“You’ve inspired me more than you’ll ever know. I’m doing things that had been on my mind and ‘on my list’ for years. You’ve helped me to accept things that deep down I knew were there but I didn’t really want to admit, but you’ve done it in such an elegant and sophisticated way and allowed me to come to those conclusions for myself. 

Already my life has started to change because of you and everything you’ve done. I couldn't ask for any more in a coach, absolutely phenomenal."

Zoe Brown, Vegan Beauty & Wellbeing Blogger


“Sophie made me realise that dreams can be real and that I didn't have to be stuck doing something which caused me emotional pain. She helped me break down my fears and work out ways to overcome them, she helped me question my doubts and have faith in my ability. 

She helped me realise what was preventing me from achieving my goals and taught me ways to address them. If it wasn't for Sophie I wouldn't have had the courage in myself to go after my dream and start to make it a reality. She has literally helped change my life.” 


- Hannah Warwick, Founder of 9 Hole Event Hire


"Working with Sophie as my coach has been absolutely amazing for me and my business. I’m a photographer, and before I met Sophie, I had a big list of goals I wanted to achieve, and was really struggling with my confidence and the motivation to make them happen. So I realised I couldn’t do it on my own anymore and needed some extra support, which is when I found Sophie, and she’s been absolutely incredible ever since. I knew that we’d be a good fit because she has such an amazing positive energy that’s infectious, and even just being around her for an hour, makes you believe you can take on the world, which is an amazing quality in a coach. And it has been so true...

She’s really boosted my confidence and helped me to believe in myself, which has led to me being able to increase my prices and get booked out a few months in advance, which is something I really wanted to achieve in our time together. I’ve also been a lot more intentional about the way I run my business, because she's taught me how to trust my intuition more, set really healthy boundaries, and loads of things I couldn’t have done on my own. I’ve really loved our experience working together, and I can’t believe how much I’ve achieved in such a short time. Sophie always has the right thing to say, whether you’ve got a win to celebrate, or you’re in a difficult situation and you’re not sure how to deal with it, she’s always on hand to help out and make you feel confident again that you’ve got this! I couldn’t recommend her enough as a coach, she’s absolutely amazing. Thank you Sophie for all your help!”

"Sophie completely changed the projection of my life and my business.  She led me from the spark of the dream of my business that was stuck in constant fear, worry and uncertainty into a mindset that fuelled me to support myself and my business, which in turn has spilled over into a new level of support to my clientele.

My favourite part of our time together has to be the incredible VIP day where we worked fully on my business, what I want to create and what I need to get there, mindset, vision, dreams and planning. From my message to my website, every part of my business has been encouraged and supported by Sophie and I feel renewed and so driven in my business to continue to grow and flourish in new ways.  I have doubled my prices and my clients and continue to grow, expand to selling online and hosting my own workshop.

As well as all of that, Sophie really helped me to challenge and grow a mindset around money and finance that is just so much healthier and way more consistent than before using her NLP magic to help me break free from old patterns. I would advise anyone who needs to return to a feeling of flourishing instead of shrinking within their business to book in with Sophie now.”

Fenella Powell, Life Coach


 

"Sophie opens your eyes to all the possibilities you didn’t believe were there before. I gained a new confidence I didn’t know I had, discovered passions I didn’t know I had, and it set me on an exciting new path. I’m so much more positive - before I was just stuck in a sucky job and didn’t have the courage or motivation to leave. Now, I’ve quit my job, and I’m pursuing my biggest passion: writing! Because now it’s an option - a real option! Sophie helped me to discover that and to admit it to myself, and for that I’m so very grateful."

"I wanted to thank you for all your help in our work together so far. As you know last year my head was a complete jumble of despair and I had lost a lot of confidence and was so confused about what I wanted to do. With your support I turned a big corner this year and was really able to focus on what I wanted and what I needed to do. 

In the past when I have applied for jobs I haven’t told anyone or if I have, have caveated it with ‘but I probably won’t get it’ as I haven’t wanted to look like a failure. With this interview I wasn’t so worried about telling people and had confidence in my ability and also wasn’t worried about the outcome. I wasn’t crippled with nerves as I have been in the past and kept it together in the run up to the interview. On the day, naturally I was nervous a bit but that was just a small thing that was to be expected rather than all I was thinking about. I was so calm and confident and I believe everything we worked on together led me to that point and it really worked as there were supposed to be three rounds of interviews but they offered me the role after the second one. (Now I’m just showing off!)."


 

"My VIP Day with Sophie was completely inspiring, invigorating and much needed!

From initial contact with Sophie to the end of the VIP day, she has been an absolute pleasure to work with and the whole process has felt easy, natural and exciting. It has been worth every single penny.

In just one day, I’ve learnt to question myself if I automatically decide that I can’t do something – Sophie has a fantastic skill whereby five minutes after I said I couldn’t do something, I would be reeling off how I was going to do it and more! When a goal seemed completely unattainable Sophie helped me work out small, actionable steps which made it seem totally possible.

I got really clear on my goals and I was also reminded of the vision and meaning behind my business – I’d kind of lost sight of this along the way but talking things through with Sophie allowed me to see with clarity that this should underpin everything we do!

