She did further training in the United States of America under Dr Jerry Tennant, who has received numerous international awards for his services to the advancement of medicine http://tennantinstitute.com/.

Pip received the Queens Service Medal (QSM) in recognition of her significant contribution to New Zealand government policy on workplace toxicity which culminated in the Ministerial Inquiry into Certain Hazardous Substances in the Workplace. She is also a life member of the Plunket Society for her services to child health. Since 2007 Pip has been the New Zealand representative on the Scenar Therapists’ Association of Australia (STAA).

Pip is keen to see SCENAR in less privileged parts of the world because it is ideal for use in emergency and trauma as well as chronic conditions. She travelled to India with Alicia and Ian Melrose, and Homeopath Angela Hair, to help set up Scenar Therapy in the Health Clinic and villages of the Makaibari Organic Tea Estate in Northern India.
