I believe that all of you is gorgeous and deeply fucking awesome!
I believe that it's about time you gave yourself permission to be all of the things that you are, no matter where, who with and quite frankly, WTF you might be wearing or doing!
How many more years will you wait?
You've likely spent a long damn time learning those bits that you're "allowed" to show, twisting yourself into all sorts of Human Pretzel shapes, to fit in, to comply and to be what others need you to be for them to feel comfortable (hello the Patriarchy 👋🏼).
From Pretzel to Rebel is my signature coaching programme. It is four to six months of deep and transformative work that will get to the heart of YOU and cultivate the courage to live that Courageous Rebel out loud.
Being truly SEEN and visible in the world! No more Human Pretzel for you - let the world see ALL of you! Let's be real: being visible is our Kryptonite. Be patient, it will come.
Having the courage to advocate for yourself and what you need. Self-care lives here too. Let's be real: advocating for yourself is HARD and takes practice!
Discovering the REAL you! Peeling away the layers of those learnt behaviours and characteristics. Let's be real: which ones are YOU and which ones are your pretzel?
Reducing the number of fucks you give what other people think of you. Let's be real: we're social animals - it's normal to care what people think - just not TOO much!
CLICK ON A NUMBER TO SEE EACH OF THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF BELONGING
We are unique and wonderful humans which means our Human Pretzels are completely unique as well. Like any great architect, when we're looking at the plans to build your Home of Belonging, we will look at what works in your dream home and what doesn't. The 6 building blocks of belonging form the foundation of our work together; we'll get to grips with where work is needed on each one in your home, and tailor-make our approach just for you!
How well do you know the real you? It’s not as weird a question as it might sound. We get given the “how to be a successful human” blueprint from childhood and it tells us what we should be, do and think, and what is expected of us to be accepted. Get to KNOW the real you down to your very foundations. From your personal values to your personality traits, from your strengths to what you really stand for.
What dreams do you have? What’s the big vision for your life? What’s that secret dream that comes to you in the quiet moments, but you’ve always put it aside for another you, in another lifetime? Let’s dig deep and find your purpose and your “why” and create that big vision just for you. Let’s rip up that fucking blueprint full of shoulds and create a new plan fit for the courageous rebel you’re reclaiming.
Self-care lives here, but it’s not all bubble baths and meditation at the Home of Belonging. Nurture is also a meandering pathway to self-acceptance, getting comfortable asking for and receiving help and quietening your inner Mildred (who, let’s face it, has your best interests at heart anyway). Oh, and fellow perfectionists - dealing with pesky perfectionism lives here too.
So, the trouble with the “successful human blueprint” is that fast forward 20 years and we’ve internalised all those expectations, ways to show up and “acceptable humaning” and we live that blueprint like we really fucking mean it! We’re going to create Your Sovereign Life Manifesto to help you strike that courageous rebel power pose. Firm but flexible boundaries are in here too.
Standing tall in your sovereign life, you know who you are, what you want and how you plan to show up in the world. But long-held beliefs, habits and ways of being take time to change and rocking your Courageous Rebel takes time too. In truth it’s easier to revert to our tried and tested pretzel ways. Advocating for yourself is cultivating self-trust and self-belief to support yourself in what you need in your life.
As a ninety-year-old Courageous Rebel, how do you want to have lived your life? What do you want to be remembered for? Will you leave this world a tiny bit better for your presence in it? Going back to KNOW, what you stand for and what do you stand against, what do you want to be different in the world and how can you be of service and be a part of the change, no matter how big or small?
Getting crystal clear on who they really are and what really matters - none of this “up a mountain navel-gazing with a goat*” crap, real talk and tools to get to their very foundations.
Ready to find and live their vision and purpose – they’re unleashing that recurring secret dream and bringing it into their reality.
Feeling amazing putting themselves first (and also a bit wobbly), asking for help and wrapping their heads around this self-care malarkey – and doing it all their way!
Developing some shit-hot boundaries and learning to navigate the thin line between hard-ass brick wall and pliable people-pleaser.
Discovering that there’s a bit of them that’s convinced they can change the world! There’s stuff they’re just not OK with and they’re stepping up to be part of the solution.
Practicing cultivating the kind of courage that means they give a lot less fucks what anyone else thinks and they save their fucks given for what really matters.
*for the record I hold no goat-related grudges and would love to sit on a mountain and gaze at my navel. With a goat.
First I'll send you my deep dive Preztel to Rebel questionnaire. Don't worry it's not like homework, but it will get to the heart of it and allow you to 'go there' before our first session. We will bespoke where your pretzel needs untangling and focus our work in all the right places. Once I've got your questionnaire, I might be in touch to clarify something or we could jump straight in and book that first session.
We'll meet online on Zoom for 90-minutes for our first session to allow us to really dig deep and lay those important first foundations. We might set some goals, or it might be about how you want to feel or even the vision you have for your life in 4-6 months' time. After that, it's a 60-minute session every two weeks where you will grow your Home of Belonging one courageous brick at a time.
Think of me as your quantity surveyor - the woman who makes sure the build is going to plan, answers all those pesky questions and keeps you to task. Between sessions I'm your momentum buddy, I'm at the end of an email or a Voxer message for questions, moral support, a great GIF (please do send these!) and to help you keep laying those bricks every damn day!
I WANT IN
Time to be brave, to be bold, to be ALL of you! This transformational journey will challenge you to the very core, in the best way possible. It’s no cake-walk, but I can promise you one thing, there’s a damn good chance you’ll actually get to have your cake and eat it* by the end of our time together.

