Self development and self discovery is my life journey.
After my first university degree, I worked in the corporate world for 16 years. Yet it didn’t take me long to know it wasn’t a great fit! Although I thrived on the stress and pressure, it was at times overwhelming. But the niggling feeling that I was doing something I didn’t love found me searching for what I wanted to be ‘when I grew up’ for the best part of a decade.
But what was very clear to me was that I was different. I felt emotions more than most, I expressed emotions more than most and I could see a fresh perspective for the many dear friends who would trust me for an ear and a shoulder to cry on.
For my entire adult life, I’ve had a therapist in one shape or another to guide me through my challenges and obstacles. So once I began studying kinesiology, it came to no surprise to me, but great surprise to my teachers, that I would spend far too much time counselling my clients rather than doing the traditional kinesiology work!
After I graduated, I began experimenting with my own style of therapy – using kinesiology to quickly pinpoint the deeper issues or emotions that needed addressing and drawing on various kinesiology and other tools I’ve learnt along the way, including from my Graduate Diploma in Psychology.
My own self-development has always had a very strong theme: defining my own identity (read: not that of which others would define me/how I think others define me). Over time, I am learning to unmask myself and become more and more authentic and accepting of who I am – warts and all! (And the battle to conquer perfectionism is real!) I have no doubt that the losses I have endured: my mother to cancer (as a young mother myself), two very close uncles, dear friends, three miscarriages and my best friend/fur baby; have all contributed to my ability to empathise with all kinds of grief. So don’t be surprised if I share a tear or two in clinic! I’ve also struggled with eczema and asthma for over 40 years and coming to terms with how I look on the outside (especially as a recovering perfectionist) has been a particularly big challenge for me. In a nutshell, I’ve tread some difficult roads. I now draw upon those experiences and, more importantly, the learnings from those experiences to help you in your own self discovery.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
It was so amazing to meet you today and completely pour my heart out to you. It felt good to get some of it out… I struggle every day trying to control my anxiety that trying to suppress the feelings that go with it is just making it harder for myself… Thank you so much again, you have no idea how much I appreciate it. Today has been one of the best days I have had so far in the past 9 months or so… Look forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you so much Phillipa, it was so great meeting you and I can’t thank you enough for what I took away from the session. I resonated strongly with everything you said and left feeling light – a feeling I haven’t felt in a long time. I’m blown away how incredibly insightful and accurate you were. Really looking forward to our next session, thanks again.
I feel so grateful to be able to work with you and the guidance you gave me the other night. I’m so fascinated about kinesiology and the session exceeded all my expectations. What a gift you have! I will implement my homework and continue to work with grounding energy. I can’t wait for the new experiences that may manifest from this and visit you again in the future for continual growth.
What an amazing 2 hours of my life. Thanks Phillipa for an amazing experience. You are an angel on earth.
I have been seeing Phillipa for almost a year and the difference she has made to my life is just amazing. I always walk away from our sessions feeling a renewed sense of who i am and what i need to do to achieve what I want. Phillipa is such a wonderful, caring and thoughtful person and I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to find peace and harmony in their lives.
I had great experience doing the ‘Revitalise your gut’ program (with Naturopath, Erika Wiseman). Phillipa and Erika were fabulous. They are both attentive, caring and intuitive. I’d been to specialists and numerous other health experts but wasn’t given any advice on how to improve my symptoms. It felt like I (and my body) were being listened to properly for the first time and as a result realistic suggestions/changes were suggested. I feel significantly better since doing the programme and have a better sense of what my body needs and doesn’t want.
Thank you for your work with me, I feel the cocoons opening and releasing butterflies into the universe!!! Look forward to seeing you upon our return.
Phillipa is an empath and used her intuition to accurately guide me to the emotions I needed to clear. The take home essence she additionally provided worked amazingly well. She creates a very calming and loving energy.
I would really recommend Phillipa, she is relaxed and very easy to talk to. I was suffering from acute insomnia and we managed to work though a lot of things I didn’t even realise were causing me to not sleep. She gave me skills which not only helped me sleep again but which I can also use throughout my lifetime. Thanks again, Phillipa!
There’s been some shifts in quite a few things for me over the last couple of weeks since our session. Namely because the session brought to light how much I’m standing in my own way! … I have felt different, sort of ‘lighter’ since and am making small changes to take care of myself, as per your suggestions.
Phillipa is inspirational, authentic and keeps it real. A beautiful soul and wonderful kinesiologist who has helped me to shift my perceptions and make positive changes on many different levels. Highly recommend A+++
I would like to thank your your time last week. I’ve never had an experience quite like it, but you made sure I felt supported and I can’t describe how much an hour with you helped me… Thanks again Phillipa, so grateful to have met you.
I don’t go a month without getting a balance from Phillipa. She helps me make my goals clearer and I learn something new about myself every time. I’ve come a long way since I first started sessions! I would highly recommend Phillipa to others.
I highly recommend both Erika & Phillipa after completing their ‘Revitalise your gut’ program. I enjoyed the holistic approach of 2 specialists working together to produce the best treatment for me. I visited Phillipa & Erika separately over a course of 4 weeks. In between sessions they collaborated to develop a thorough & personalised plan which allowed me to gently make realistic changes to my diet & lifestyle. Thank you both.