A big breakthrough for me was Sophie saying to me that I ran a six-figure business. I laughed! Then looked at the accounts and realised it was true… I had been so focussed on the negatives in terms of finance and profit that I had failed to see what I’d achieved in terms of turnover. That made me really proud and I hope that I will continue to remind myself of this to boost my business confidence.

Sophie made me realise that it’s ok to ‘want what you want’ and that by putting intention and emotional feelings behind a goal makes it much easier to work towards.

After our day I felt totally stimulated, my brain hadn’t been used like that in a long time and it felt good. I felt so much clearer about the vision for the future and it was so great to have actionable steps in front of me to start working on straight away. I felt inspired, motivated and brimming with excitement for the future!

Since our day together I have already begun to put things into place to help me achieve my goals, such as setting time aside in my diary for new ideas and product development; arranging meetings and printing off a big artwork with the business vision to display in the studio 

Before our day I was feeling aimless and unmotivated about the direction of the business, uncomfortable about finance and generally a bit flat. Sophie has given me a renewed sense of accomplishment and much more clarity about the future and what it is I want to achieve, both personally and professionally. I feel like I’m able to see the ‘bigger picture’ and give myself, my health and my wellbeing the same importance as the business success.  

I think Sophie should be prescribed on the NHS!"

“Sophie will make you feel empowered, positive & productive. She helps to clear the chaos and fog of daily life and really helps you get down to what is important, why you want it and what you need to do to get it, whether that’s in work or life. 

After our session, my brain was full of ideas and ultimately I felt so much clearer about the next steps I should be taking. I feel so much more in control of where my business is going. I’ve been given the push I needed to face the things I’ve been putting off and I want to say a huge thank you!”

Gabi Cox, Founder of Chroma Stationery

 

"I wasn’t ready for a full-on coach as my business is super new, but when I saw Sophie's Magic Activation VIP Day - I knew it was perfect! I booked on the VIP day and as I knew she would be, Sophie was great: switched on, on the ball, super lovely, and she really knows her stuff.

The VIP day was full of talking, meditation (something brand new for me), coaching and strategy building. Sophie shared with me her copywriting skills, strategy knowledge and business growth skills. We had a plan for the day and Sophie kept me on track throughout, but also allowed me to be myself which I value above all else. It was a super focused, busy day, with a lovely lunch break and time to chill out together at the end. This is the 1st of many activation days for me and Sophie, I can't wait to book in the next one! She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy and focused which is great.

I felt comfortable and reassured by Sophie's sweet character but business mindset. I really loved her style of coaching and she has supported me over the last few months in such a perfect way.

Honestly Sophie, you are a star coach! You calm me and my busy brain down and I am super excited for my business journey now we have got the right strategy for me."

If you want to get your shit together..Sophie is the one to help you do this. Be prepared to transform your life.
— Krupa Shikotra, Yoga Teacher

I wouldn’t describe it as just coaching as it became so much more. It was difficult at times because you really start to evaluate yourself including your fears and flaws. After that you just are more in control of your life and business. Sophie’s coaching gives you the confidence and tools to take your business and life to the next level..the level you are totally ready for without even knowing it! 

If you want to get your shit together..Sophie is the one to help you do this. Be prepared to transform your life.

I learnt that I was actually already a pretty successful being and also not to be too hard on myself and knowing that it's ok to have chill time and also ok to have dark times.

Before we worked together I was wrapped up and worried about things that were insignificant and also self hating quite alot.

Now I’m content with the way my business is going and impressed at how far I’ve come and almost can’t believe I’m achieving as much as I am and how many doors have opened for me.

Most importantly, I now believe in myself.

Thank you Sophie for making me...see me. You’re real and I wouldn’t have had the balls to do the things I do now if it wasn’t for you!

"Coaching with Sophie is wonderful! Sessions make you feel lighter and ready to take action, while also being a great place to vent and get anything off your chest!

If you’re thinking about making a leap in your personal or professional life, Sophie is the perfect person to give you a motivational push - and catch you on the other side. I felt motivated and spurred into action after every session.

During my time with Sophie, my most valuable learning was around how to take care of myself, which is exactly what I needed. Realising that I needed to come first and making that a priority has allowed me to then make changes in my business without putting myself under unnecessary pressure. 

Before we worked together I was working full-time and had a side hustle (Girls Empowered). I was overworked and pretty miserable. I am now leaving full-time employment to launch my own marketing services and focus more on other things I’m passionate about. And I’m making sure my first week of working for myself is all about getting myself into a good routine and being kind to myself!"

If you'd have told me in January I'd be smashing my financial targets, living the dream life with a gorgeous puppy and fiancée and planning an incredible wedding I'd have laughed in your face. I was head-on-desk stressed out and wouldn't even dare think about doing anything that wasn't working. All the overwhelm means sticking your head in the sand and hoping it'll go away right?!

Sophie helped me see what was holding me back, what was making me feel terrible and helped me feel empowered enough to release it. And now? I'm working when and where I feel like it, booking some holidays and looking at growing the #dreamteam to enable us to work with even more beautiful businesses!