my coaching WITH PIPPA has opened up endless possibilitieS, Now I give myself the time and TLC I NEED.
This is definitely not a “one and done” job my friend. There are no tick boxes over here, so set that To-Do List down my friend. Think of From Pretzel to Rebel as a long term house renovation - you’re not going to rush in and do the whole place up in a few weeks and then hate the carpet within the year! You’re going to take your time to lovingly understand what it needs so that it feels just like home.
We’ll get down and deep and into some of the big stuff for sure, but I’ll be there with you every step of the way; for every wallpaper choice, every rug selection and definitely on the day we go houseplant shopping.
AS SEEN IN
You’re a bad-ass A-type achiever, yet you still spend a whole lot of time “fitting in” and twisting yourself to do, say and be what is expected of you.
You just want to be yourself! How hard can it be? You know who you are, what you want and how to get it, right? Or you thought you did but lately you’ve been wondering what’s you and what’s your pretzel!
You’re pretty convinced you’re a feminist but what does that even mean? You do know though, that you’re done with the misogynistic, racist BS narrative that runs through every-damn-thing and you want to be part of the solution.
You're ready to do-the-work it takes to start to untangle your Human Pretzel. You’re not all about the “easy” you’re about the “worth it” and you're all in baby!
You need someone to help you take action, to stay on the path and keep taking those steps, even when you’d really rather run back in the house and hide behind the sofa (aka especially when)!
I WANT TO CULTIVATE THE COURAGE NEEDED TO GIVE A LOT LESS FUCKS WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK AND SAVE MY FUCKS FOR SHIT THAT MATTERS!
I'M ready to learn to trust and believe in MYself no matter what, I know it could be a bit vulnerable, but I'M ready anyway.
I'M ready to tear up the “how to be a successful human” blueprint and to write MY own rules from now on!
i'm done with twisting myself around like a human pretzel just to fit in, only to feel like i still don't belong - not really.
"Pippa was able to see through to the heart of what it was I was striving for, she helped me feel confident in myself."
"Pippa helped me feel confident in myself to take some big, positive steps both in my day job and in building up my business. She has been fundamental in setting a really solid foundation for me to grow from. She was generous with her knowledge and insight, gentle in her challenges and always quick to point out where I was taking steps forward. Pippa’s open, honest and genuine approach (not to mention our shared sense of humour) made me feel truly seen and heard. A real pleasure to work with."
"It has taken some time to put into words how incredible my coaching with Pippa was, there's so much I want to say!"
"I was drawn to Pippa’s authenticity, realness and wicked sense of humour and I was not disappointed as she brought all of this and so much more to our sessions. When we began I wasn't really sure exactly where I wanted it to go, I just knew that I needed to dig deep to find that extra spark for my business and my life. Enter Pippa… during our time together she gently guided me towards my own inner knowing with her completely no-nonsense and delightful approach. For the entirety of my coaching series, I felt inspired, uplifted, encouraged, held and guided."
"Pippa is an outstanding coach, she is a natural and her authenticity can be felt across continents!"
From our first session, I felt a sense of calm wash over me... I knew I’d made a good choice and that I was in good hands. I had some soul searching to do from the great questions Pippa asked me. My experience has been grounding and transformational. Pippa is a true professional and an outstanding coach, she blends in just enough warm and fuzzy alongside the tough love. She is a natural and her authenticity can be felt across continents!"
"I've worked on my inner critic and boundaries at home and work, Pippa is no-nonsense and inspiring."
"My coaching experience surpassed all expectations I'd ever dreamed of. Pippa helped me see past what I thought was my focus was and find what really mattered – short term versus long term goals. Saying ‘No’, delegating and letting go of striving and perfectionism has got so much easier. I really wasn’t sure what my goals were when I started, but I ended up not only developing and running a trial of my iThemba cards workshop, but also working on my inner critic and boundaries at home and work. My coaching was a combination of no-nonsense and inspired!"
"I was amazed at the progress that I made between those two sessions and am still continuing to make"
"I had been following Pippa on social media and reading her newsletters for a while and I jumped at the chance to work with her! And I was not disappointed! I was drawn to work with Pippa because of her work around belonging. We covered some areas that I was expecting linked to that and also some that were a bit of a surprise to me (in a good way!). I thoroughly enjoyed the experience on the day itself, as well as the follow-up session online. Pippa really is the perfect person to break down those perfectionism barriers!"
"My coaching with Pippa has opened up endless possibilities, now I give myself the time and TLC I need."
"I used to go through life trying not to be noticed and putting up with so much crap…now I love myself enough to embrace who I really am. I used to want everyone to like me, as an introvert giving so much of myself away, leaving me feeling depleted. Now I give myself the time and TLC to regain my energies for life’s challenges. Learning to 'love, understand and respect myself' has been pretty enlightening, and at the same time it’s been bloody knackering!"

My mission at the Home of Belonging is a simple one: I want to help thousands of courageous rebels untangle their Human Pretzel and build a home of belonging within themselves.
We’ve been taught to be Human Pretzels, twisting ourselves into every possible shape to fit in. Conforming to the expectations of others, for their comfort and for us to feel a sense of belonging. But this isn’t real belonging!
Real belonging is being courageous enough to bring all of you every day, no matter what, where and who with. It’s not having your belonging held to ransom by other people’s willingness or ability to accept you as you are. It’s building a home of belonging within yourself and I’d love to help you do just that!
