/ relationship & dating expert /

Hi, I'm Sophie

I help people with relationship issues (with others, singles or with themselves, struggling with anxiety or to get over 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. However, you will need to be prepared to learn and do what it takes, but more importantly take responsibility for your own life and happiness.

I will help you identify the root cause of the problems as it isn’t always as obvious as we may think and work with you through the change process.

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 much.

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.

So who am I?

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.

Along the way, I started to attract people with different types of relationship issues, such as marriage problems or difficulties with family members, as well as people battling their own personal struggles.

So why am I different?

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.



Coaching will define realistic goals and guide you towards outcomes you may have not thought possible.


Unfortunately, once we have settled down, life and routine often take over, meaning that we may not make as much of an effort with each other as we used to.


Some people enjoy being on their own for a while but then start to miss the companionship a relationship can provide and sharing life with someone special.


ometimes, we go through a bad patch. The darkest hour where there is no light at the tunnel, because even if there was, we just can’t see it.

How I will help you

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, not just in terms of relationships, as it also includes all of your interactions with others from an early age to today.

We therefore all have a set of challenging emotional reasons that control 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 we 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 in order to get and attract what you really want.
