  • from Sheridan Maguire. Professional Training & Coaching Consultant and Contractor on 21 Aug 2015

    Philippa is an excellent coach with the rare capacity to develop the client's thinking and engagement to action by using acutely developed non-directive skills. She can be challenging when it's needed, has a warm sense of humour and I highly recommend her as a coach.


  • from Thomas Lawson, Chief Executive on 27 Apr 2015

    Philippa coached me in my first year in my first chief executive role at Leap Confronting Conflict. The organisation and the environment presented some very serious challenges.

    Philippa's help was profoundly important to me. Her support helped me to:
    - have faith in my abilities to navigate the challenges;
    - understand their dimensions;
    - build momentum in the team;
    - to build my powers of self-reflection.

    Philippa did all of this with modesty, confidence, an impressive depth of knowledge of models and human dynamics, all the while being excellent company and someone who I relished listening to.


  • from Alan Barge, Director of Research & development AstraZeneca and Chief medical officer at ASLAN Pharma on 21 Feb 2015

    Philippa is a superb coach, adviser and business consultant. I have worked with her closely in the past 3 years on a number of projects involving the re-design of a corporate strategy, and the engagement of a large number of staff in the design and implementation of a very complex new business strategy.

    Philippa is imaginative, creative, insightful, constructive, engaging, intelligent and a delight to work with. I would recommend her unconditionally.


  • from Sonja Nathe, Manager iTunes at Apple on 12 Jan 2015

    I have privately worked with Philippa for now almost 3 years and can only recommend her consistency, trustworthiness and reliability. She has not once let me down and has amazing integrity and common sense is a part of her nature and demeanor.

    Regarding yoga and yoga practice I actually followed Philippa's recommendation to try it out! I got Philippa after a coaching session to take me through a yoga class... I love to exercise and found out I can push my body and also have respect for it at the same time.

    Philippa integrates the art of mindfulness and meditation work in everything she does/ says making her an amazingly rewarding person to work with!

    I also experienced Philippa in one to one sessions which I found very rewarding. For being a shy, but also as an experienced student she was improving my posture and doubts with ease and thoroughly. The intensity of her work is subtle and life changing, I can only highly recommend Philippa.
