"The freedom to create one's self is the foundational freedom of all life. One current definition of "life" in biology is that something is alive if it is capable of producing itself.
The word is auto-poiesis, from the same root as poetry. Every living being is author of its own existence, and continues to create itself through its entire life span."
Margaret J. Wheatley
"I have been a registered nurse for 13 years, predominantly working in the critical care areas as an Emergency and Intensive Care nurse. I thrive on helping others in all aspects of my life and am lucky that nursing allows me to care for others professionally. As my career has progressed, however, I have noticed that I am taking longer to recover from the personal toll it can take and have begun to question how sustainable this role is for me, and where I belong.
Pippa’s leadership, guidance and compassion have provided me with great comfort and direction. Our work together has revealed that helping myself is in fact helping others. I have developed strategies, am learning self-compassion, and find myself building my resilience. I feel like Pippa is holding my hand every step of the way. She is caring, pragmatic and professional. Our sessions together leave me feeling supported in taking charge of my future."
