About Sonia

Living a Happy, Healthy, HEALED & Whole LIFE   🧡

My drinking robbed me of LIFE, not physically (although it came close), but the Joy, Peace, Happiness, Gratitude and LOVE of a life worth living.

My attempts to not drink, to not pick up that damn first glass was a daily battle I always lost. 

I thought it was me vs vodka, but the truth is it was me vs me.

And from the moment I accepted that profound truth, I  stopped looking at alcohol as the ‘problem’, and recognised drinking was what I did, when I was out of balance with me. 

I stopped thinking alcohol had any hold over me. 

I stopped looking outside for the answers to my pain, to my wounds, for my lack of self-love, and I turned my attention to within me.


And simply through gentle curiosity, kind self-questioning, giving my soul time to answer and then acting on those answers, I found myself walking a magical journey back to my heart, back to the Healthy, Happy, HEALED & Whole HOME of me.

Now, with daily profound gratitude for the woman and mother I am, 6 years free of feeling controlled and lost in my drinking, released from the pains of my past, from feeling Overwhelmed, Stressed and Fearful of myself and my ability to make and stick with any good choices, I now live in Freedom, Grace and Peace, not just around alcohol, but in LIFE. 

 I now know why change can seem so fearful to approach and hard to stick with, and how easy change really works, and I know that any change in LIFE, simply needs an easy process of new self-awareness, self-understanding, and a route back to YOU, that takes you from Pain to Peace, and to your best, Happy, Healthy, HEALED & Whole LIFE, effortlessly.

And it is my gift in LIFE, that through walking that path, I can guide you back to YOU too.
