Anyone can come for talking therapy - people from all different walks of life.

The most important thing is that you find the right therapist for you and that a talking therapy is what you are looking for.

Working Online

I have been working online for some years and have undertaken training to enable me to work as safely and effectively as  working face to face.


I am qualified supervisor with a diploma in supervision and work with supervisees from the same or different modalities. 

I am currently working with training and qualified counsellors as a supervisor 1:1 and in groups

About Me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist, supervisor & psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Brighton and Hove.  

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, a BACP accredited psychotherapist and working as a supervisor with diploma in supervision. 

My Approach

 My approach is relational, which means that what emerges in the relationship between client and therapist is important to the therapeutic process and outcome.

I have specialised as a psychotherapist inTransactional Analysis which informs how I work and think but I also use other techniques such as dream analysis to support my work with clients. 

Issues I work with:
  • Depression

  • Anxiety & generalised anxiety disorder incl. anxiety around health

  • Phobias

  • Relationship issues including sexuality, trust, communication

  • Life transitions

  • Trauma or difficulties in childhood

  • Difficulties with self-esteem

  • Eating issues

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Professional/career issues

  • College/university issues

  • Feeling sad, low or dissatisfied

  • Issues with drugs and alcohol

  • Medical & health concerns

  • Long term health conditions

  • Emotional regulation

  • Stress management

  • Neglect & abuse - physical, mental, emotional & sexual

  • Spirituality & faith related issues

  • Identity


  • Grief, loss, or bereavement

  • Family issues incl. difficult relationships, & adoption

  • Insomnia 

  • Education

This list is not exhaustive - I have been trained to work with and relate to clients with a very wide range of issues.  I also undertake indepth supervision and CPD to support my learning and development as a practitioner.

"Working with Pippa has activated something in me which has fundamentally shifted the way I understand myself, my relationships and my potential.
She has received me, and the issues I have brought to therapy, with compassion and kindness at all times. Pippa has challenged me helpfully when appropriate and quickly identified and utilised ways to easily engage me; humour, visual descriptions and obscure film references.
It's clear that the client / therapist relationship is at the heart of Pippa's practice, and I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone considering counselling."
