About me

Thank you for visiting my page.

Hi. I am Philippa  and I am a certified life coach based in Sherborne Dorset, offering both face to face coaching and on line sessions

I provide a kind, non judgemental, friendly and safe space for you to talk through whatever is challenging you right now, and to help you work out what is going to make your life feel a whole lot better and how to get there. This could range from struggling with anxiety and low self confidence through to general uncertainty about how to create a fulfilled and happy life. Whatever you are facing I can help you take control of moving forward in a way that is right for you.

Recent clients have come to me because:

'At work I look as though I am on top of everything but inside I am such a mess'

'I get overwhelmed with anxious thoughts and can't sleep'

'I'm 50 next year and feel as though I have wasted my life'

If you are stuck on similar challenges, or simply unhappy and don't know how to move forward in life, please do have a chat with me . I won't judge, fix or tell you what to do. I will create a  safe space to help you step back and think about your life, to work out what really matters to you and how to use that insight to move forward.

You will find it enjoyable, interesting and empowering and always forward looking.The pace and tone will always be led by you-you can trust me to be friendly and kind.

I love coaching and the change it can bring about for people - helping someone to find the best way to live the life they want is completely inspiring and so rewarding. I really hope you will get in touch to see if I can help you too.

'Philippa has helped me make sense of a mass of thoughts and feelings that I hadn't previously been able to act on. Her supportive, caring, positive attitude allowed me to take control and make a huge step towards my goal. I'm extremely grateful!" Freya London

'Philippa helped me to understand the fundamentals of who I am, what I need in my life to feel fulfilled and has enabled me to find ways to focus on the positives. I would never have got there on my own and for that I am truly grateful After my sessions with Philippa I feel more able to be kinder and proud of myself, which is pretty amazing...' Emily Dorset

'I feel like a completely different person. I feel nurtured. I have clarity. I have a direction. I feel stronger' Vikki Dorset

Additional information

Like to find out more?

My first session is always free, to help you work out whether you think life coaching will help, and if it is, to make sure I'm the right life coach for you.

After that I charge £60 for each session. These usually last around 90 minutes.

You can book 3 sessions for a reduced rate of £150.

And if you like, we can hold a whole day session. One day, you and me, refreshments, biscuits and some personal breakthroughs for you.

Most people I work with decide to book 3 sessions with me, and many extend beyond that when they feel like they need some further support.

Sessions are held on line (via zoom) or face to face in Sherborne Dorset - whatever works best for you.

When I work

Monday to Thursday 8am to 7pm.

Early mornings and evenings by arrangement
