ABOUT ME

Hi.  My name is Sonia.

I help people navigate through real life. Messy relationships, sucky jobs, heartbreak, trauma, and dreams you’ve forgotten.

I believe in happiness.  I don’t believe in its relentless pursuit. Long term happiness, to me, actually looks more like contentment.  

We get so caught up in what we think happiness is supposed to look like that we forget what it actually is, or could be.

We get so caught up in trying to do the right thing that we lose sight of what the right thing is for us. 

We try so hard not to mess up that we become paralysed - unable to move forward.

And we spend so much time thinking there's something wrong with us that we never take the time to focus on what's right with us. 

I'd always assumed there was something wrong with me - so my own journey entailed trying to endlessly prove myself (perfectionism), trying to please everyone around me and moulding myself into a definition of success that didn't fit. 

This did not work out well. In my 20’s, it manifested in an eating disorder – and later a diagnosis of chronic anxiety and depression.  

So trust me when I say, I get it.

What I learned (through coaching and my coach training) was that those dark times were a catalyst.  An invitation to step further into myself.  Along with my yoga and meditation practice (which fit perfectly with what I learned in coaching) my life turned around.  

Yours can too. 

I know you CAN change your life.

Through the way you manage and regulate emotion, through changing the thoughts and beliefs you hold about yourself and the world.  And through changing the way you see your story.

You can learn to show up differently - whether it's in your personal life, as a business leader, or whatever role you happen to be playing.

It's not the easiest thing. It's the hardest thing. But the long term changes for your life are so well worth it, you won't regret for a second that you got started.

 Join Me.
