About me

I use my life experience, my counselling training and my coach training to help women (in particular HSP women) to find their path to be who they REALLY are and to live the life they want (instead of what they think they should want). I particularly love supporting HSP women to embrace their sensitive strengths. 

This is my big why because I found myself with all the boxes ticked off (the boxes that society tells me should make me happy - husband, kids, dog, house, career) and I was angry, miserable and confused. I want everyone to know that it doesn’t have to be that way. The path to get to a place where you can really be yourself, not the self everyone else expects of you, isn’t easy but it is possible, it is doable and it really is worth it. 

I'm Philippa, and I am a Certified Coach, Timeline and NLP Practitioner. I had a successful legal career but after 27 years and a breakdown from burnout I realised that I had achieved a lot in my life but I was angry and unfulfilled.  I had a big wake up call in 2017 and decided to take a long, hard look at how I had got to where I was, where I really wanted to be and sought help and support to get there. Now I use my experience to help other women achieve their own transformation.

As a child of an alcoholic, I grew up with a lot of chaos and trauma in my life that led to low self-esteem and a constant feeling of not being enough.  My healing from those experiences has led me to want to help others experience the transformation I have experienced. I am acutely aware of the effect trauma can have on us and I always take this into consideration when I work with clients.

It is often the case that it's a major life event that makes us assess our life. I often work with women at a transition point (such as divorce, children leaving home, career change, menopause) or women that have experienced something that causes a re-evaluation (an accident or injury, illness or perhaps a realisation that things need to change - for me it was losing a lot of sight in one of my eyes). When we look back we can see there were signs to do the healing work earlier but we didn't see them at the time.

My superpower is my particular high sensory ability which means I have a knack of knowing how to get to the root of an issue or problem (and heads up, it usually comes from childhood) and as a result you can make great progress. It takes work but I will be supporting you all the way.

If this is your time to make changes, get in touch and we can have a call to talk about what you need. If you're ready to make changes, I want to help you.

Imagine your future...

Picture yourself living a richer, more contented life. You feel free and liberated and your relationship with yourself, loved ones and colleagues are healthy and nurturing.

Could that be you? The good news is that I can help you. I have lived that change and now I help others do it. The even better news is that when you change, not only do you benefit but so does everyone around you - your family, your friends, your colleagues, and your community.
