Life Coach

About me

I work with women who have worked hard to get the things they want in their life but find themselves unfulfilled. The line in my head was "There must be more to life than this" and you might have something similar running through yours.  

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.

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

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.

I cannot do the work for you but I will be by your side all the way. I don't offer a quick fix but I will ensure that your sessions are tailored to you and your individual needs. I know from personal experience that change is possible if you have the time, the energy and the determination to do the deep work that is needed. You have all the answers inside you and, if you want to find them, I will help you.

I offer a free, no obligation telephone or zoom call to discuss your situation, after which you can decide if coaching with me is right for you. Use the link below (you will need to copy and paste it into your browser) to book a call with me:

Recent feedback:

"Philippa's strengths are too many to type but I will list a few: the ability to put you at ease as soon as her face appeared on the Zoom link; her honesty; her smile; the openness of her body language. From the moment I read her first email I felt drawn to Philippa. I was put at ease as soon as I saw her face on the Zoom link. She has this ability to make you feel that you've known her forever. So this makes it easier to be open and honest with her. She listens and using her own life experiences, helps you realise that everyone experiences similar things. Her insights/observations on what you are telling her gives you a more realistic perspective and understanding of you and the journey towards your goals." P.K.

If you want to work with me, we can talk about what you want or need and I can put together a proposal for a package especially for you. To facilitate lasting change usually 4-6 sessions are required. Potential clients often ask for a bespoke package and one-off sessions so please don’t hold back if you want to discuss this. 

If you really want me to help you, don’t let the cost stop you from contacting me. I discount prices for those who really need it.
