilling, skilful, productive, and rewarding business outcomes. Helen’s aim is to lead others to more empowered ways of being.

Helen has worked with individuals and groups to develop their strategies for building deep self-awareness. She has raised and developed their EQ, SQ and interpersonal skill levels.

She is acutely aware of the many benefits of developing an intimate understanding of self and an awareness of the other in dyadic and team structures within corporate environments. These benefits include a highly positive impact on functionality, organisational performance, profitability, and the quality of engagement and culture within organisations.

Helen also possesses extensive experience in complex, high-level conflict resolution and mediation. She manages situations that appear non-negotiable with an honest, insightful, and empathetic approach. This allows her to secure satisfying outcomes for all stakeholders.

There’s more to Helen than her broad and extensive corporate experience. She invested much of the past 15 years in spiritual and psychological development. This included training and practising as a qualified psychotherapist. She also qualified as a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher in the USA under the guidance of Professor Emeritus Jon Kabat-Zinn.

She considers her own internal practice (having “walked the walk”) as the foundation of her personal integrity. That informs and supports her professional work and the unique skill set she holds.

Helen’s unique and eclectic educational background underpins her extensive experience, and includes:

  • Masters of Commerce majoring in Professional Accounting (UNSW)
  • Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Economics and Finance (UNSW)
  • Clinically Qualified Psychotherapist
  • Certified in the Leadership Circle Profile (360 Degree Leadership Development Framework)
  • Qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Practitioner (University of Massachusetts, Behavioural Medicine, USA)

She is:

  • a Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA)
  • a registered member of PACFA (Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia)
  • a registered member of IARPP (International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy)

Senior Executive Leader
People & Culture

Personally, I have been so fortunate to work with Helen on my own leadership development. Her perceptiveness, honesty, firm but kind encouragement and support has led to results I never expected – both professionally and personally. I continue to benefit from the skills and insights Helen helped me to realise and am so grateful for the self-awareness she has guided me to and the positive impact that has had on my life.

Senior Executive Leader

The idea of a coaching program with a 360-degree questionnaire was extremely daunting at first. However, I couldn’t have been happier for the coaching journey I had with Helen. Like many other females in the workforce, I suffer from imposter syndrome. Through Helen’s authentic coaching I’ve learned so much about effective management and most importantly, I am far kinder to myself and have gained a new level of self-confidence. Thank you for your insight, truthfulness and kindness, and for inspiring me to be the leader I always wanted to be.

Senior Leader

She has provided me with a safe space to reflect on my past and present, and has helped me to evaluate opportunities that align with my purpose and strengths, in a framework for long term prosperity. With her guidance, I have been able to develop a clear vision for my future and take steps towards achieving my goals. I am immensely grateful for her support and expertise in helping me navigate this challenging time.
