I help people maintain long-term recovery.
I'm Sophie. At the heart of my recovery coaching practice is a firm belief in an individual’s capacity for change and personal transformation. I also truly believe in the value of a coach, because it’s one of the main reasons I am thriving in life today, free from past damaging patterns and behaviours. To read about my coaching methodology, please visit the Coaching page.
Experience is our biggest opportunity to grow. I use my personal transformative experiences to help others encounter long term, rewarding personal growth and life satisfaction 'on the other side’ of addiction. It is possible to attain, and maintain, a life of meaning, purpose and joy in recovery.
I thrive on helping others find their experience of 'flow' – a state of being in which you are fully immersed and at one with what you are doing. The mental, physical, and spiritual are all in sync working in perfect accord toward reaching the vision.
With extensive experience in the corporate world, I have a deep understanding of the needs of executive level individuals and for discretion with these delicate matters. I use my lived experience to help others on a journey I know well myself.
I am accredited with the International Coaches' Register: the worldwide quality mark for active and excellently trained professional coaches.
Feeding the right wolf is not merely the difference between a good or bad day.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
The moral of this story is quite obvious and gives everyone reason to pause and reflect. However, for those in recovery, feeding the right wolf is not merely the difference between a good or bad day. It can be life or death.
There are indeed two wolves. For those with a struggle of addiction, they are defined a bit differently: one is recovery and the other is a relapse.
