Psychotherapy &

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a psychotherapeutic counsellor.  

I provide short and long term counselling & psychotherapy to clients who self refer or qualify for therapy through their insurance company. 


I am a UKCP registered supervisor and qualified in Transactional Analysis as a Provisional Training and Supervising Transactional Analyst.  

I work with supervisees 1:1 and in groups with clinical work, education, & preparation for exams.

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 in Transactional Analysis which informs how I work and think but I also use other techniques such as dream analysis to support my work with clients.

"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."
