In 2003 she won a British Composer Award for her Oboe Concerto, and was awarded all the major composition prizes in the RCM. In 2008 she was awarded a Leonard Bernstein Fellowship to study at the Tanglewood Music Center. She became a lecturer in composition at the Department of Music at Royal Holloway, University of London, in January 2010. She was appointed Associate Composer to the Hallé in 2011.

Helen has had works commissioned by some of the most established performers, including London Symphony Orchestra, BCMG, Britten Sinfonia, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Tanglewood Music Center.
