Over the course of 5 months you’ll go on an in-depth journey of personal development to understand your personal leadership challenges and explore your unique strengths that will enable you to step up in, influence and impact your experience of life to harness deeper meaning and satisfaction.

Together, through targeted coaching techniques, we will address negative thinking patterns, help you break free from unproductive habits, and equip you with the tools to navigate your leadership and life challenges with resilience and grace. Together, we will empower you to lead with confidence, authenticity, and a clear sense of purpose.

Are you experiencing emotional exhaustion, feeling overwhelmed and unfulfilled in various key areas of your life? You’re not alone.

Many individuals in mid-life find themselves in a similar situation, wondering why they feel this way and searching for answers.

It’s natural to question if there’s something wrong with you, and if you have what it takes to address and successfully go through this next transition and transformation (move, life-change, adversity, promotion, retirement etc.).

In your relentless pursuit of managing multiple responsibilities, you may feel like you’re aimlessly running around.

There’s never enough time for yourself, for deep reflection, or for true rest. This constant state of busyness can have negative repercussions that affect all aspects of your life.

Anxiety creeps in, self-esteem takes a hit, and relationships suffer – from loved ones to partners and even your children.

The isolation and loss of energy can leave you feeling disconnected from your purpose and unfulfilled. It’s a slippery slope that may lead to burnout and other issues such as depression, illness etc.

Despite your efforts, you may feel stuck in a cycle of emotional overload, resorting to ineffective coping mechanisms that only provide temporary relief. It can be frustrating not knowing where to find a sustainable, pragmatic, and self-empowering approach to address your negative emotional experiences. You yearn for a way to break free from this dysfunctional pattern and regain control of your life.

The good news is that there is a way forward. You have the potential to transform into a sage and confident leader of your own life, equipped with the tools of emotional intelligence and leadership.

As a skilled coach, I am here to guide you on this transformative journey. Together, we’ll explore the depths of your emotions, unravel the root causes behind your struggles, and develop effective strategies to enhance your life experience with fulfilment.

Together, we’ll embark on a transformative journey that will empower you to not only overcome the emotional exhaustion and overwhelm but also become a resilient leader in all areas of your life.

We’ll dive deep into your mindset, working to shift limiting beliefs that hold you back from fully showing up in the world. By nurturing your emotional intelligence, you’ll gain the clarity, resilience, and confidence to navigate life’s challenges and lead yourself with authenticity and wisdom.

I understand how stuck, exhausted, lonely or even lost and hopeless you may feel at times.

The weight of your responsibilities can leave you feeling isolated and unheard. But I want you to know that with the right guidance and support, you can reclaim your power, embrace your inner sage, and become a confident leader of your life.

Let’s embark on this transformative journey together and create a life filled with purpose, connection, and true fulfilment.

It’s time to reframe how your approach your mindset, certain life situations and your personal growth and satisfaction as the sage and confident leader you are within!

I’m going to give you my 100% support and dedication in your leadership journey. I’m going to help you gain awareness of how you manage your emotions and take a healthy distance from the behaviours and copings you have put in place so far.

I am going to guide you with observation and anticipation of concrete life situations so you can develop more resilience and self-confidence. I’ll help you tap within your emotional resources of (e.g.) compassion and love for others (and yourself) so you are emotionally equipped for future challenges.

Together, we will explore effective strategies to overcome the overwhelm, develop your leadership capabilities, and cultivate a balanced perspective. Through targeted coaching techniques, we will address negative thinking patterns, help you break free from unproductive habits, and equip you with the tools to navigate challenges with resilience and grace. Together, we will empower you to lead with confidence, authenticity, and a clear sense of purpose.

By learning and practicing the incorporation of your unique leadership vision into your life, you can be certain to be more empowered and inspired to continue your personal development journey confidently and lead your life to the full, whatever that means for you.

In a few months you will realise how savouring your life is completely within your reach. You are on a path to live the life you truly want.

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.

Senior Finance Professional & Team Leader, European Institution

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.

Why work with me?

Personalized Coaching for Curious Minds and Scientific Approach

I specialize in helping curious individuals who are eager to understand how their brains work and how to exercise their mindset to improve their lives.

If you value a scientific, non-dogmatic approach to psychology and self-development, then my coaching style will resonate with you.

I go beyond the simplified information often found in mainstream discourse on “positive thinking” and delve into the depths of personal growth.

Together, we can explore your power to evolve into a more self-realized individual, embracing your potential instead of resigning to fatalism. 

Scientific Expertise with Pragmatic Guidance

What sets me apart from other coaches is my background as a scientist. I am dedicated to focusing on scientifically-proven methods and expertise, including extensive research. I debunk misinformation and inaccuracies that are prevalent in topics such as leadership, positive psychology, mental health, and emotional well-being. Additionally, I balance this scientific approach with a pragmatic mindset, guiding you towards your inner wisdom and addressing the specific challenges that modern women and men face. I have the ability to make complex information accessible to diverse audiences, ensuring that you can easily understand and apply the insights we explore together.

Embracing Individuality and Navigating the Well-being Spectrum

As an open-minded and non-dogmatic coach, I reject the notion of one-size-fits-all solutions or quick fixes. I recognize that well-being is not a binary issue but rather a spectrum of emotions and behaviours that can be improved upon over time. I am committed to helping you navigate this spectrum, empowering you to find increased fulfilment within yourself. With exposure to a variety of tools and solutions in the field of mental wellbeing, resilience and leadership, I offer a unique perspective on the support options available. I can guide you through the sometimes confusing landscape of finding the right path towards personal growth and fulfilment.

Genuine Care: Empathy, Understanding, and Personal Growth

I genuinely care about the problems my clients face because I empathize with their experiences and emotions. I understand the common challenges and unaddressed issues that middle-aged individuals, professionals, parents, partners and family members often encounter due to societal expectations and pressures, all accepted beliefs. By gaining a better understanding of what is happening within themselves, my clients can move from resentment to acceptance, understanding, compassion, and self-love. Together, we can navigate negative thought spirals, lack of focus, and a sense of purposelessness, leveraging your inner resources to create positive change in your life.
