Cat cuddles, plant-loving, anywhere by the sea, fiddling with tech just "cos", coffee shops (my #1 work location) and everything my city of Bristol has to offer in the way of food, fun and green spaces.
I work a lot with my coaching clients on their personal and business values. Mine are: Audacity, Daring, Disobedience, Equality, Honesty, Integrity, Leadership, Trust and Wittiness.
All forms of bigotry, the BS "shoulds" in the business space, the world's seeming determination towards separateness, unfairness, people that lack integrity and reliability (bug bear) and raw tomatoes!
Honest conversation, standing up for what I believe in, keeping promises, being brave when scared, f*cking with the "rules", laughter as medicine and being 100% invested in the people I care about.
After the best part of two decades as a senior manager in both the corporate and public sector worlds, burning out at least twice (that I’m prepared to count), I qualified and became a certified life coach and started my business in 2016. Truthfully I’d been coaching all my corporate life, it just took me a long time to break out and use my wingwoman skills in my own business. I’d followed the "should" path for so long but one day the penny finally dropped (there’s a longer story but we’d need wine). It was time to do it my way!
I work with other coaches, designers, therapists, copywriters, yoga teachers, artists, retail business owners and many more. My goal as a business coach is to support you to grow your business into your version of successful - but it's so much more than that. It's about cultivating the courage to be exactly who your are and show up in and for your businesses, your way.
I'm also a bit of a systems nerd and have a geeky love of tech. During my career I’ve led a ton of system, process and tech projects and the concept of the customer journey experience is something that I love to work with business owners on. Yes I love the tech, but actually I really get off spending the time and care creating a strategy for systems that is focussed on the customer experience and puts the human at the centre.
Hit rock emotional bottom after 5 yrs of repressing a whole ton of shit. Got help.
Divorced terrible human that is ex-husband. It's fair to say it wasn't amicable. At all.
Relocated to Bristol from Bournemouth. Loved the city's culture, missed the sea.
Graduated as a life coach from BYCA, attended Inspo Day in San Francisco.
Started my coaching biz alongside my corporate gig. Originally called "Parfait not Perfect".
Started new full-time corporate (health-damagingly stressful) role. Trained in TM.
Added Kinesiology & Bach Flower Remedies to my qualifications. Paris Inspo Day.
Committed to a big year, come what may. Move into centre Bristol, help more clients.
The less we say about 2020 the better, right? If I'm honest it both sucked and was 👍🏼 .
Left corporate life to go "all in" in my biz (and for health reasons). Claimed my current-day niche.

— DEB B.
I've worked on my inner critic and boundaries at home and work, Pippa is no-nonsense and inspiring.
For the entirety of my coaching with Pippa, I felt inspired, uplifted, encouraged, held and guided.
— JOANNA A.
My coaching with Pippa has opened up endless possibilities now I give myself the time and TLC I need.
Let's have a virtual coffee as we're not all destined to be perfect for each other and I want to make sure I’m the right coach for you. FYI it's a bring your own coffee kinda deal.
