Philippa believes that our pasts influence how we are today including relationship patterns, style of communication, and how we view ourselves and the world around us. For this reason, she takes an interest in your story and understanding the origin of the issue(s) that bring you into counselling.

Philippa’s approach is in line with cognitive behaviour therapy wherein she believes that the messages we send ourselves have a significant influence on how we feel and behave and that a shift in how we feel can occur through examining and learning how to challenge our thought and behavioural patterns. Philippa respects that one size does not fit all and will draw upon different therapeutic modalities in order to best meet the needs of each unique client. Most importantly, she works with you to ensure that your experience in counselling is meaningful and results in lasting change.

“Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you want. To talk about how you are feeling. To have the hard conversations”  -Brené Brown
