Begin with a deep conversation, nothing else matters for now. 

Deep-Shift Conversation.
I think we all welcome insight around our impossible dreams. What if it is possible, right? What if? And perhaps most of us really do want to deal with the persistent voices that hold us back. So forget safe goals for now. Forget the probable. What if you envision yourself as a leader in your life, in your organization? What would that look and feel like? What if you could get really, really clear on your aspirations, your vision, your impossible dream? What if you could go for it, not in a haphazard way (I am not big on following our passions blindly), but with a consistency fueled by unstoppable motivation and wise strategy? What if you could even scale up the magnitude of your purpose? What happens when you are happy, fulfilled and on point? When the old destructive voices have quietened? What if you can live into and with meaning? What if you learn innovative ways of thinking that make the unimaginable inevitable? As a leader you are about transformation, courage, change, boldness and vulnerability in the gap of the unknown. You can learn how to show up as you - at your best - to accelerate greatness, to create your thriving work, to foster a just and beautiful world. Contact me for a deep conversation. I only have three spots available currently

Author conversation.
As an author and writer (, I have traveled the ever-changing landscape from shaping ideas to securing publishers. So some of you have asked me to offer a hybrid of mentoring, coaching, consulting for writers. But here is the thing about you, so you can see if this speaks to you: If you are a calm, sensitive, and curious deep thinker who excels or wants to excel in creating clear narrative from the highly complex issues, stories and data surrounding us, if you embody a space of kindness, safety and equanimity so others (even your fiction or non-fiction characters) cannot help but unfold in who they are, if you know what it takes to be consistent and mindful, but you also judge yourself for being slow, too meticulous, an over-achiever, too sensitive, not and never good enough, cold and indifferent, and perhaps you don't even believe in yourself - not in this, not in your writing, not in your thinking - you have come to the right place. I am right with you to explore the doubts and fears that hold you back. Together we’ll play with what it is to think like a reader, to work like a writer, to enjoy the process above all. What makes a story a success? What makes you a writer? How do you complete a story? How do you work with editors, your inner critic? How do you go about publishing? What do you do when writer's block hits?  Contact me for a deep conversation on this. Again, I only have three spots available currently

Amazing result.
“I want to share the final result of my daughter’s college planning since I brought a related topic to some of our coaching. My daughter got an acceptance notification from Harvard this morning. She will be playing ice-hockey on Harvard Crimson, the varsity team of the university, from September this year.  The coaching helped my family to get this amazing result from my side.” — Eiji, Japan. (IT sector)

Space to explore on profound levels.
"I began my coaching uncertain if I was a good candidate. My life was in good shape. I was not unhappy. I had no specific goals in mind. But I also knew that something powerful in me longed for greater expression. With gentle guidance, deep listening, truthfulness and patience, Sophie gave me space to explore this on profound levels.  She helped me to discover greater satisfaction and a calm contentment that I hadn’t known or understood before. I am truly grateful and gratified to have worked with Sophie, and urge others to do so, too.”  — Alan G., Hawaii. (Writer)

Able to find answers
“Having moved from Brussels to Toronto end of 2016, it’s great to have Sophie as a coach. Through her experience, true wish to support my progression, and powerful questioning I am able to find personal or professional answers to questions that might keep me back. I can only recommend working with her.” — Hugh, Toronto, Canada. (sales)

For anyone in transition.
"Sophie, your quick and complete follow up after each session was so helpful to recap what territory we had covered, and gave me incentive to follow through on my initiatives.  Sometimes my action was immediate! I got a lot from working with you because you had such a gentle way of helping me dig deep into my values, and showed how I could focus on making small steps to tweak one role in my life at a time. It was fascinating to see that it rippled positively into other aspects on the ‘wheel’.  This is powerful work for anyone at a ‘transition’ in life, or feeling stuck, or battling with procrastination. The work helped me get clear on what I wanted and steps needed to get there. Much gratitude for your deep wisdom and listening skills. I’ll be back for more sometime in the future." — Elaine, Hawaii.
