About Sonia

Ending my Daily Alcohol Pain and joyfully living in Peace

My drinking robbed me of LIFE, not physically (although it came close), but the joy, peace, 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. 

Ever morning I made the decision to stop, yet every evening I drank and felt less of the woman and mother I longed to be on every level. 

I know that making a heartfelt decision to change is not enough to change.

I know that willpower, control, positive thoughts and motivation don’t work and I know why, and that ‘why’ was because my focus was on ALCOHOL being the problem, when the truth was, my drinking was nothing more than an action I had learnt to believe was the solution to my problems…….

Now, with daily profound gratitude for the woman and mother I am, 6 years free of my alcohol pain, and living in grace and peace, I know what does work, and why, and how to deliver it to you, effortlessly.


 Hi, I’m Sonia and I am The Recovery Coach, the very proud sober single mother to my one-in-a-trillion-son, Christopher, and  Mama to my two ‘Girls’, my doglets Gorby & Piccalilli.

Professionally, I am the creator of The Rapid Alcohol Recovery Method,  a Master Practitioner of NLP, a Master Coach, Master Of TimeLine Therapy, Mindset Master, certified Soul Plan Reading and Grace Healing practitioner, who coaches world-wide, as well as being an internationally acclaimed author on addiction & recovery & have appeared on This Morning, GB NEWS, the BBC, in the HuffPost Woman Magazine and in The Daily Mail, in  as well as being a regular contributor to Arianna Huffington’s wellbeing organisation, Thrive Global.

As a former alcoholic & binge eater for almost 28 years, I understand that the way you drink is a response to how you are feeling –  maybe tired, lonely, overwhelmed.  And that alcohol started out as being the ‘solution’, long before it became the problem it is today. 

I know that the glass of wine at the end of your busy day has the intention of making you ‘feel better’ – less stressed, to give you a little bit of peace/calm/you time.

I also know that it is no longer just a glass.  I know that you feel you have no control over when you drink, that alcohol thoughts & feelings haunt your working day, and that ‘feeling better’ is very rarely, if ever, the result.

Changing your drinking is not hard, with a new understanding of your alcohol trap, and I use a unique multi layered skill set and approach to change that is easy and empowering, so that my clients enjoy a level of easy success unheard of in traditional methods and therapies.

“I developed the unique RAPID ALCOHOL RECOVERY METHOD, through my understanding, personal experiences, and sober learning’s. It is the exact process that is effortlessly my life.  It is who I am, and who YOU are designed to be too!”
