Home About Sophie

Like many of us, my life hasn’t followed one set path.

Having worked abroad as a Holiday Rep in my early 20’s I decided on a career in hospitality.  I found my way into Sales & Marketing , where I spent 15 years working in some amazing hotels around the country, learning valuable corporate skills both as a Manager and as part of the wider team.

More recently, I have launched and developed an Engineering Consultancy with my partner, which I continue to manage, bringing me face-to face with many new challenges associated with running a small business.  At the same time I re-trained and began to practice as a Life Coach and Counsellor – something that had been a great ambition of mine for many years.

Having been through changes and challenges myself – both professional and personal – I appreciate how difficult and unsettling these times can be.  Through my work I want to help people to reflect and challenge themselves, and create the most satisfying, worthwhile outcome possible.

One thing I have learned is that achieving balance in life leads to contentment.  With three children of my own and a passion for continuing to develop myself, I appreciate the difficulties and emotions associated with juggling a hectic work life with the demands of children, family, leisure time, health and taking care of ourselves.

Life is full of twists and turns, often bringing unexpected questions, challenges and difficulties.

I aim to help you accept the way your life has developed, gain a greater understanding of yourself, and find new opportunities in difficult situations.  There is no single solution to suit everyone, which is why I will work with you, at your own pace, to address areas that may feel difficult and identify how you wish to move forwards.  I will then provide you with the support, reassurance and empathy necessary to take these steps into your future.

I will provide you with a supportive and safe place in which to explore your options along with honest, straightforward feedback, and the opportunity to reflect and challenge yourself.  Only you can make change happen, but together we can make sure this change is positive.

I want to help you discover your true self and find happiness, whatever your individual goals.

What others say
about us

Nobody could ever replace your individual style, attention to detail, friendliness, professionalism and genuine enthusiasm for giving of your very best

AK, Norwich

Friends and family noticed a difference in me within weeks of my first session, and I feel so much calmer and confident, and also so positive about the future

HG, Norwich

You stuck to your word in not feeling sorry for me, and that you would talk through things with me in a way that would benefit me, and for that I am massively grateful. It made it a lot easier to open up.

T, Norfolk

The coaching sessions helped me to find a direction, we focussed on my skills and she helped me to discover what I wanted to do. My confidence and self esteem has grown, not only have I found another job but I feel ready for the challenges ahead. With her guidance I decided to apply for another role and have been successfully appointed – only six weeks after first turning to her.

RC, Norwich

I had the great pleasure of working with Sophie to deal with my obsession around healthy eating and pain management around my Crohns Disease. It helped me take control back and manage the negative thoughts the disease creates. I felt safe and secure and would thoroughly recommend her support to anyone.

J, Wymondham
