As a relationship & dating expert coach, I help people with relationship issues with others, single and struggling to meet a special someone or within themselves, suffering from anxiety, depression or in need to get over traumatic events from the past.
My aim is to inspire and improve people’s lives so if you want positive change, I can help you to help yourself and be more fulfilled. You will however need to be prepared to learn and do what it takes, but more importantly also to take responsibility for your own life therefore for your results and happiness.
Together, we will identify the root cause of what’s holding you back or stopping you (as it isn’t always as obvious as we may think) and work with you through the change process. I will also teach you how to move forward and give you tools to allow you to continue on your journey so you can deal with any wobbles or struggles along the way.
Accepting help is often the first step of the process and probably the hardest. We all need a little support at times to push us in the right direction and eventually get the results that we want so badly.
So if you are serious about improving your current conditions and prepared to do a bit of work on yourself, I can help you create a paradigm shift in your relationships in a way that feels authentic and comfortable to you.
Some people find it quite difficult to write about themselves. What do you say and where do you start? And my answer always is ‘from the beginning’ so let’s go with that…
My name is Sophie Personne and I was born in France. I moved to the UK in 1999 to study International Relations & Politics at Portsmouth University. My early career was in the security industry and I actually thoroughly enjoyed myself at work until the corporate world became a bit too ‘corporate’…
The opportunity of redundancy came up in 2012 and I have never looked back. I started working for myself and set up events for single professionals on the South Coast. I soon realised that a lot of people actually aren’t psychologically ready to be dating and decided it would be better to help them on their journey so I did just that.
I decided to train as an NLP Coach and I have been coaching individuals for nearly 10 years, helping them with their relationship challenges.
I work with people through many different types of relationship issues, such as marriage problems, difficulties with family members, singles struggling to meet the right person, as well as people battling their own personal struggles that prevent them from forging positive relationships.
Probably because of my own journey and life experience.
I found in my previous working life that most people would at some point come to me for advice. Being the only woman in an environment full of testosterone gave me a real insight into the male psyche and taught me invaluable lessons.
Training in NLP, and especially putting all the concepts into practice, changed my life. I am privileged to have worked with many different people over the years, each and every one of them as well as their own experiences, contributing to my wealth of knowledge and understanding.
In 2015, I suffered a nervous break-down. I refused medication and decided I would use my own techniques to get better. This was undoubtedly the darkest hour of my life but in a funny kind of way, I am actually very grateful it happened.
2017 was the next challenge… Possibly the most difficult year in personal terms but I have little doubt that the lessons learnt along the way will allow me to help others in ways I hadn’t imagined.
• You’ve had enough of the unsatisfactory situation you are finding yourself in
• You want to let go of the baggage you have been dragging behind you for most of your life
• You want to let go of anxiety, stress and tensions
• You feel held back and don’t want life to pass you by
• You will be free and happy
• You will accept yourself for who you are
• You will gain a better understanding of yourself and others
• Your self-confidence will be at its highest level
• You will know what you want and how to get it
Coaching is about drawing out your potential and get you to be the best you can be – it is all about YOU and understanding yourself, your behaviours, developing and enabling you to make the right choices.
We all know that we grow through our life experiences, learning what we need in the process. Sometimes, we encounter negative and difficult situations which leave more of a mark on us – often subconsciously – than we would like to. This baggage is actually what has rightly or wrongly moulded you into the person you are today. It comes from your whole life experience, and not just in terms of relationships, as it also includes all of your interactions with others from an early age to now.
We therefore all have a set of challenging emotional reasons that controls our behaviour and makes us act in a certain way or attracts us to certain people as opposed to others. Sometimes we consciously know why that is or what triggers our reactions and sometimes, as much as we think that we do, we really don’t.
I will address these issues and teach you a set of techniques that are unique to you – they can be used time and time again should you need to, giving you some reassurance if you need it. You will also learn how to communicate more effectively (and constructively) in order to get and attract what you really want.
The journey often starts with reading my first book ‘Your Other Half’, as it will help you to understand the deep root cause of your current situation. It also shares simple methods and thought processes that can be easily applied by anyone and was designed to help if you are struggling with current relationships or seeking a new one.
It’s good to talk so let’s have a chat and together, we can identify how to get you where you want to be. Just click below to book a time and I look forward to discovering how I can help you on your journey.
