She now delivers NVR training alongside other topics including Life Journey Work, Contact, Challenging Behaviour, 2nd Time Round Adoption and Adoption UK’s flagship training “Parenting our Children”. 

Philippa’s adopted children are now in their 20’s. In her spare time she enjoys long walks along flat paths and short cycles along flat routes.
