Navigate your life transitions with wisdom and confidence

Emotional intelligence & leadership coaching for professionals in science and finance

Dr Sophie Coaching

Do you think MEN or WOMEN are better equipped to be LEADERS?

This short document will provide you with an eye-opening perspective on widely spread yet inaccurate beliefs about men leaders versus female leaders. Yet leadership qualities have nothing to do with gender.

My emotional intelligence & leadership coaching practice is there to support each person’s cultivation of their own well-rounded set of leadership qualities, so they can reach their full potential as leaders, regardless of their gender.

Just call me Dr Sophie.

I specialize in working with professionals with careers in science or finance. They are smart and accomplished individuals, often family-oriented and devoted partners. They find themselves feeling unsatisfied in their full and overwhelming lives. Deep down, they yearn for a meaningful and fulfilling next chapter of existence.

I am here to guide you on a transformative journey where you can gain understanding and perspective on key topics of emotional intelligence, intentional leadership and positive psychology. I will equip you with the tools and techniques to intentionally create a more fulfilling life for yourself. You’ll realize that you have all the resources within you to transform your life and embrace the leader you truly are.

Let me teach you the powerful tools and techniques that will empower you to navigate life with confidence, clarity, and purpose. Through my confidential, expert, and non-judgmental approach, you will discover the incredible potential that resides within you and learn how to harness it to create the life you truly desire.

Do you even know what you are capable of as a leader of your own life? Let’s embark on this journey together. Book a discovery call right now and let’s explore how we can work together to unlock your true potential. 😊

The experience of coaching with Dr Sophie was 100% positive
I had been considering retirement (on and off) for about 8 months but I had not made much progress on my own, so I was ready to try a different approach with coaching. Coaching helped me rapidly progress from a theoretical consideration of retirement to taking the practical steps needed for an informed decision. Coaching helped me understand what I feared and what I could look forward to. As a result of coaching, I became less stressed about taking some decisions. I became aware of the things that I needed to do to make some choices and I stopped feeling pressure. I became more aware of the pros and cons and I now see how my previous thoughts were blocked by unconscious assumptions and biases. Dr Sophie has a very good capacity to analyse our conversations and listen to the emotions that I expressed without jumping to conclusions. She helped me understand my feelings through questions using my own words, and helped me map out a path towards resolving some of the circular logic that I had gotten stuck into. I liked her positive, critical, calm and focused approach. She was able to step back and switch to another discussion pathway, whenever I came to a dead end. Dr Sophie kept guiding me through to the positive emotions while acknowledging and perhaps questioning the negative ones. I felt that she genuinely wanted to help me progress and that I was in safe, unbiased hands. I have already recommended coaching with Dr Sophie to several colleagues and friends. The experience of coaching with Dr Sophie was 100% positive.

Very professional and organised yet conversational and natural
The experience of coaching with Dr Sophie was very professional, organised yet conversational and natural. She is a great listener and enabled me to acknowledge some of the emotions I was facing with an open mind. What I appreciated the most when coaching with Dr Sophie is that she is not just “dropping” tools, ideas or perspectives here and there, but actually is coming back methodically and consistently, yet gently, to nudge and guide the conversation towards self-exploration.

Professional, open and quick turnaround on challenges presented

I was curious about coaching with you as this would be a first for me. I did not know what to expect but wanted to learn more about myself and my life. It turned out to be varied and insightful about my posture in life and with others.

I feel I’ve gained a different perspective on some life aspects. Like not caring so much about others’ opinions about me. I appreciated very much your openness, your quick turnaround on the topics we defined (on the spot, even) with no preparation and your professionalism.

Helped me to become more solutions-oriented and less obsessive

Work is an important part of my life, a part that I want to get better and excel at. In the past I always felt a bit distanced from the coaches I had in the sense that I felt they were a bit removed from my reality. With you, Sophie, I felt such a gap is reduced and that you knew the work environment, and you knew my reality.

As a result of working with you, I do find myself thinking nowadays, when I am ruminating on something “is there a different way of thinking about it?” or “is this thought really helping me solve the issue?”

You have offered me a different perspective. I now think that with practice and persistence, I will become more consistently solutions-oriented and less obsessive.

I gained more awareness of my reactions and how I can control them

I decided to try out coaching, because I was interested to learn more about how it could help in my professional life. I am at a career stage where I am getting more management responsibilities, so I feel I need to develop skills around managing people. I enjoyed coaching with Dr Sophie, especially because she was open, seemed interested and cared.

Thanks to coaching, I feel I gained more awareness of my reactions and how I can control them, e.g. just because I feel frustrated in a situation does not mean I have to continue in a negative spiral.

Coaching helped me become more aware that I am not responsible for the feelings and reactions of others. I feel that I am now better able to say no and define my own boundaries and stick to them – this helping notably with time management. I feel more in control of time management and know I can handle situations. Coaching has definitely helped me be more self-aware.
