Who we are

Hello I’m Helena, the founder of happily.

happily is a family run friendship and dating project which I started with my mother, Corriene. The idea of happily was born from my first-hand experience of helping my younger sister who has learning disabilities to find love and friendship. I felt there was a real need for a secure place where she could meet genuine people, so I launched happily.

Having previously worked with adults with learning disabilities and autism, I am passionate about supporting individuals both personally and professionally.

My mother, Corriene, is a developmental psychologist with a doctorate in Psychology.

Most importantly we want to help you live life happily!
