About me


We all want to feel seen, heard and understood and I try my very best to ensure that every client walks away from a session with me feeling like that. Especially HSPs, empaths and COAs/ACOAs (Adult/Child of an Alcoholic) as we often find it hard to find people who understand us.

You have all the answers inside you and, if you want to find them, I will help you.

You might know that something is missing in your life but you're not sure what it is or where to start looking. You might want to make a big change in your life, start something new or just be having a really tough time. You might want someone by your side, just for you, to help you through whatever is going on for you right now.

My part in your personal development process is to facilitate your healing and progress and support you along the way. I cannot do the work for you so you will need to be committed to make real change if our time together is going to bring the results you desire. I don’t offer a quick fix but 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. We will have some fun along the way too.

Recent feedback:

“I was looking for a Life Coach to help me out with making some pretty big life decisions and I couldn't have come across a better person for the job! Philippa is such a kind lady and really does listen to every word that you say, she picks up a sense of who you are very quickly and advises you based on this. She really helped me see my situation from a completely different angle and gave some really great advice. 100% would recommend!”

“Philippa is honest and open and this put me at ease hugely and enabled me to be honest and open back. She is very good at using examples from her own life to illustrate a hurdle or an issue that she has overcome therefore inspiring me to do the same. She takes me and my ideas seriously and helps me to feel like anything is possible; at the same time she is realistic and happy to challenge me and make suggestions that will take me out of my comfort zone. She follows up and checks on progress which helps me feel accountable and reduces the risk of procrastination.”
