Philippa immigrated from South Africa to the USA after she fled from a violently abusive marriage and resolved to learn a lesson and be more careful next time. In America she met a man who, on the surface, was everything that her second husband was not.
It took a third abusive marriage for her to understand that until she owned her own contribution to the dance of abuse she was destined to repeat the pattern. Her story exists as proof of this.
She co-wrote WHEN LOVING HIM HURTS– recovery from an abusive relationship and THE AFFAIR - recovery from illicit sex, lies and betrayal.
