“I just wanted to thank you for all of the coaching throughout the past 6 months. You helped me immensely. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to coach with you, and am excited for each and every client who has the same privilege. You are a phenomenal coach, and the world is better because of the work you are doing.”
Thank you so much Sophie <3 These calls are so powerful. I feel like I’ve done so much and looking back I see how things are so different. The work we’re doing is really fun. If we hadn’t been doing this work together, I would be spiraling in quarantine. I’m really happy with where I am because I didn’t think I could ever get here, and I’m really excited to continue doing this work.
“Coaching is one of those things that often sounds a little too good to be true, or can easily be dismissed as unnecessary, something to be pushed off for an ambiguous "later." I've had several years of great experience seeing a therapist and I consider myself to be someone who is in tune with her emotions, so I wasn't entirely sure I "needed" coaching. This will probably just be a reiteration of mental tools I already have, I thought.
On one account, I wasn't wrong. I didn't need coaching. I could have continued on the way I was, and I'm sure I would have lived a perfectly adequate life navigating the ups and downs and trying and trying, whenever it became relevant, to cope with my bad habits and unhealthy ways of thinking.
On the other hand, however, I completely underestimated the power of Sophie's guidance. When I say that my life was changed after the very first call she and I had, I'm not exaggerating. I know it sounds too good to be true. It sounds like I'm just gassing this up. It feels like I should have had to struggle harder, to get to a point where the very fabric of my life was altered.
But it's the truth.
It wasn't that the call was perfect or seamless--honestly, at first I felt so awkward and exposed. But Sophie knows exactly how to meet you right where you're at, and she uses a gentle strength completely unique to her style that helps you recognize the parts of your life you have the power to change. (Hint: it's all of them. And that's not an exaggeration, either.) For me, that meant undoing decades of insidious, self-sabotaging habits that had defined who I was as a person. Sophie literally took the biggest struggle of my entire life and walked me through how to solve it in a matter of hours.
It's okay to live an okay life. But today I feel like I am truly alive, and it's thanks to Sophie. I can attest that her coaching will translate into visible, immediate results in your mind and right before your eyes.
Even if it sounds unbelievable, that is a fact.”
“your work is incredible and has done so much for me. Working with you has forced me in the best way possible--beautifully and brutally--to look at things that I needed to look at. Sometimes in life we shy away from things instead of looking at them because it’s not super cozy or it makes us feel scared, because being the greatest version of ourselves can actually be scary. But you have made me look at all of the details and the things that are required to get to where I want to be. You have beautifully transformed the way I think about those things and the way I approach life. And there are a million other things I could say. You also do this thing where in life we want these goals but we have this habit of being vague about them so we just think in our heads “well I want this” but we don’t actually look at it hard in detail. In order to get those goals we have to get specific and clear and you are a HUGE part of the process of doing that. You actually made me define my goals and define the steps I need to take to get those goals. You helped me see that I am fully capable of doing these things and fully capable of holding myself accountable to creating the life of my dreams. This is an unbelievable gift you’ve given me through your work.”
