Helen Cousin

My name is Helen cousin, I am a mum of 4 and have 3 beautiful grandchildren. For most of my adult life I have lived in Misterton, Nottinghamshire where I work as a teaching assistant at the local primary school, a job i love.

In June 2017 my life changed forever when I lost my 16 year old daughter Maisie to suicide. Since then I have dedicated my spare time into highlighting the importance of early intervention in mental health.

The idea of Trevor in The Knot came to me during the early hours one morning. I've always loved rhyme so this seemed the natural route to take with my book.
I am proud to say that all money raised from the knot is donated to 'Help Me, I'm Fine'
