Pip is also employed by the University of Canterbury as the Clinical Educator on the Masters of Counselling programme, where she lectures on reflective practice and effective supervision, and supervises counselling students. Pip’s clinical experience has been predominantly in the NGO sector where she’s worked with children, adolescents, couples and families, and largely with trauma resulting from sexual violence and the Christchurch earthquakes. Her approach to therapy is integrative, constellated around the potency of expressive arts therapy and informed by her initial training as a massage therapist. Pip has a particular passion for the efficacy of writing therapy and transpersonal considerations in therapy. She holds a Diploma of Complementary Health Therapy, an undergraduate degree in English Literature, a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling (Massey University), and a Masters in Arts Therapy (Whitecliffe College of Art and Design).
