Philippa

Born in Africa and educated in England, I went from school to train in dance (Royal Ballet School and Arts Educational Trust) and then to the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I spent about ten years working in the theatre before giving it up to raise a family on a farm. Finding myself in crisis and a single parent, I went into my own personal analysis. As a result of that I trained as a Yoga Teacher and a Counsellor. Then, through joining a dream group I found I could pull these two threads, East and West, together in Transpersonal Psychology. Further in depth psychotherapy and training followed to qualify as a Psychotherapist (Centre for Transpersonal Psychology, London).
